GO HONDURAS Student Leaders
Calling High School Boys! This trip is for you! This team will get to spend time with our friends at BVSA Travesia on the beautiful coast of Honduras. This incredible ministry pours into the lives of boys using soccer as a way to teach character, life in community and the Gospel. The goal of the team is to learn about God’s heart for this community, build relationships with the Rinos (soccer team) players, as well as the missionaries who lead this ministry and encourage them! When you go on mission with Jesus, you never come back the same. Join us!
For more information about this trip please email the Team Leader, Jeff Fortson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: Student Leader Teams are especially designed for mature students desiring to go deeper in their relationship with Christ and His love for the Nations. Applications from juniors and seniors, student leadership and those who have participated in at least one other GO Student Team will be given priority. Applicants may be asked to submit a Spiritual Mentor Reference by a Compassion pastor, staff member or life group leader. Once accepted, you will be asked to submit a $100 deposit which will confirm your spot on the team.
About Jason Stringer
Jason serves in Travesia, Honduras with Academia Deportiva de Travesia. The purpose of the sports academy is to mold boys into young men that will lead their future families, and entire community, in a new direction – towards following Jesus, loving and providing for their families, and serving one another. Jason works to connect deeply with these early teen boys using the discipline of sports to build self-esteem, provide English tutoring and educational support, and most importantly – introducing them to Jesus and helping them to learn to follow Him as the One who brings and sustains life. Along with the other missionaries at BVSA Travesia, he serves the community, helping in the name of Jesus with basic needs, prayer and support.
Jason and the team are currently preparing for the academy to open in April 2018. The academy is set to reopen in early April. Until then there is plenty to do! No day ever looks the same with various jobs and projects that are beginning or under way already. These range from maintaining the soccer field (weeds and ants are our #1 enemy!)… to getting netting and lights installed so the field can be used at night in order to get some relief from the 100+ degree days… to meeting with families and getting to know the community better.
We are faithfully trusting God each day. We’re excited to be a part of his plan to redeem this community. Thank you for joining us on the journey!
- For Jason. That he would be given the gift of language as he continues to learn Spanish and would transition well into the community in Travesia.
- For the boys. That they would see Jesus in all that Jason does and follow Him.
- For the people of Travesia. That their hearts would be prepared for the work God is doing in their midst and that they would learn to see how Jesus walked on the earth and do likewise.
