Maternity Home Project Update June 2019

Maternity Home Project Update June 2019

The Connect Global Team is very excited about the progress of the Maternity Home Ministry as well as the building and construction efforts which are scheduled to be complete in Summer 2019.


The Connect Global team is overjoyed with the amazing work that has been done on the Maternity Home in La Ceiba, Honduras. Thank You!

This home is nearly complete and we could not be more excited to begin our ministry efforts inside the newly built facility. In March (2019) the Connect Global staff had an opportunity to finalize the contract with the hospital administration which will allow us to begin the operations for the Maternity Home as soon as the construction is finalized. We are so grateful for everyone who has donated and been a part of this journey.

We were able to tour the Maternity Home today with our current mission team. Tomorrow is one of the final construction related inspections and we expect to be able to begin staffing immediately.

The rooms are beautiful and it is apparent that great attention was paid to every detail. From the foundation to the roof, every facet of the construction of this building is done with excellence.

This Maternity Home allows Connect Global the access to serve both moms and newborns with great care and dignity while sharing the good news of Jesus with employees, hospital staff and each mom and their children.

Our focus and intention has always been on the relationships we can build within this facility through the operation of this Maternity Home Ministry.

We want to thank you for your prayer and support as we continue to invest in this ministry over the coming weeks, months and years. Thank You for sharing the vision and for joining in this cause. We are truly better together and we could never express our gratitude sufficiently.

Together we have been able to work towards the completion of a Maternity Home in La Ceiba, Honduras. Thank You!

This home is nearly complete and we could not be more excited to begin our ministry efforts inside the newly built, 24 bed facility. The Connect Global staff had an opportunity to finalize the contract which will allow us to begin forming the operations staff for the Maternity Home.

Connect Global Visit to the Elders Home in El Porvenir

Connect Global Visit to the Elders Home in El Porvenir

Connect Global mission team visit to El Porvenir

There are many ways that Connect Global has chosen to impact communities in Honduras. We often will find smaller sub communities to work with and one of those communities is the Elders Home in El Porvenir. Last year we visited and delivered prescription glasses as well as other items that were requested to help them create handmade gifts and crafts which they then sell to supplement their income.

This home provides a safe a secure place for some of El Porvenir’s most vulnerable citizens to engage with others, make crafts, and be fed. Our relationship with the Director, Olivia, has been able to help us know what is needed and what will be a blessing to the men and women who benefit from this home. It is our desire to help in any way possible and to help find sustainable ways to supplement the work Olivia is doing.

In addition to prescription glasses and knitting materials we have also provided a fully functional aquaponic food system. This is a blessing to the home’s already functioning chicken coops and in ground gardens. Aquaponics is a way for the home to provide some extra proteins and leafy veggies to an already vulnerable group of people and help ensure a nutritious diet.

Improving someone’s quality of life is easier to achieve than you may think.

We are grateful for you and for all the supporters we have been so fortunate to have been backed by over the years. We are always on the look out for more ways to support and help these communities and we will continue to share with you the success of those outreaches and how you can get plugged in.

If you are able to give a donation whether it is financial or something like glasses, small electronics, or medial supplies please click the donation button below or send us an email.

Thank You

Prison Ministry in Tegucigalpa

Prison Ministry in Tegucigalpa

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.

Giving the Gift of Vision

Giving the Gift of Vision

Connect Global was able to give glasses to and improve vision for seniors in need.

There are many ways that Connect Global has chosen to help and raise up the communities in Honduras. We have many large projects, but you may be surprised to find out that along the way we also find other ways to make a difference as well.

One of the ways we recently supported the communities in Honduras was by bringing new eye glasses to a senior home. These glasses were donated to Connect Global, and we knew that we had the perfect recipients. We have been visiting this special home over the past year and providing many different valuable gifts to this amazing group.

The Importance of a Concrete Floor

The Importance of a Concrete Floor

We believe in providing sustainable and tangible solutions to solvable problems that people face.

Dirt floors are very common in many parts of the world. In Honduras, many homes have very basic walls and a roof, but many of the homes are lacking a very basic, important element— a concrete floor. 

Why are concrete floors so important?

The Connect Global team works hard but we have fun too.

The Connect Global team works hard but we have fun too.

A 2007 World Bank study of a Mexican government program to replace dirt floors with cement found that doing so "significantly improves the health of young children."

Among the study's findings: "A complete substitution of dirt floors by cement floors in a house leads to a 78 percent reduction in parasitic infestations, a 49 percent reduction in diarrhea, an 81 percent reduction in anemia and a 36 to 96 percent improvement in cognitive development."

Beyond this, adults reported "increased satisfaction with ... their quality of life."

Our Connect Global team was able to pour 3 new floors for families in need as well as leave the funds to pour 2 more.  

The main focus of the Connect Global Honduras trip in August 2018 was to complete a water well project. We were also able to complete 3 NEW concrete floors while we were in town. Concrete floors are a huge need and they make an immediate impact. These floors improve the quality of life and may even save lives. These families have plenty to overcome and enough challenges to face that we believe a safe, sanitary floor should not be something they have to worry about. 

If you would like to help us sponsor more concrete floors in Honduras, we invite you to make a tax-deductible donation towards our upcoming trips and projects.

You can help a family in need get a clean, and safe new floor this year! 


Connect Global team members were able to bless several families with a freshly poured concrete floor.

National Ministry Leaders Summit

National Ministry Leaders Summit

CONNECT GLOBAL is investing in the local pastors and leaders of the church in La Ceiba. We believe that their destiny is to not only reach their communities but all communities around the world. We are bringing several teachers and pastors who will share their expertise with the local church leaders on our next trip, July 14-22. 

A New Home for Maria

A New Home for Maria

The Connect Global Team often comes across a story and situation that just makes sense to offer help. Our friend and National Director Jorge Amador was introduced to Maria through our friends Pastor Allan and Pastor Miguel of CCI Church. CCI Church is very active in opening up their church to the community and offer aide to so many in need near La Ceiba, Honduras.
