HONDURAN CONGREGATIONAL MISSION
San Pedro Sula, Honduras
The Honduran Congregational Mission of San Pedro Sula is a ministry created by the vision of Majken Broby. Sensing God’s call to Honduras in 1974, Ms. Broby established the mission to meet both the spiritual and physical needs of the Honduran people.
The Honduran Congregational Mission supports nine churches, operates a bakery, medical and dental clinics, a pharmacy, a feeding station for children, and an elementary school for preschool through first grade.
The “home church” of the mission, Emmanuel Congregational Church located in the village of Rivera Hernandez, has adopted the home-group method of evangelism. Lay workers assist with this ministry as leaders of home groups. Both men and women participate in this growing ministry.
The mission’s dental and medical clinics provide health care for clients who would not otherwise have access to such vital services. During a typical six-month period, approximately 3,500 patients are treated. An average of 30 pregnant women per month visit the medical clinic. The nearest hospital to the mission site is one hour’s travel. Most women who utilize the mission clinic cannot afford the expense of hospital births. The mission is in the process of adding a birthing center to the clinic. The Honduran mission supports all staff salaries and pharmaceutical costs.
The feeding station provides a daily noon-time meal to an average of seventy-five low income children. The majority of these children come from single-parent families who reside on the impoverished outskirts of the city.
The mission operates a bakery (panaderia) that provides income for the mission as well as job training. Computer training is offered to students who do not have the financial means to participate in schools of higher education in San Pedro Sula.
