2000: God had a plan and
Worldwide Heart to Heart began.
In September of 2000, Oscar traveled to Puerto Cortes, where he was born, looking for a way to help kids left on the street after Hurricane Mitch. During this trip, he met a stranger who told him that he dreamed, the previous night, that Oscar would be coming. God had told this man to help Oscar, and he gave him 8 acres of land in Tegucigalpita. This land is now the site of Heart to Heart Children's village.
Worldwide Heart to Heart became a registered 501c3 nonprofit in the United States.
Oscar and Amy Serrano and Mary and Lyle Frenter are the founders of Worldwide Heart to Heart Ministries.
2003: Oscar & Amy moved to Honduras
Our Directors, Pastor Oscar and Amy Serrano and family, moved to Honduras to live full time. We began our Meals from the Heart program, feeding 80 children in Puerto Cortes who lived at the dump and on the streets. On Sept. 21, our first 5 boys came to live at our partially finished home in Tegucigalpita.
2004 - 2009: The boys, girls and babies homes were finished
Thanks to donations from Mercy Ships, numerous churches and countless individuals, the village was completed and we started housing children, giving them a wonderful, Christ-filled home where they were safe and loved.
2008: We built our church
What began as a small Bible Study in the home of our National Directors, Pastor Oscar and Amy Serrano, grew to a congregation of almost 300 in a few months. So, in 2008 we built a church.
2011 - 2013: We built the bilingual school
Teacher strikes in Honduras are a common occurrence. We had to consider the fact that only 58% of primary school-age students reach the fifth grade. Additionally, kids in Honduras, on average, were only attending approximately 78 days out of 200 due to strikes. So, we prayerfully decided to take the bold step of opening our own school. If we were to give our children a first class education, we had to take education into our own hands. We also opened the school to the public as a way to help fund the costs of educating the kids we were raising.
2015: We built a second school
God blessed our work significantly, and as the demand in the community for a great Christian education grew, our school was bursting at the seams. This led to God's provision of a 3-acre lot nearby, where we built a larger bilingual school which opened in 2016. In early 2017, the original school was transformed into a Spanish School and between both schools, we now have over 600 students.
What's next? Join us!
We are always praying, in earnest, for God's plan to be revealed and as we do we will always continue our mission of rescuing, restoring and raising the Children of Honduras; because Jesus asks us to. We will do everything we can to raise these wonderful children to be responsible citizens and loving Christians in the country of Honduras.
Please pray for us and contact us if you would like to get involved!
