In different regions of Honduras, the gangs are demanding money as “war tax”, in return for not destroying people’s businesses
In different regions of Honduras, the gangs are demanding money as “war tax”, in return for not destroying people’s businesses. To make sure that people will surrender to their demands, gangs kill anyone who does not pay. In other words, if they do not pay, they pay with their lives. The violence all over this country is evident as gangs with the intention of controlling specific neighborhoods of Tegucigalpa and other cities close off entire neighborhoods. Hard to live in a country where death and chaos are present every day. Foreign aid, government programs, police and military presence cannot provide any kind of hope to the eight million people. Thousands of people are living without the security of eternity and many are dying without Christ in their hearts. It is in this context of violence, that as a ministry we have a tremendous responsibility to spread the message of hope in Christ to many people as possible.
. Praise the Lord Melvin and Ernesto keep expanding the number of outlets broadcasting our programs. Currently, through 173 radio stations, peoples’ lives are transform as the Holy Spirit touch their hearts. Our conviction is that as people come to Christ, their lives will be instruments used by God to reach others with the Gospel. That is the case with Mauricio, who after listening our programs through a local Christian radio station in 1999, he accepted Christ as his personal savior. As a result of his decision to follow Christ, he felt the need to grow in his spiritual life, so he started to attend a local church and he also requested the Bible studies through correspondence that were offered at the end of our programs. As he grew in his spiritual life, he decided to commit his life to serve as a pastor. Recently he contacted our missionary Melvin Zelaya to request the Bible studies through correspondence that he received 17 years ago. His desire is to use this material to disciple new believers in the church that he is pastoring in the town of Siguatepeque, and in other two congregations that his planting in some rural areas near the town where he lives. Melvin visited and provided with the Bible courses and with CD’s with our programs. A radio program became the instrument that God used to save and transform Mauricio’s life. Now Mauricio has become a useful instrument to bring the message of hope in Christ to people who are living in despair in Honduras.
