BRING A MISSION TEAM
Our needs at House of Hope offer a wide range of opportunities for ministry. Types of mission teams include: women’s ministry, VBS or other children’s ministries, counseling and related teaching, medical, and construction. They can also include a combination of these. Since House of Hope is funded solely through generous monthly supporters, we ask short-term teams to fund their specified projects while in Nicaragua. Building projects are dependent on the skill set, time available, and amount of budget raised by the team and will be determined by the current need. Heavy construction projects include plumbing, electrical, welding, cement work, and masonry. Light construction projects consist of activities such as painting, cleaning, digging, and repairs.
House of Hope has been under construction since July of 2004. We will have a total of 30 houses for women with multiple children (14 units are completed). Also completed are ten units for mothers with one child and a large building for 36 individuals. We have a front reception area and office newly renovated following a fire. We now have a dining hall where the residents eat and serves as the work space for the card making cottage industry. We will eventually have a sewing factory.
The construction is funded by teams that raise funds for the construction materials and then come to Nicaragua to donate their labor. We host a maximum of one contruction team per month.
House of Hope is also in need of other types of team work. Teams can also be involved in Vacation Bible School (VBS), medical/dental, sewing/knitting or teaching Bible classes. Teams can also combine work such as one team may do both construction work with VBS.
There is still much to be done. Donations for cost of construction can be made either online or by mail. Click here to donate.
