GO HONDURAS Latino
THIS TRIP HAS REACHED THE MAXIMUM NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS
¿Hablas español? ¡Este viaje es para ti! We are looking for Spanish speakers with a passion for investing into the lives of the young men of Travesia, Honduras! This trip is a special partnership between our Compassion Latino community and the incredible ministry being done by the Buena Vista Sports Academy (BVSA). This trip will be focused on the efforts of BVSA which uses soccer as a way to teach character and share the Gospel with young men – many of whom come from homes plagued by abuse and lack hope for the future. You will spend a lot of time with the Rinos (the soccer players) and their families and encouraging them with the love of Christ. Our goal is that this team will take what God does in and through them in the field and reinvest it into our Latino communities here at home so we can reach our Latino neighbors with the hope of Jesus!
Applicants who are active participants in our Compassion Latino ministry and fluent Spanish-speakers will be given priority. Others are encouraged to apply and your applications will be reviewed for any open spots on the team no later than 120 days prior to the team’s travel.
For more information about this trip please email the Team Leader, Kaitlyn Groover, at email@example.com.
All applications must be submitted no later than 120 days before departure for international trips and 90 days before domestic trips. Please note, applying for a GO Team does not confirm your spot on the team. Once applications are reviewed, you may be requested to participate in an informal interview with a Team Leader. Following review, you will be notified of your acceptance or status on a waiting list. If a team is full you can still apply and be put on a waiting list should a spot become available. If you are applying for a Campus-Specific Team with a campus you do not attend you will be added to the waiting list and notified of any open spots no later than 120 days prior to departure for international teams and 90 days prior to departure for domestic teams.

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.
- For Jason. That he would be given the gift of language as he becomes increasingly proficient in Spanish and would love his community well 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.
