January 2021 - Honduras Medical/Dental Mission Trip


Opportunity Overview

Honduras January 2021: Medical/Dental

January 15-22, 2021

COVID -19 UPDATE:    Leaders and healthcare providers with Luke 9:2 Ministries are closely monitoring the current COVID-19 pandemic and are prepared to make adjustments in our medical mission trips as needed to protect the safety and health of our healthcare providers and volunteers.  For now, we are continuing to plan for our annual January Medical/Dental Mission trip to Honduras, however please stay tuned as the situation in Honduras and the U.S. may require changes in our current plans.

Overview:   A large group of healthcare providers, dentists, teachers and laypersons will work with our local physician, Dr. Jorge Ponce, to provide care and spiritual support to the communities outside of Cofradia, Honduras.  We will provide acute medical care, chronic disease management, dental services, medications, and eyeglasses to approximately 2,000 patients in five of the 20 communities overseen by our in-country physician.  We look forward to supporting local church leaders and continuing to provide longitudinal care for needy families with whom we have built long-term relationships. 

A trip with Luke 9:2 Ministries presents an opportunity to make a long-term impact on both the physical and spiritual health of the people of Honduras.  We are currently looking for healthcare providers (physician, nurse, nurse practitioner, physician assistant, dentist, physical therapist, pharmacist, optometrist, counselor, psychologist) as well as interested laypersons to complete our team of volunteers.  If you have questions, please email us at [email protected]
