The Connect Global Team operates under the mandate found in Matthew 28:19, "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations ". Our purpose is To share the Good News of Jesus around the world and help others do the same. One of the ways we are accomplishing this is by partnering with Pastors and Missionaries around the world who do the work of making disciples in some of the farthest, and most unreached areas in the world.
There are many ways that Connect Global has chosen to help raise up communities in Honduras. One way we have done this is by partnering with local church leaders who have a heart and passion for prison ministry. We have visited about 9 prisons over the past few years in various cities around the country.
The people of Honduras are very welcoming and hospitable. Their culture is very open, and it's not uncommon to be invited (especially if you're on a mission trip there) into their home to relax and visit. The people of Honduras appreciate when Americans come to the country.
Firsthand Experience Quote:
"Since the vast majority of Americans who go to Honduras are going to help improve the Hondurans' quality of life, the people are open and receptive to just about anyone coming from the U.S. This gives Americans a golden opportunity for evangelism and opportunities for discipleship."

Dr. Johnny Moffitt will be a part of Connect Global's Trip this February to Tegucigalpa to visit prisons and train leaders for prison ministry.
Johnny Moffitt has been invited to prisons around the world to teach officials, correctional staff, diplomats, and volunteers how to effectively minister to inmates as well as serve families affected by their incarcerated family members. The prisons of Honduras are in need of hope and the message of Jesus Christ. Our team will make a couple of prison visits as well as train prison leaders, and volunteers.
We are grateful for Johnny's ministry and teaching and he and his wife, Betty Moffitt being able to share their time and expertise on this trip.
