IYC2012 Denver, CO
THANK YOU to IYC2012 for an incredible week in Denver!
Over 100,000 meals were packaged for Heart for Honduras in Canchias, Honduras.
From rocking out to Justin Bieber and Carly Rae Jepsen to dance parties, it’s obvious the students at IYC2012 know how to serve AND have fun!
Not only did we have an incredible time with the students at IYC but the CTW team had the privilege of spending time with the team at Heart for Honduras in Denver. Check out some of the incredible stuff they are doing to impact Honduras!
“HTH Founder Charlie Smith knew the importance of feeding people, but he also came to understand the greater good of creating community by eating together. It is not by chance that the dining hall is the center of life in Canchias.
Beyond feeding people, Heart to Honduras wants to help them learn how to improve their diet through better agriculture practices and new crops. Much of our Canchias property is devoted to model farming as many of the people we minister to live as subsistence farmers. We have developed tilapia ponds, an egg operation and a dairy farm. We’ve cultivated fields of corn, bananas, coffee and other crops. Through our farms not only are people being fed, but they are learning how to produce more food on their own land.”
An example of how the dairy farm is helping the local community:
- As we develop the idea of a farm training center the operation will be used as a model of how others can set up a dairy farm of their own.
- Milk, cheese, yogurt and butter are made and distributed not only for our own purposes (feeding School of Discipleship students, staff and group members) but also a portion is given to local schools to help aid in the nutrition of the children.
