Project ID: HN0001-65006
The Honduras Mission is served by a Nicaraguan missionary pastor and a faithful Honduran deacon, who formerly was trained and served as a pastor.
In La Paz, Missionary Pastor Junior Martinez hosted a small community of believers in his garage. The congregation grew to the point that it needed a larger worship space. As a result, a building program that included a multi-purpose building, worship facility, and parsonage began. Finishing touches to the buildings are nearly complete, with the dedication of the new facilities scheduled for early 2022.
Pastor Martinez travels 90 kilometers every other week to bring Word and Sacrament to a church plant in the national capital, Comayagüela. There, Deacon Tulio leads weekly Christian education classes and does community outreach. Additionally, regular Bible classes and worship have begun in Choluteca, where the church already owns a worship facility. Pastor Martinez is assisted by a young man desiring a seminary education.
We pray the Lord will provide more Honduran workers for the harvest fields to ensure the future of the Lutheran church in Honduras.
