Travelers come to Utila Honduras from all corners of the world: Europe, Israel, Australian, South America, Canada, and the U.S. for scuba diving and to party. Some stay for weeks, others years. Seek the Lamb began an outreach on this Western Caribbean Island to these travelers and the native Utilians in 2011 by building the Rio Coco Cafe on a property strategically located between four dive schools.
We are reaching them through hospitality and a cup of good coffee. Travelers love to talk and the conversations go deep at the Rio Coco Cafe. Many have been touched over the years through the love shown by our team.
Seek the Lamb purchased this property in 2014 and through donations and café sales have been able to renovate the building as well as add two bedrooms, an expanded service area, and a downstairs kitchen. This renovation opens more opportunities for our ministry to reach “the world” that comes to Utila.
Utila is located in the SW corner of the Caribbean Sea, 18 miles offshore from La Ceiba Honduras. This former pirate stronghold and English colony is a mecca for scuba divers. Michael and Laura Bagby have been visiting the island since 1989, and Seek the Lamb now has the opportunity for a special adventure.
We are serving great coffee in an effort to help fund our school project along the Rio Coco (the border between Honduras and Nicaragua) and as an open door for conversations about the things in life that are important to us.
