Reaching the People of
HONDURAS for CHRIST
Thank you so very much for prayerfully considering our ministry. Currently we are working with four missionary families in the country of Honduras. Each missionary is in need of co-labors, whether it is an assistance pastor, youth pastor, teacher, or someone to help with the day to day maintenance and activities, your help is needed.
Serve: Missionaries have been ministering for many years. At that beginning many ministries were centered in the capital city of Tegulcigapa. Today missionaries in many of the cities outside the capital area. Churches have been planted in many of the Departamentos” of the country.
Today the missionary churches are training nationals in their Bible Institutes and Christian schools, The trained national pastors will go and start new churches. There is still much work to be done and laborers are needed for this harvest field.

FACTS: With its tall mountains, lush rain forests, and tropical climate, Honduras is the second largest nation in Central America. Named for the deep waters near its coastlines, the nation is home to one of the last tropical rain forests in North America. The indigenous peoples of Honduras were defeated by the Spanish in 1538, and the nation gained its independence in 1821. As a result of political unrest across Central America, Honduras formed a relationship with the United States, causing resentment among their neighbors, such as El Salvador. Honduras is governed by a democratic civilian government with two political parties: Liberales and Nacionalistas.
Honduras is the second poorest nation in Central America (Nicaragua) and one of the poorest in the Western Hemisphere. Fifty-four percent of the population, campesinos, work in agriculture, yet one-third of the people are unemployed and 65% live below the poverty line. Hondurans sometimes refer to their nation as machista (macho, sexist) because men are viewed as more important by society.
About 95% of the population claim Christianity, and Roman Catholicism is the largest segment. The number of evangelical Christians has increased dramatically since the 1960’s, and research has found that about 36% of the population agrees with evangelical beliefs. The biggest problems facing the Church are socio-economic issues, such as children at risk, HIV/AIDS, and gang violence. More than half of the population are children, and the streets are full of orphans and unwanted children who get pulled into the gang or sex trade lifestyle out of desperation. Pray that the Church and other ministries will reach out to these desperate children and that God would use His people to comfort those hurting across Honduras < – More- >
