In 2015, New Desire expanded their borders and established a full-time presence in the Central American country of Honduras. The ministry headquarters is located an hour and a half north of the capitol city of Tegucigalpa in the rural town of La Ermita. An unfinished house was purchased on a small piece of property in the heart of the community with a vision that it would become a home for our mission work in the area. In 2015, New Desire welcomed Kim Pate, formerly of Boaz, AL, to our staff as Director of Foreign Missions and missionary to Honduras. Kim has 13 years of experience in international missions, and as of June 2015, she is residing in the mission house full-time. In just our few short years in Honduras, we have witnessed many coming to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ! We want you to be a part of this work!
In the town of La Ermita there is an abundant amount of ministry opportunities. Our staff is able to accommodate each group according to their specific talents or gifts. Opportunities include evangelism, food distribution, crusades, VBS, construction, recreational (sports) activities, Bible studies, prayer services and much more! There is something for everyone in the work of the Lord!
If you or your group would like to book a trip to Honduras, please contact us at our home office at 770-684-8987. The all-inclusive price per person (flight, meals, lodging, vehicle maintainence and fuel, drivers, translators, rice & beans for distribution, etc.) is $2000.00 based on a 5-7 day trip. If you would like more information or have any questions, please contact us.
We ask that you continue to pray for God to provide the needs for this ministry. Keep in mind that New Desire is a 501(c)3 organization; therefore, any donation that you make to the ministry is tax deductible and you will receive a tax receipt at the end of the fiscal year. At this time, we are looking to build a building that will serve as a Sunday School space. We pray that you will consider helping us reach this goal.
We are also in prayer that God will send a pastor to lead our church. We are earnestly praying that God will send the man He has chosen to shepherd this flock. Additionally, we have a continuous need for funds to continue the weekly feeding kitchen, meet medical needs, school supplies, baby care items, and any other needs that may arise.
If you are unable to make a trip to Honduras, but you would still like to be a part of the work that is going on there, we have opportunities for you as well! You can become a monthly supporter of New Desire Missions to help us feed families in the community by contacting our office. We also pray that you or your church would consider donating to meet one or more of the needs mentioned above.
Thank you for your interest in our work in Honduras. We pray that you will consider joining us in this effort to spread the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to those who don’t know Him. We know that not everyone is able to go, but we are all called to give, send, and pray. As Jesus said to His disciples in Matthew 9:37, “The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few.” We look forward to serving with you on the mission field!
