El Ayudante

At El Ayudante our vision is to change lives and transform communities and our mission is to grow committed followers of Jesus Christ by meeting the needs of our community. We are committed to glorify God through intentional relationships and service to our community. We involve the local community in creating their own solutions to the challenges they face every day physically, emotionally, and spiritually. We aim to empower and not enable by collaborating with families, churches, and local leaders to work as a team to solve the presented needs. We are here for the long term. Although we use the energy of short-term missions teams to meet needs, each activity fits into the larger picture of serving our communities where they need it the most. Because of this consistent involvement, a short-term project is part of a lasting, long-term change.

El Ayudante is a growing ministry, finding new and helpful ways to be active in our communities. Some of our current programs include:

Clinica El Ayudante – an on campus clinic that offers medical, dental, optical, ultrasound and lab services

Water Filters – more than 1000 water filters have been installed to date, bringing clean water to many families and communities

Latrines – more than 200 latrines have been installed to date, bringing sanitary bathrooms to familes

Vacation Bible School programs in many of the local schools

Adobe homes are built for needy families

Centro de Aprenizaje – our Learning Center which supports our 70+ scholarship students with tutoring, computer lab and discipleship

Pastor’s conferences are held several times a year for our local pastors

School & church projects – teams adopt local schools or churches and help with needed projects

Spend a year serving our valley and mountain communities in the rural area outside of Comayagua, Honduras. We have a vibrant ministry working directly with the leaders of our communities to meet the needs of their community and in doing so, create committed followers of Christ. Our local staff, missionary staff and many short-term teams and volunteers, actively pursue ministry to the whole person, Spirit, Soul and Body. As an intern, you will integrate immediately into life at El Ayudante – working alongside the EA staff to advance the goals and vision of the ministry. You will be given the responsibility to lead and impact those around you and can serve with the short-term teams and the missionaries with specific duties; to get to know our community on a personal level; all while learning the culture of Honduras.  Before you arrive, you will work out a specific job description for your internship. Your days will be filled with working to advance the initiatives of the community by leading short-term teams in ministry projects – this could include working in our tutoring center, discipleship programs, installing water filters, building homes, basic sanitation projects, church outreaches, children’s programs, etc. The combination of physical projects and relational ministry is fulfilling and changes the lives of our community for Jesus. We are excited to use your talents and passions to advance the vision the Kingdom of God.
