Contact the Diocese of Honduras  SAMS' recruits, sends and supports missionaries
Honduras is the second poorest country in Central America, with 50% of its population under the age of 18. Poverty, AIDS, teenage pregnancy and other social problems have combined to create many orphaned, abandoned, and abused children throughout the country. Some of these children end up living on the streets, some are exploited and even those children who are rescued from such dire situations often find themselves facing a lonely existence in a government-run institution.

From this sad reality, a vision was born to create The Hope of Jesus Children’s Home, a family-like home where children will be safe, nurtured, given opportunities for their future and learn about God’s great love for them.

Many dedicated Christians have collaborated to help turn this dream into a reality, including the Honduran Episcopal Church, Hope for His Children International, The South American Missionary Society (SAMS) and many churches and individuals from various denominations.

SAMS missionaries Mike and Kim Miller are providing the leadership for the project. The Millers gained a deeper understanding of the suffering of Honduras’ vulnerable children after volunteering at a children’s home in Tegucigalpa in 1999. Today they are active in reflecting Christ’s character as a helper and defender of the fatherless, as they press forward with the construction and development of The Hope of Jesus Children’s Home.
