The Strongest Weapon
In a village near La Ceiba, a dangerous gang ruled the streets—raping, killing, and intimidating people into paying a protection tax. An MTW missionary and a national pastor boldly reached out to the gang with friendship and the gospel. After watching three members become Christians, the gang leader accepted Christ and left the gang. This previously violent young man paced the streets of his village, showing people that he now carried a Bible as his weapon instead of a gun.
Infused with Mercy
In La Ceiba, we’re planting Honduran-run churches and discipling Honduran pastors. In conjunction with our church-planting efforts, we’ve built two medical clinics to provide low-cost health care along with the message of Jesus. We also run a drop-in center that ministers to several dozen boys, serving their physical needs and allowing them to experience a healthy family life. Since teen pregnancy is a major issue, we founded a home for single mothers to help them support themselves and their children. A seminary is under construction, and plans are underway to expand our church planting to other cities.
