After hearing great things about Predisan for almost 20 years from friends who have visited Honduras, I was able to see first hand recently how this wonderful organization operates and impacts the lives of so many in Honduras. Their consistent approach "to preach and to heal" is improving the spiritual. mental and physical health of thousands, young and old.
From operating health clinics in mountainous and rural communities, to providing pre-natal care for expectant mothers, to praying with patients and their families, to providing both effective tools and encouragement to those recovering from addictions, Predisan is serving the people of Honduras by being the hands, feet and mouth of Jesus.
What an incredible missions outreach to Hondurans! Predisan is outstanding in its health care delivery model and spiritual outreach program. Christ is at the very heart of everything they do! Quality and excellence are drivers for their amazing work. Thank you for allowing me to experience the loving hands and feet of Christ! You're the best! :)
I really enjoyed my last trip with Predisan. It could have been improved by better planning. It was more a disorganization problem than "plans changed".
Predisan executes their mission flawlessly. They have expanded their reach in the mountain villages, providing health, spiritual and community development services.
Predisan is extremely active in the community, addressing many needs on both a large and small scale. With the help of international and local staff and volunteers, they are able to provide the spectrum of quality health, mental health, wellness and basic needs services.
I was first introduced to Predisan in 2013, when the church I attended was planning a mission trip to Honduras. It was in that trip, where I witness first hand the important work that Predisan was doing with the people of Honduras. Predisan was not only meeting their healthcare needs but their spiritual ones too. They taught them the importance of having a relationship with Jesus Christ. Predisan was also educating the community. They provided financial assistance for education and show them how to live in sanitary conditions. I feel bless to be serving alongside of them. I'm going on by fifth year of working with this organization and truly enjoy it. My husband and my daughter have also gone.
March 2016 was my first year to visit Honduras. My husband and I joined a mission group from our church, Sachse's First Baptist Church. Everyone that we came in contact with was very professional. And I can't say enough praise for our Predisan coordinator/translator/guide, Jhonny Zavala. He was friendly, helpful and extremely professional. We saw many places during our travels in Honduras, such as Tagulcigapa, Catacamas, Culmi and Subirana. The country is breathtaking and the people were very friendly and appreciative. We plan to continue a long term relationship with Predisan!
Predisan does great with loving their community and sharing Jesus with Hondurans while healing them physically.
Predisan is meeting people where they, blessing them with spiritual and physical healing. A Christ-centered and Biblical act indeed.
Several years ago, a group from the Northlake church in Atlanta went to Honduras on a work trip. Part of our week was spent was spent in the mountains with Cedeco as our home base. One objective was to help build latrines for several families in the area. While two friends and I cut rebar for pouring the concrete, the matriarch of the family came into the muddy yard, picked up a scrawny chicken by its legs, and, using a machete, cut off its head. She then scalded and plucked it. Taking it inside, she put in on her stove--a clay or mud structure heated from below with wood, to boil. As we worked in her yard, that chicken became the base of a delicious chicken soup that we were served for lunch. Talk about farm to table!
Not only, however, were we served lunch; we were shown gracious hospitality in this family's home. Their house was a mud brick structure with an open living/kitchen area and sleeping areas in another room, and I was never sure how many family members actually lived there. The floors were dirt but cleanly swept. The Windows had no screens, and the doors were open to the yard making easy access for little animals as well as people. A table in the middle of the room was set with our bowls, Cokes for the gringoes, and a glass with some flowers in the center. Also on the table was a flowered tablecloth, brand new, still with package creases--surely just for us! In this humble home and in the middle of so much poverty, a touch of beauty and pride in being able to serve their guests a meal. I wish I had a picture of that tablecloth with its brightly colored flowers; it will always be a reminder to me of what it means to share your home with others.
