Teen Missions Trip (ages 13-19)
Work & Evangelism Team
If you have an adventurous spirit, enjoy ministering to children, and are not afraid of some hard work, then take a trip out to the remote area of La Mosquitia, Honduras!
Travel: After completing your training at the Lord’s Boot Camp, you bus to the Orlando International Airport and fly across the Gulf of Mexico, Cuba, and the Caribbean Sea to Panama City, Panama. A short connecting flight takes you to San Pedro Sula, Honduras. From the airport, you will bus two hours south to the Teen Missions in Honduras Bible, Missionary & Work (BMW) Training Center near the town of San Isidro. You will bus to the coast, traveling through palm oil plantations along sandy beaches, and across multiple rivers on rafts, before completing your journey by motorized canoe to your project site in Cocobila.
Ministry: You will share the love and hope of Jesus Christ through puppets, music and games as you play with the kids. When you are not out on the boat, your team will be working at the new BMW that Teen Missions is opening in La Mosquitia. For the second half of your summer in Honduras, your team will return to the main Teen Missions base near Santa Cruz de Yojoa. There, you will help to continue paving a roadway so the vehicles don’t get stuck in the mud on their way up to the base. You will also have evangelism opportunities in nearby parks, soccer fields and bilingual schools.
Adventure: At the end of this exciting trip, you will enjoy shopping for hammocks, machetes, jewelry and other precious souvenirs, as well as spending a day on the beach of the beautiful Caribbean Sea.
Project Expense: $3490 U.S. plus $30 Registration Fee

“Our time here in Honduras has been the adventure of a lifetime! From riding through the country in the back of a pickup truck to gliding down the cool, dark river on a motorboat, this trip has been like nothing I’ve ever experienced. The opportunities we’ve had to share God’s love and Good News have been numerous, and it’s been so much fun even just to be able to hang out with the children in the villages we are visiting. The culture is startlingly different, and yet the people of Honduras have the same need for Jesus as anywhere else.”
“Training at the Lord’s Boot Camp was a truly amazing experience. I learned so much more than I thought was possible. I was equipped thoroughly for the field, I became adjusted to less comfortable living conditions and I really improved my cleanliness and work ethic. I also learned about teamwork, faith, calling, and persistence. It honestly took everything in me to get through the last couple weeks. Some days I’d just think to myself, “What am I doing here?” I would have to remember the answer, “I am doing this to answer the calling of the Lord of the universe to spread His words to all of creation.” I am a missionary, and I’m loving every moment of it.”
“Coming to Honduras was kind of scary...I mean leaving the country without my parents. But something God showed me one of my first days here is Psalm 27:1 which talks about not being afraid because God is with us. So even though coming here was scary, I know I can do it because God is with me and through Him I can do all things!”
