"The opportunity to serve people in Honduras has changed my life forever. When we started, we knew that people needed hope. At the time, though, I didn’t believe in God, and after three years of only working on physical projects, we realized that we needed a glue that would both keep us together and draw the potential out of each of us. That force is love, and that love comes from a God who gives us hope to keep moving forward regardless of circumstances.”
"My time in Honduras with H&H over the last 6 years has showed me that nothing is impossible with God and that hope can rise from any situation. I commit my time and passion to Humanity & Hope because I believe in the people we serve, and I also believe that sustainable positive life giving change is possible in all situations."
“I originally got involved with H&H because I wanted an opportunity to serve others. Now, five years later, it’s incredible to see that they have actually been serving me. Seeing people realize their purpose in Jesus Christ has been one of the greatest gifts I’ve ever received!”
"When Riley first shared his story with me, I was impressed by how much was getting accomplished given the organization's limited funding. It was not long after our first discussion that my wife and I began supporting the organization financially. My relationship with Riley grew into a friendship and I ended up making a trip with him to see the work first hand. Each time I go to Honduras, I continue to be amazed at how God uses H&H to provide hope and a sustainable future for the Hondurans in the villages they serve."
"I went on my first trip with H&H in 2015, since then my perspective on life has been altered. For me, the lasting relationships established with the villages and the sustainable change that is being created is what sets H&H apart from other organizations. The tangible love that flows both directions from our volunteers to the people we serve lit a fire in me that can't be put out. Serving with H&H was something that I did to help others, I had no idea that it in turn was going to change me."
"I joined the board of H&H in 2010. At that point, my motivation was really only to help my brother, Riley. However, fighting generational poverty has become one the most important things in my life. The impact of sustainable change alters lives both now and for generations. I love seeing the joy of people who now have a brighter future."
"The people of Honduras stole a piece of my heart over a decade ago, and they haven't given it back. It has been an honor and a privilege to serve these loving people through H&H, specifically meeting the eye care and medical needs of the villages we serve. Every time I return to Honduras, I am amazed to see the physical and emotional changes in the people and their villages. This drives me to continue to pour into them so they can have the abundance to serve their neighbors."
"My first experience in Honduras was a relief trip. I know that in places of desperate poverty and no hope, relief help matters. But what I realized was that the true change that needed to be made was lasting hope and generational opportunity! I love H&H's holistic approach to providing hope and long-term opportunity to people and communities that are seeking it and willing to work for it. This is not help for a day or a month -- this is love, relationship, development, and hope for the future."
"I learned about H&H during a trip to Honduras with another organization. I loved how sustainable change was being achieved by Humanity & Hope! I felt the need to get involved and to help strategically empower people to break the poverty cycle with love."
