Gesu's Mission in Honduras


Through the experience of an immersion trip, participants will contribute significantly to many needs of the Honduran people. Participants will work on construction projects. The trip will also expand one’s view of the Creator, the great need in the world, and the relative unimportance of “things” in our lives. This will be a trip of “reverse mission” where we learn some of life’s most important lessons from the poorest of the poor.

Trip Dates: June 20-27, 2024
Trip Cost: $2,000
Applicants must be entering AT LEAST the 11th Grade in the 2024-2025 school year to participate.

Upcoming trips:
• October 27 - November 3, 2023

Trips are medical and construction brigade trips. All types of volunteers are needed & previous mission experience or Spanish language skills are not necessarily required. Non-medical volunteers are needed to help with many varieties of work. All ages and talents are welcome! (Under 18 will need a parent or guardian.)

Trip cost includes airfare, ground transportation, lodging, all meals with plenty of food, housekeeping service, laundry, etc. The trip cost also helps to purchase medicines and medical and construction supplies. 

These trips offer wonderful opportunities to be part of a larger group doing great work. If you would like to sign up or get additional information please visit: and

Reconsider travel to Honduras due to crime. Some areas have increased risk. Read the entire Travel Advisory.

Do not travel to:

Gracias a Dios Department due to crime.

Country Summary: Violent crime, such as homicide and armed robbery, is common. Violent gang activity, such as extortion, violent street crime, rape, and narcotics and human trafficking, is widespread. Local police and emergency services lack sufficient resources to respond effectively to serious crime.

Read the country information page for additional information on travel to Honduras.

If you decide to travel to Honduras:

Gracias a Dios Department – Level 4: Do Not Travel

Gracias a Dios is an isolated area with high levels of criminal activity and drug trafficking. Infrastructure is weak, government services are limited, and police and military presence is scarce.

  • The U.S. government has limited ability to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens in Gracias a Dios as U.S. government employees are restricted from traveling to the area.
