Mission Honduras

Teacher Mike McCarty led a team of student and adult volunteers to Honduras for Kuemper's 1st mission trip in March 2017. Students and adults raised money all year to pay for supplies to build two houses, fund a portion of a third home, build bunk beds, provide medical supplies and vitamins to the local clinic, pay for a gardener to oversee a school garden, and money to develop a character education program for the school. 

The missioners spent 10 days helping the Honduran people, embracing their culture, and spreading God's love. The students were amazed at the living conditions of the people at Nueva Capital. 

Mike McCarty said, "Our goal is to immerse our students in Honduras so when they come back, they will use what they have learned to begin charitable projects in the US. We want our students to live out the ministry of Jesus Christ by serving others. Mission Honduras does just that. Learning to love the service they do for others will be infectious, leading them to become more and more disciples of Christ."

The school plans to make Mission Honduras a biannual trip, occurring on opposite years of Kuemper's Then Feed Just One food project. 


Then Feed Just One

“If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one.” -Mother Teresa

Every two years, preschool-12th grade students participate in the Then Feed Just One food packaging event. This project provides over 200,000 meals for the hungry people of Honduras. It's a wonderful opportunity for students and community members of all ages to work side-by-side to help the hungry people of the world. 

Throughout the school year, students help raise the funds needed to purchase to the rice based meals and to ship them to Honduras.  In the spring, the entire school spends a day packaging the meals and preparing them for shipment.

The school knows that these meals will not solve the hunger crisis in the world, but with the Christian philosophy echoed by Mother Teresa in mind, the school wants to provide food for God's people, even if it's just one person.
