Connect Global visit with the Firefighters of Honduras

In 2015, Connect Global launched an initiative in Honduras we call Connected Community. As a part of our ongoing support and investment into the Community of La Ceiba, Honduras our teams have provided several rounds of gear donations, a 2-day training for members of the local police department, and we have also engaged with the Fire Departments of La Ceiba, and El Porvenir to provide fire suits and other job related support.

Global Pathway in Honduras

Global Pathway in Honduras

What is Global Pathway?

 
God loves to bless the work of the local church when that work includes reaching out to the nations of the earth.
— Dr. Jerry Williamson, President of Go To Nations

 

GLOBAL PATHWAY IS SET OF CHURCH EMPOWERMENT TOOLS THAT WILL LAUNCH THE LOCAL BODY INTO GREATER EFFECTIVENESS IN REACHING GOD'S GLOBAL HARVEST.

We understand the struggles of leading the local church. Pastors and church leaders carry a dream deep within their hearts to see God's call fulfilled in their own lives and in their churches.  Endless hours of work and sacrifice are often given, year after year, in order to see the church progress in true spiritual growth and purpose.  But many times, one area of the church's growth seems to fall short because the pastor does not know exactly how to approach it--namely, the church's global outreach or missions program. Global Pathway is designed to help pastors eliminate the uncertainty of missions and help their churches launch strong missions programs or help create new potential for existing ones.  

Three Core Principles form the foundation for this transformational training:

1. Every Christian is called by God to take personal ownership of the Great Commission.

2. The local church is God's primary instrument to reach the world for Christ, and must be mobilized for this purpose.

3. The local church is the seed bed for all missionaries, and the sending force behind all missionaries.

The Importance of Clean Water

The Importance of Clean Water

In 2016 Connect Global partnered with the Community Water District in El Tamarindo to support a plan to give water to the residents of this remote and very water insecure town. In August of 2018, Connect Global helped complete the third phase of this current plan to bring water to 2 communities near the original well that was dug. In August 2019 we plan to complete another clean water project in this area. Thank You for your support. 


Access to Water around the world is a problem

More than 600 million people still lack ready access to improved sources of drinking water.

Connect Global shares the message of Jesus through collaborative and sustainable solutions to needs around the world. One of the ways we complete this is through clean water projects. We decided to partner with the community run, Water Management District, in Valle, Honduras to come up with a sustainable solution for not only the well but a supply chain to provide water directly to each resident in a sustainable way.

Connect Global has chosen to be a part of the solution

We also hosted a team in Altos De Estiquirin in August 2018 to do work on an existing well and make connections so that each of their residents will have access to clean water. 

Our Next Water Project will be in San Lorenzo in late summer of 2019. You can come with us and help bring clean water to a community in Need!

How You can Help provide clean water to this town in Honduras

We are raising $5000 to complete this project and we need your help. Whether you can give $5 or $50 every penny counts. You can literally save lives by helping us. Clean Water can equal improvements in education, income and overall health.

In addition to clean water, our team has been able to help a local school get a kick-start to the new school year, and we also poured several new Concrete floors which will help several families by keeping the elements out of their homes.

Maternity Home Project Update Spring 2019

Maternity Home Project Update Spring 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 May 2019.


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. We are so grateful for everyone who has donated and been a part of this journey.

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

The Connect Global Team shared a fun morning with the elders of El Porvenir and were blessed to invest in their community by purchasing some of the handmade crafts they had prepared.

Aquaponics Update from Connect Global March 2019

Aquaponics Update from Connect Global March 2019

The Connect Global Team has been investing in Aquaponics since our inception. Our First Official Trip as 'Connect Global' to Cusuna, we built 5 aquaponic systems. We have learned a lot since then, and our friend and partner Jorge Amador has built many more and taught several people his skills as well. We plan to build and facilitate an Aquaponic Training Center in Honduras in 2019.

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.

Over 660 Million people around the world still drink dirty water. People without access to clean drinking water become ill, miss out on school, make less money, and can even die from water borne disease.
