What Can I Do?
If you want to join us on one of our trips, keep an eye out for next year's application deadline and make sure you fill yours out and turn it in early. Then, just make sure you meet all the deadlines and get involved in the mission-related events!
For those of you who are not actually traveling to Honduras, there are still many things you can do to participate.
Each mission ministry has specific needs that you can help with. VBS always needs craft supplies and Medical is constantly looking for certain medications, for example. Check with the ministry leaders for more information about how you can assist them. There are also usually special projects going on that don't fall under a specific ministry area. Talk to Roger or Nancy to find out more information on those, and also contact them if you have an idea for a project. You don't have to go to Honduras to do work there!
The first thing people usually think of as a way to help is to donate money. You can give money for specific missionaries, (but checks must be made out to DRCC), certain ministries, or to the main trip fund. Either way, your contribution is greatly appreciated! Please see our Fundraising page for more information.
If you have plenty of time on your hands and want to get involved that way, you can help plan and carry out mission-related events such as lock-ins and packing parties, help with administrative tasks, or assist specific ministry people with their work. Ask Nancy, Roger, or the ministry leaders what you can do.
Are you an expert on parasites in children who live in Third World countries? Is your special talent building houses with only the supplies you can carry up a mountain on your back? Do you have connections with pharmaceutical companies who have lots of extra worm medicine laying around? Are you an accounting whiz? Do you own your own private jumbo jet? (Okay, so maybe that's just a big dream!) My point is that maybe you don't think you can help out but you might have knowledge or some other resources that are valuable in a way you didn't realize.
And of course, we can never have too many people praying for us!
