The United Methodist Mission in Honduras was started by the Board of Global Ministries in 1997 and is the only United Methodist church in Latin America. The National Evangelical Primitive Methodist Church of Guatemala has been part of the church’s mission since 1976 when the church provided humanitarian aid and relief teams after a devastating earthquake.
A small group of United Methodist bishops from the United States, along with staff from the Board of Global Ministries and United Methodist Communications, visited United Methodist churches in Honduras and Evangelical National Primitive Methodist churches in Guatemala, July 19-26. The mission education journey immersed participants in the work of the church in the two Central America countries.
