Then Feed Just One & Mission Honduras

#GivingTuesday 2020
Even though our efforts of packing food and sending students to Honduras have been halted because of the pandemic, Kuemper is still standing strong and supporting the people we know and love in Honduras. If we can't support them with our time and talents this year, let's continue to support them with our treasure.

Join us this #GivingTuesday and help us raise funds for Mission Honduras and Then Feed Just One.

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

 
 

Mission Honduras

2019 Mission Trip
April 2-12th, 2019
Kuemper students and adults volunteer for a mission trip to Honduras every two years.  This year they built two homes, bunk beds, picnic tables, and vertical gardens. Check out the Mission Honduras website.

From Mr. McCarty, group leader, on the last day in Honduras 2019:

"Come Holy Spirit Come, and that is exactly what happened! I have had the wonderful opportunity to lead 13 other adults and 25 students Missioners into Honduras. 39 souls that bonded, shared, cried and built with one another relationships and homes that as my favorite philosopher, Squince, once said, will last F-O-R-E-V-E-R! (Sandlot reference-the real story of my childhood)

Growing pains were encountered along the way by yours truly, but I knew that with the help of your prayers we would be successful. I knew that the people that God had chosen for this mission were quality people. I knew that many many people back home had supported us along the way in fundraising, prayers and well-wishes and YOU have not let us down. I knew that the Holy Spirit was with us BEFORE we left for the mission on April 2nd. Mission: you never know what you are gonna get until you go on one. You can plan, but plan to change along the way, reinvent, adjust, pursue more options and pray always. "



2017 Mission Trip
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."
