MINISTERIO LA VOZ
Our Vision is to transform Honduras for good through Chrsit. How is that done? By winning a city. Puerto Cortes is the main deep water port for all of Central America. As the port goes, so goes the county. We are strategically placed in a position to gain influence and favor and change the culture. We are doing this through our vocational training center, MLV, where we train students in a variety of disciplines: English, sewing, mechanics, computers and welding. After seven years serving, our influence is growing. Our vision is to transform people to become agents of change in the culture through spiritual wholeness and vocational training. Our students are not only ambassadors for the kingdom, but community leaders and shakers who can hold their own. We are fighting against poverty, violence, drugs, corruption, abuse, and gangs with our most powerful weapon, love. Join us in the liberation of a country!
In the world of technology, we strive to be cutting edge. We train people in what is quickly becoming the game changer in Honduras. Every business and home is now installing computers and our students need to be proficient with new technology. Computers are now required in most jobs. We aim to not only train our students, but to lead Honduras into new technology.
English is the language of the business world, the port world, and missions. Our students learn not only how to speak English with proficiency, but also how to read, write, and translate. We are one of the best centers in Puerto Cortes for Language developement and our students have landed jobs in the call centers in San Pedro, on cruise ships, and even as English teachers in other institutions!
Our sewing department is run by our very own graduate, Rosa Castro. Sewing gives single mothers and others an opportunity to work out of their homes, or for women to train to work in one of the many factories in Choloma. Our department makes products to sell in our venta-de-carpa, yard bazaar. They learn design, cutting, and production.
Welding provides many opportunities for students to form their own small business and be entrepreneurs, work in the port or for a transportation company, or travel to other countries like the U.S. with work recruiters. We teach arc and mig welding with the vision of forming a specialized workshop, training in argon and other specialized techniques, and to be the premier welding shop in Central America.
Being centered in a port town, auto imports from the States is big business, making auto mechanics a thriving industry. Not only do students have the opportunity to work in a mechanic shop, but to work for the big port companies that surround us, like Dole, Chiquita, La Tela and more. Our students learn mechanics from the ground up, learning the basics all the way to advanced practice! We have a great teacher who aims to take the mechanic industry by storm and we support his dream!
