Forgotten Children’s Ministry
Did you know over 300,000 children under the age of sixteen live on the streets in Honduras? 12,000 die each year and thirty-six die each day of diseases that could have been prevented. Honduras is one of the poorest countries in Latin America. Also, it has one of the highest murder rates. They are a poverty stricken land and about half of the population is rural. 75% of the rural population is below poverty line, which means they are unable to meet any of their basic needs. Honduras plays a very important part in my life today. Honduras is important to me because I minister to children, calm those who are threatened daily, and cure hurts and pains. Rescue the street children of Honduras through the hope of God’s love. Forgotten Children’s ministry is a ministry where we go to the nastiest most horrifying parts of Honduras and share the gospel to everyone. I became a part of this ministry my senior year of high school. It was tough to miss a week of school but I am so glad I had the opportunity to go. In Forgotten Children’s Ministry we went hut to hut proclaiming the gospel, stood on the road side passing out rice and beans, and spent time with the children at the FCM shelter. FCM is broken down into a boy and girls shelter of children who were found on the streets by the founder of the ministry, Stan. Our mission team stayed at the boy’s shelter in a room full of bunk beds, no air conditioning, and no running water. We had a full week with these boys and grew very close to them even though we did not speak their language. There was one certain boy, Carlos Danielle, who clung to me and my dad for the whole week. All of those boys were a blessing, to see the smile they had on their faces when you gave them a hug and told them you loved them in Spanish. That is all they wanted was to be shown love and to be told that they are loved. I had an amazing experience ministering to the children and families of Honduras.
So many Hondurans...
