In January of 2008, an invitation was extended to HTF to join a friend on a “scouting” trip to Honduras. During this trip, we were to meet a pastor who could potentially need our help with a building project. He was out of the country, however, and God had other plans. HTF met Fito & Sol De La O and their talented family with a heart for missions.
This family began to tell us of their passion for the children of their country and their dream of starting a Christian school in the community of San Juan Pueblo to be Christ’s hands extended. The rest is history! Three months later, Mercy Christian Academy was built, painted and filled with curriculum/supplies. 67 children blessed the campus on opening day!
Mercy Christian Academy is now thriving with 180 students, buzzing with laughter and the love of God! It is the highlight and safe haven of the community. HTF and donors continue to support this ministry through supplies, student scholarships and various building projects.
If you would like to be a part of the Mercy Christian Academy family, you can do so by contacting Jennifer at firstname.lastname@example.org. Enrollment is growing, and we are always in need of scholarship sponsors! $600 will sponsor one of these precious children for the year. Partial scholarships are available, as well.
