Help our kids experience a summer mission trip

With your help, students from Mount Dora Christian Academy & Children’s Home can have a life-changing experience this summer. Several students have signed up to participate in a trip to Honduras through Torch Missions.
Torch Missions logoParticipating students will have a tiring but rewarding trip. They will build houses for the poor, feed the hungry, participate in medical ministries, and share the Gospel with children. Honduras is a poor Central American nation where thousands live homeless on the streets or in unsafe makeshift housing. During the past 20 years, Torch Missions has built more than 8,000 homes, while also operating medical and dental clinics, distributing clothes, conducting VBS and Bible studies, and more.
 For students, a short-term mission trip can be an experience they never forget.
 “Mission trips can make a life-changing difference for our students,” said Dr. Brad Moser, head of school. “We desire to be a blessing to those we serve, and I know that we will be equally as blessed.”
Each student must raise $1,500 to cover their travel and other expenses. Your donation to this cause will benefit both our students and the poor and needy in Honduras.
Your donations can also help in other ways:

  • A cargo container of food that will provide thousands of meals for Hondurans costs only $1,800.
  • A new home can be built in Honduras for only $1,550.
Simply click the “Donate” button to make your gift to this worthwhile cause. You may also mail donations to Mount Dora Christian Academy & Children’s Home, c/o Development Office, 301 W. 13th Avenue, Mount Dora, FL 32757. Please note on your check that it is for the Honduras Mission Trip.

Honor and Memorial Gifts

We all know someone special, a person whose life has been an inspiration for our very own. Sometimes it is difficult to repay a person for his or her example to us. However, there is an excellent way to honor that person. Because this person has meant so much to you, you can pay tribute to them with an Honor or Memorial Gift to the Children’s Home. A letter of acknowledgement will be sent to the person or family advising them of the gift (the gift amount is not disclosed).
