Journey to Honduras with us


Hey MOPS moms,

I hope to see you at MOMCon this year! You’ll be among the first to view a brand-new video about a trip to Honduras that a few of us took to experience the work of Compassion first-hand. We got to meet the moms and babies you and I are helping! I know you’ll be truly inspired by this moving video.

While we wait for the new video to be unveiled, I hope these short videos from the trip brighten your day … Mandy in Honduras

Watch Mandy, MOPS President and CEO, discover how universal motherhood really is as she learns how moms in Honduras sneak veggies into food for their kids — just like we do!

Here, we finally get to taste the delicious homemade bread we spent hours making. So worth it!

Join Mandy on an eye-opening tour of a Honduran mom’s one-room home.

My journey with Compassion started when I saw pictures of children growing up in poverty and my “mommy heart” couldn’t bear it. I had to do something. So, my husband and I sponsored our first child. Since then our world, and his, has never been the same.

If you’d like to sponsor a child or create an online fundraiser for moms and babies in Honduras (it only takes 5 minutes!), take the first step today. Because when MOPS moms unite, lives are transformed in Jesus’ name.
