HondurasCountry Overview
Honduras is a Latin American country slightly larger than Tennessee. Honduras is known for producing natural resources like minerals, fruit, coffee, and sugar cane. Its borders touch the Caribbean Sea and a shorter strip of the Pacific Ocean. Honduras also suffers from the world’s highest murder rate, due in large part to gang activity. It is one of the poorest countries in the Western hemisphere with a high emigration rate to the United States.

Equipping Honduran pastors to rightly handle the Word of truth will strengthen the Honduran church and help the gospel speak to societal issues.

Training History & Opportunity
The first Honduras group of thirteen pastors graduated from the Training National Trainers program in July 2016 and have already trained over 500 other pastors and church leaders. Currently, one pastor, Jorge Guillen, helps LRI’s Latin America Director Patricio Paredes train in Guatemala.

We will continue training with several passionate and gifted leaders, “Mentor Trainers”, who will be responsible for expanding training in Honduras and beyond. This advanced training will deepen the Mentor Trainers’ abilities in the Scriptures as well as train them in administrative components necessary for igniting a training movement in their country.

Prayer Requests

  • Praise God for the wonderful multiplication we saw by the end of 4 years there. An estimated 500 pastors or church leaders being trained in 2nd- and 3rd-generation training through those 13 men.
  • Pray that the denomination will continue to take more and more ownership of the training and help fund the expenses of some of the men who are sacrificing to go out and train others.
  • Pray that the Lord will give us and the denomination a clear vision of the necessary steps ahead so that the training in Honduras will become a movement, strengthening pastors and churches throughout the country and beyond.
  • Pray that the Lord will encourage churches to partner with us to continue the work in Honduras and elsewhere in Latin America.
