You can choose to bring items to give away during your week in villages. We suggest to keep it at a minimum. The best give away item we know of are water filters.

Travel insurance is included in your Team Member Fee. This covers medical emergencies during your time in Honduras. Ignite will order each member their insurance a week before you arrive and will be emailed their policy card and benefits. Each team member has the same Insurance Card with the same Policy Number which can be viewed online in case of lost card.
Ignite offers you a suggestion of Lessons and Dramas for Children and Youth for your week of ministry. You may use these or plan your own.

It is also recommended that you do the salvation day lesson on the last day.
All linens are provided for your week. These include, pillows, blankets, sheets, and towels.
You will stay in the Ignite Mission House if your ministry is near that location. You will stay in a nearby hotel or school if your ministry is far away from the Mission House.

This can take place during Children's Ministry as a Bible Study or Event that focuses on being a Women of God.
This normally happens as a night special event Church Service that focuses on being a Man of God.
Children or Youth Ministry
You will divide your team members into three groups. These three groups will rotate through the Schools Classrooms until all the grades have been seen. Usually 20 minutes for each session group.
1. Recreation Group: Honduran Recreation leader will be provided by Ignite. We also
provide a parachute and Balls.
2. Lesson Group: Team members prepare a different lesson for each of ministry. The
same lesson will be shared with each school for that day. A translator will be provided.
Please try hard to make the lessons interactive with dramas.
3. Craft Group: Team members will prepare the craft that will go with the Bible Story for
that day. Ignite will provide the amount of students to prepare for.
Please download, print or share the Team Trip Pack List for giving to each Team Member
Passports must be 6 months valid to departure date in order to fly out of country
After the Team Captain has secured a date on the calendar, Ignite will email the Captain information about preparing for the team. The email will include the link to this page for viewing and submitting the Captain Prep Form that is due at least one month before arrival.
Ignite sells shirts, Honduras Vanilla, and Honduran Coffee that can be bought with Credit Card.
Please know that on the last day of ministry we share Christ with each child, student, or adult. Those who want to follow Christ are then given a bible, devotion, and paper with their Disciples name, phone number, start date and location for beginning discipleship. We also write down their phone number if possible. We then place all the Salvation Names on a spreadsheet that is shared with the Team Members for praying.
Your ministry schedule will most likely be in 2 parts each day that is a morning session in a village and Afternoon Session in another village. If you have a Medical Team this team will be in the same village all day with changing locations each day. Morning and Afternoon. The morning ministry will most likely be the same as the afternoon ministry but in different villages. All of this depends on the size of your village. You may choose to go to a Village Elementary School in the morning and to a High School in the afternoon. During these school times you may have women's ministry to the moms of the school or have a construction project of placing floor and roofs in houses.
Not required but a Tetanus Shot is the only shot recommended for your mission trip
Learn some Spanish for your trip with Babbel. Available on your Computer or Phone. Available with in app purchase for $10 a month. Share the link with your team members.
At the end of your trip you will have a day to shop as a tourist and eat at a nice restaurant that is included in your team fee. That can include going to visit the Christ Statue in a National Park and Shopping in Village called the Valley of Angels. Team members love both. For shopping you will be able to pay in Dollars, Local Currency, or Card. It is best to bring small denominations of Dollars.
