Honduras

January 25-February 1, 2023

Leadership Mission International (LMI) is a faith-based, nonprofit organization that provides educational and leadership development programs to young women in Honduras at a rural campus called The Leadership Center (TLC). Students attend a 2-year program where they are immersed in English and take classes in community development, business, and entrepreneurial skills.

We will help young women in Honduras learn English and develop crucial business skills while building community. Team members will visit TLC and participate in students’ daily routine. Activities may include:

  • morning chores (working on the farm) and devotionals
  • attending classes with opportunities to teach in the classroom or provide educational seminars
  • building relationships by helping with homework (speaking and reading English)
  • eating meals in the community dining area

Cuba

February 17-26, 2023

Since 2007, Floris UMC has sent mission teams to Cuba annually through United Methodist Volunteers in Mission (UMVIM). Our teams focus primarily on rebuilding and constructing new churches. We also provide spiritual support to the Methodist Church of Cuba. Construction teams work throughout the country, wherever the need is greatest.

The opportunities in Cuba go beyond helping to build and repair churches, though. You can participate in the life of a local church by attending worship services, group dinners, and Bible study. We also have time to visit local sites in Cuba!

Our next mission trip to Cuba is February 17-26, 2023. The Visa process takes about three months, so we would like to identify teams by mid-September.
