Mission

The Lamb Institute

The Lamb Institute is a Christ-centered, multifaceted ministry based in Tegucigalpa, Honduras that seeks to reach out to the world with the love of Jesus Christ. LAMB was founded in 1999 by lifelong missionary, Suzy McCall, as a training school for Hondurans called to world mission. Today, LAMB operates an elementary school with over 200 children in one of the most violent and poverty stricken areas of Tegucigalpa, a large youth outreach program, a growing microcredit program with over 300 small business owners, multiple community programs, and a residential home outside the city for over 60 abused and neglected children.

Holy Spirit supports an annual summer mission trip to serve the children who are cared for by the Lamb Institute in Honduras. These trips are intergenerational, while focusing on our youth. For general information, see their website at: www.lambinstitute.org.
