Kara's Heart to Honduras Trip

Organized by: Kara Peterson

The last time I went on any type of "missions trip" was in 2009, when I went to Africa with people from Indiana Wesleyan University. Before that I had been on numerous other trips to use my gifts, talents, and even my shortcomings to try to serve others in the name of glorfiying God and expanding His kingdom. After that trip, however, I seemed to have forgotten about the passion for others that God had placed on my heart. In all honesty, I've spent the last 5 or so years living in pursuit of my own dreams, forgetting the call to go and serve. Over the past 6 months God has really been calling back to a life devoted to expanding His kingdom. I haven't really understood what that means for me and my life, as I haven't felt called to any kind of full-time ministry. So, I've embarked on a journey to pray daily that God would reveal the plans He has for me, the passions He's given me, and the purposes He has called me to. In just a few short weeks I've been reminded of my heart for those in need - both here locally and in other parts of the world. As my heart has been aching to help others, God has brought multiple opportunities for me to serve here in Dayton, and I am beginnging that journey to serve locally on a regular business. He has, however, also given me the opportunity to travel to Honduras to work with Heart to Honduras in various construction and medical projects. I am excited about the opportunity I have to serve the people of Honduras! I have learned in my current job that showing ALL people respect and love is one of the biggest callings God has given us - to reserve judgment and opinions and to love unconditionally. I look forward to the opportunity to travel with others from my local church to do just that! Beyond financial giving, I covet your prayers. I have learned the power of prayer and the importance of being surrounded in prayer. I ask that you'd pray for the people we encounter in Honduras and also our own hearts - that all of our interactions would glorify God and grow His kingdom! For more information, visit
