One of the most exciting partnerships we have is our effort to reach the Lenca people with Gospel. There are over 200 Lenca villages in western Honduras that have no evangelical church of any denomination.  Its our goal for every Lenca village to have their own evangelical church.
Below are a few facts about the Lenca people:

  • Largest unreached people group in Honduras
  • >125,000 live in the high mountains of western Honduras
  • Unreached people group – less than 8% evangelical
  • Most are subsistence level farmers
  • One of the poorest and least educated people in Honduras
  • Poverty, malnutrition, alcoholism, and a fear of divine chastisement are common
  • In desperate need of a relationship with Jesus Christ
