Each year, hundreds of Calvary’s members and friends travel around the globe as a part of any number of Mission Journeys. As a part of these Journeys, participants serve in various ways to build relationships to bring people to a DYNAMIC life in Christ.
From medical clinics, to Vacation Bible School, to building homes in the Dominican Republic, the experience of a Mission Journey is life-changing.
Answer the Call!
When Jesus said to, “go and make disciples of all nations…” (The Great Commission, Matt. 28:19-20) He wasn’t just talking to the “super” Christians; He was talking to every believer. We believe God has uniquely gifted each believer with gifts and talents to use to advance His Kingdom and join in His mission. There are many ways that the Spirit of God may lead you to participate in one of these exciting opportunities:
* PRAY for the men, women, and children that will be led to serve by going. Pray for their training, health, and safety as each one reaches out to impact the Kingdom of God.
* GIVE to this ministry as the Spirit of God leads. Not all are called to go, but some are called to support others through financial resources.
* GO, extend yourself and be a part of what God is doing around the world! Acts 1:8 commands us to be God's witnesses both here at home and all across the globe.

What Is Sponsorship?
Sponsorship is an incredibly powerful way to help one poor child break the bonds of poverty. It connects you with an individual child who desperately needs your help, and lets you provide life-changing benefits to that child for a comparatively small contribution. Sponsorship is your chance to build a lifelong friendship with an impoverished child, one that will alter the course of his or her life.
How Sponsorship Helps?
Your donation of $336 ensures your sponsored child receives support through the school year. Your sponsored child will receive basic necessities like school uniforms, tuition or supplies so that poverty doesn't stand in the way of their education.
Where Your Donation Goes?
As a sponsor, you'll be amazed by how mu ch can be accomplished with so little. Your contribution guarantees your sponsored child receives benefits and support that can dramatically change his or her life. Colegio El Buen Pastor is a ministry of Baptist Church of the Good Shepherd, Calvary Church have a long relationship with them, and with your help we can promote changes on the next generation in the city of Santiago Atitlán.
How do I connect to my sponsored child?
You'll be given the chance to personally connect with your sponsored child and build a relationship that could change both of your lives. There are many ways to get to know and encourage your child—through letters, cards, packages, and a visit to the child.

COUNTRY OF HONDURAS
Catholicism’s influence is rapidly declining. In some polls, the 80% affiliation rate is reportedly as low as 47%. The greatest factors contributing to this decline include the lack of indigenous personnel, widespread nominalism, the influence of animism/paganism within the Church and large-scale migration to evangelical churches. Only about 20% of Catholics are actively involved in the Church. There is considerable agreement between Catholics and evangelicals on communal and social issues. Pray for a Holy Spirit-driven revival to sweep through the Catholic Church; the impact of this could still transform Honduran society.
