Challenges for Prayer

Missions vision has grown significantly in the past decade. There are now several mission agencies, both denominational and interdenominational, that train and send cross-cultural workers. Some examples: YWAM, Puerto al Mundo, Baptists, El Cordero and the Council of Evangelical Churches. Pray for the whole Honduran Church to gain a greater vision for outreach and mission.

Foreign mission agencies can still play a key role in training and development, specialized ministries and in holistic projects, for which there are many openings. Pray for humble sensitivity and for a legacy of raising up and empowering Honduran leadership and initiatives. The largest agencies are: CCCI, WGM, CAMI, CB/CMML, CCCC, BIM.
