Transportation Vital to the Mission of Destino del Reino

Destino relies heavily on buses in their ministry. Their work includes an orphanage, a school which now goes up to middle school, a church, and hosting mission teams. The families they work with in the Siguatepeque area of Honduras is large, mountainous, and primarily on dirt roads with LOTS of potholes. Just a week of riding on those roads is enough for most mission teams to be tired and beat up from the jostling. The amount of travel on poor roads takes a toll on tires, chassis, and engine, so maintenance and repair is a constant.

During our week at Destino we saw 2 buses sitting idle in the yard with one requiring minor repair and the other needing an engine. We were on the last bus and it required repair twice during the week as it needed tires. And school starts next week.

Whether you wish to sponsor a child in the school, support Destino in your prprayers or participation, or want to help repair a vehicle, I can assure you that you'd be hard pressed to find a more transformational ministry anywhere! Contact Rhonda and her team at
Destino and tell her Scott sent you.
