These teams serve some of the poorest people in Honduras in their own neighborhoods. Our services include giving medical, dental and optical care, providing concrete floors to families that live on dirt floors, washing children’s hair, and evangelism. For many, this is the only access to medical care that they have. WGO’s goal through these teams is to tell people the Gospel of Jesus Christ and make disciples through our partner Honduran churches. Each morning the team travels by school bus to the church where they will serve. Our teams first meet the physical needs of the people, then use the opportunity that God provides in those moments to share the Gospel. WGO has developed relationships with more than 250 local Honduran churches. These churches partner with WGO by facilitating the ministry in their building for 2 days once a year. Some team members are medical professionals- physicians, dentists, optometrists, chiropractors, nurses, physician assistants and other trained medical personnel- although this is not a requirement. Most team members do not have any medical training, but serve as support people assisting in the different areas. WGO also has Honduran medical personnel on site working with the teams. In advance of their trip, team members are informed of the needed medications and supplies to bring.

Team members stay in WGO's Mission House in Tegucigalpa, constructed in 2009, that can house up to 80 team members. Accommodations at the Mission House are clean with spacious common areas for dining, meetings, relaxing and fellowship. Sleeping arrangements are comfortable with bunk beds in the men’s and women’s bedrooms. Each bedroom can accommodate up to 18 people and each is adjoined to a bathroom with hot and cold water, showers and toilet facilities.
