What’s Happening In Honduras?

March 3, 2018
It’s now been 4 months since we stepped foot in Honduras for the very ever La Fiesta De Los Suenos (Dream On: Party). To say that the event was a complete success would be an understatement. Over the 2 day event we saw over 10,000 people in attendance and over 2,000 people gave their lives to Jesus. We saw dozens of miracles, we put on a youth conference and we did several TV and Radio gigs as well. Our team of 12 had an experience that will last a lifetime.

Since the party, we’ve received so many testimonies and stories of the way God has changed the people of Honduras. With over two-thirds of the population under the age of 25, it was our dream to truly change this next generation in Honduras. At these night worship experiences, the Hondurans got to experience God in a new way and started to dream again. It’s hard for many of us in a first world country to understand the depth of that statement. Nevertheless, when your entire world is surrounded by poverty on every level, it’s easy to understand where the lack of dreams and purposes comes from.

After making the announcement this week that we will be coming back to Honduras in November to put on an even bigger Dream On Party, we thought it was only fitting to share a little more about what God has done to some since last year’s party!

This video gets us excited because it is of a 10 year old boy named Joel Alfaro. Joel at a very young age has a dream of becoming a worship leader and to lead people in worship on a large stage. One of the cool things about the Dream On Party was we were able to make dream’s like Joel’s come true! Joel lead a worship song at the Dream On Party in front of thousands of people and quite frankly left everyone amazed. What a talented young boy!  This video above is a music video recently shot with Joel. It is so amazing to see people like Joel pursue their dreams in life….especially as a result of everything we are doing here at Dream On.

This couple above had been asking the Lord for the past 5 years to allow them to get pregnant. This couple attended the Dream On Party and reiterated to God their dream to have a child. Since then they have found out they are are expecting!

On top of these testimonies Dream on has helped plant churches and feeding programs in these 5 cities in Honduras: Choloma, San Pedro Sula , Villanueva, yojoa, Tegucigalpa.

Dream On Party: Travel Day

November 14, 2017
Leaving at 3am from anywhere for anything is always exhausting… except for Jordan the robot.

The team met up at the church, and left at 3am to head towards the Detroit airport. We had stacked all of the suitcases in the back of the van, so we hoped the people sitting in the back didn’t get hit in the head if we jammed on the breaks… but anything is possible when Jordan is driving 🙂 We arrive at the Detroit airport in ample time, but a few of the team got stuck in security. To many snacks, cameras, computers, and other tech were some of the security culprits… we all made the first flight and landed in Houston. When we landed it was breakfast time, and what sounds better for breakfast then panda express? Absolutely, we ate Chinese for bfast.

We all loaded up for the last leg of the journey that day, and still wished that Spirit air gave out peanuts on the flight. Jordan and Ben recorded a podcast with Pastor Daniel at 30,000 ft in the air. When we landed Pastor Daniel got stopped going through security, and he just happened to have a suitcase full of glow sticks, to which he couldn’t explain in spanish to the security lady what they were… We eventually all leave the airport with pastor Wilmer, and pick some kids up, pack them all in the van and take them to school. The team then went to a local radio station and were interviewed for the Dream On Party coming up the next day. After the interviews, Jesus healed a mans back outside! Jesus is always with us wherever we go… We then walked through a 10,000 member church, and then headed back to the hotel. Later on that night, we went to the grounds where the meetings would be held Friday and Saturday, and the team was blown away by the setup. We believe in doing everything with excellence at Dream On, and this was just the beginning on something amazing…

T-Minus 40 Days

September 25, 2017
Believe it or not we will be loading a plane in under 40 days to put on our very first Dream On Party (La Gran Fiesta De Los Suenos) in San Pedro Sula Honduras. For those who don’t know this has been a dream of Ben and I (as well as the rest of our team) for many years. I must admit the task at times as felt impossible but we all know what God has to say about the impossible. See, it is very easy to allow your mind to accept normal. It certainly is not normal for 2 kids in their 20’s to plan a youth crusade for 10,000 people in another country. I mean how many of those do you know?  But the life of a dreamer, recognizes and accepts that with God literally NOTHING is impossible. This journey has taught us a deeper understanding of God’s dreams and purposes in our lives, his provision and his love for us.

I fully believe that the hardest step of a dreamer is the next one. It’s easy to look back and see how easy the previous ones were, because you know the outcome. It’s the next step that truly defines your faith and your life as a dreamer. Ben and I had absolutely no clue how Honduras would turn out. In fact our original vision for it was significantly smaller than what it is turning out to be. But when you serve a BIG God, were learning that our big dreams are often small in the eyes of a BIG God.

What Next?

With just under 40 days till we leave, WE NEED YOUR HELP! We are believing God to bring 100 mission balls. We have currently raised 45 balls and are nearly half way to our goal. One ball is just $10 and has the gospel written all over them. They are super cool and let me tell you, a soccer ball is one of the best toys a kid can have in Honduras. Don’t believe me, watch this video as it shows the kids playing with a deflated kick ball. We also are looking to give away some bikes, t-shirts, glow sticks and more. We also have 2 suitcases full of tennis shoes that someone graciously donated. Over 200 brand new pairs of shoes! I’m asking you to prayerfully consider your next step. It might not be throwing a huge party for 10,000 kids in the murder capital of the world. But your next step is important to God. It might be donating $10 for a soccer ball, donating a bike or whatever it might be.  The important thing is that you are actually taking your next step.

Dream On Party

August 10, 2017

What Is The Dream On Party?

Dream On Global is sponsoring the very first La Fiesta De Los Suenos (Dream On Party) 2017 in San Pedro Sula Honduras. This event will be held on November 3rd and 4th 2017. Honduras as a country faces many challenges from poverty, drugs and single home families. Because of this the majority of the people have settled to live very substandard lives. The good news is that 65% of the population is under the age of 25 and that with your assistance we can help change Honduras through just one generation.

How Can I Help?

We can’t do this event without your help! Prayerfully consider giving to help support our vision of empowering the young people of San Pedro Sula Honduras to pursue God’s dreams for their lives.

Honduras (Planning Trip) Day #2

August 10, 2017
We woke up with great anticipation for the day, because we knew we would be seeing a lot of San Pedro Sula today. I totally wish I could drink orange juice all day long down here if it wouldn’t give me an ulcer, because it’s just so good!

Honduras (Planning Trip) Day #1

August 4, 2017
Jordan and I’s adventure started out by arriving at a generous friends house late Thursday night, to spend the night before waking up before the roosters as we had to fly out of Detroit. When we arrived our friend informed us that everyone was asleep so be very quiet… it seemed like every square inch of the house creaked as we were trying to be quiet and I accidentally slammed a door… great start to the trip 🙂 If you don’t know me, I need at least 8 hours of sleep to function, unlike Jordan who is robot-esque and doesn’t need sleep. So… getting up at 3am is rough for me, but Jordan took it like a pro! All the way to the airport, we kept saying that we were probably to early, but when we arrived there was a super long line to get through security. We got through in time, and boarded the plane to head to Houston. When we arrived in Houston they were boarding our connecting flight already. We ran to Chick-Fil-e real quick to grab breakfast… boarded the plane for Honduras. Every time I bring someone new to Honduras, I am always a little nervous just because I am unsure of how they will adapt. Jordan crushed it… beard and all! To shorten our first days adventure, I have put the day in a short time lapse below. Enjoy.

Schedule – August 4, 2017

  • 3:00 am Woke up, felt terrible, drove to the airport, why are there so many people up this early?
  • 7:30 am Boarded plane for Houston, wait there’s a lucky seat on this plane that gets 5,000 free miles? No free peanuts… bummer
  • 10:00 am Arrive in Houston, Chick-Fil-e here we come, you have a YouTube page?
  • 10:30 am Leave for San Pedro Sula, Jordan wins the lucky seat!
  • 12:30 Suppose to be on the ground by now. Still circling the airport. Sittin the tarmac now. Still sitting on the tarmac. Still sitting on the tarmac.
  • 1:30 Going through customs. Is that guy holding a machine gun?
  • 1:45 Pastor Wimer’s driving is something special… I think Jordan just peed himself.
  • 2:15 Lunch at the hotel. Ah, peace and quiet for lunch. Nevermind, karaoke in the afternoon?
  • 4:00 Pastor Wilmer tells me in preaching tonight
  • 5:00 Jordan is editing videos like a mad man… I’m prepping for tonight
  • 7:00 God always shows up when He is bragged on… He loves to show up and show off. Man, there are great things in store for Honduras. Chile’s anyone?
