Honduras

     Honduras is a beautiful country located in Central America.  The country is bordered to the west by Guatemala, to the southwest by El Salvador, to the southeast by Nicaragua, to the south by the Pacific Ocean at the Gulf of Fonseca, and to the north by the Gulf of Honduras, a large inlet of the Caribbean Sea.  Its size is just over 112,000 km2 with an estimated population of almost eight million. Its capital is Tegucigalpa.  Its northern portions are part of the Western Caribbean Zone.

     The Lord has given us a love for this country and the people of God who live there.  Every time we go there, we are received with open arms and a true genuine love.  The Honduran people are a humble people, but at the same time have a tremendous hunger for the things of God and are fiercely devoted to Him.  We started going to Honduras by Divine Commission in the year 2001. Since that year, we have been going there almost year after year to water the seeds that the LORD has allowed me to plant there.  Much fruit has come forth for His glory from the seeds that have been planted in the Northern part of Honduras.

     In the past, we have also been to the southern part of Honduras to the city of Comayagua near the Capital of Tegucigalpa, to work with a small number of churches there as well.  We would like to go back there in the future to continue to help them in the work they are trying to do there. If God deals with you about helping with this mission field please contact us, or you can make a donation using Paypal right on this website in the Donate page.  I want to thank those of you who continue to support us financially as well as with your prayers.  Without you, we would not be able to do the things that we do.  You have a part in all the souls that we win for the Kingdom of God, as well as all the people that we help.  May the Father of Lights continue to bless you and protect you in all your ways in the days to come.

In Christ,

Augusto Perez

HONDURAS MISSION TRIP 2017

Since my new birth experience, I have always been one to move by the Holy Spirit. There are not many decisions that I make without being led by the Spirit of the LORD.  Anytime that I have done something without consulting Him, bad things have happened. I said that because of what I am about to share.  Since late 2016 I began to feel the need to go back to Honduras.  I would have liked to go to Cuba since I have not been there in a while and needed to check in the progress of the printing and distribution or our books in throughout the Island.  However, I did not feel the release.  Hopefully things will change regarding Cuba sometime soon. 

I wrote to the Apostles of the church I work with there in Honduras, and shared with them my desire to go there in March. I quickly received a message back from them telling me that March would work well, and for me to come on.  I quickly purchased the roundtrip airline ticket to go to Honduras in February and began to make plans accordingly. Late in the month of March, I went back to the beautiful nation of Honduras to continue the work that we have been doing there since the year 2001.  

I drove down to Miami, Florida and spent the night there until the next day when I took the flight from Miami to San Pedro Sula Airport in Honduras where they were waiting for me. I spent the duration of my time in Honduras in the MUNA facilities.  I want to express my gratitude to all of you who interceded and prayed for me during this mission trip, and who helped me financially to go there.  Without you, we would not be able to do the work that we are doing.  Thank you.

On Wednesday morning after an early breakfast I was picked up and taken to the Public School Patria.  At 8 am the young people started coming into our classroom and by the time they all had come in, we had around 150 students.  The topic assigned to me to share with them was moral and ethical values.  We talked to the students for a while and then asked them if anyone present had an experience with God that they wanted to share with the rest of the students.  A girl came up and shared the experience that she had with Jesus Christ.  She was moved to tears as she shared her story.  I could tell her story impacted those who were present.

After she was finished with her testimony, we asked those students who wanted prayer to come forward.  Many of the students came forward repenting and accepting the LORD Jesus Christ as their Savior.  There was one girl who was demonized and started to manifest as I was talking to her.  She had been sexually abused and refused to forgive the person who did it.  Finally, after much prayer the Holy Spirit broke through and she received her deliverance as she burst into tears and forgave the person who had done it.  Afterwards, you could see the change in her countenance as she walked out of the meeting.  What a mighty God we serve.

      

       

   

  

   

   

On Wednesday night we went to preach to the city of Progreso to the Church pastored by Magdiel and Lilian Aranda.  When we first started going there back several years ago, they were under a tent on a piece of land.  We had many good meetings there where the LORD did many marvelous things.  Now they have a beautiful building on a large piece of property.  We preached the gospel of the kingdom and then ministered the power of God to the people there.  Many of the people that were there received what they needed from the hand of the LORD. 

 

 

 

 

 

On Thursday night we went to San Pedro Sula with Ezequiel and Alba Hernandez to minister in their church Eagles on the Rock. I spoke into their lives before the meeting and shared some things with them that felt I needed to share. Wnen we got to the church, the building was packed wall to wall.  From the moment we arrrived there, I knew that this night was going to be special.  As Ezequiel started playing his guitar and ministering in music, the presence of God started to descend.  It reminded me of the days when my wife and I started a church in Miami, Florida and I used to play the guitar and lead in worship the same way.  This couple really reminded me of the old days in Miami.

We shared a now word from God as the Spirit of the LORD moved like a thunderbolt in our midst.  I got so caught up in the spirt of the LORD that I totally forgot to take photos of what was going on that night.  As we began to minister to the people, there were multiple healings and miracles that took place in our midst.  Also, some deliverance took place that night, and others were filled with the Holy Spirit.  The pastor wanted me to come back on Sunday to minister for them, but my schedule for that Sunday was already filled.  Surely, this was a night to remember. Sorry, no photos.

On Friday morning I was picked up at 7 am in the morning to go minister to the employees of Chicken Lima where my friends Martin and Rosario Cruz are the owners.  We shared a word from the LORD with them, prayed for the employess and released them to go to work that morning. 

 

Later on Friday morning we went to Hefziba's Children's Diner and we had lunch with them there. We took three bags of goodies to the children and they were so happy and so grateful about that. They are fed well and taken care of there at the Center, but they do not get any special treats or sweets. I just felt like doing this for them and put a smile on their faces. It takes so little to put a smile on the faces of these precious children.  Daniel (brother who drove me) and I played for a while with the children before lunch.  God is doing something beautiful in Honduras. 

 

 

 

On Friday Afternoon we were asked to minister to the teachers of Sunshine School in MUNA.  We gathered with a number of the teachers and talked to to them about several topics related to their work with children, attitudes and excellence.

 

On Friday night we were with Pastor Elias and Abbie Rodriguez in their church Piedras Vivas.  During the worship service I began to feel a very soft sweet moving of the Holy Spirit as I began to receive the message for that evening. The  message He gave me was on the topic of the Bridegrom and the Bride. As I was delivering the message, the Presence of the LORD came upon me so strong that I choked up, and was not able to speak for a few moments.  It was such an intimate moment with the Spirit of the LORD that I forgot to take photos of the meeting that night.  Much ministry took place that evening and many received a mighty touch from the LORD.  Sorry, no photos.

On Saturday night we went to Hefziba Church in Colonia Flores De Oriente, one of the poorest areas in Northern Honduras.  This is the same place we went to for the first time in 2011 (See Honduras Mission Trip 2011) whenever they had started to witness to the people there.  Back then there was no church built there yet, as we gathered in a small rustic concrete block building to minister to the people.  Today they have built a nice church facility, as well as a dining room to feed the children. Last time when I was there I was told that they need a breakthrough in the area of the baptism of the Holy Spirit and we ministered on how to receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit and many were filled with His Spirit.

This time around, while talking to the pastor I found out that many in the church needed deliverance from various oppressions and strongholds. I prayed about it and decided to minister on the topic of deliverance on that night.  There was a strong presence of God throughout the service as we began to minister deliverance to the people.  When I asked for those who needed deliverance to come forward, the power of the Most Hight came down very strong on all that came forward and most of them received deliverance.  

Many of them went down under the power of God as they were overwhelmed by the Spirit and set free from strongholds.  Many were not able to stay on their feet.  Several people came forward suffering from symptoms that we had called out, including a couple of young people who were being attacked by the spirit of suicide.  We prayed for them, as well as everyone that was in need. Many received deliverance from the hand of the LORD on that evening, as the spirit of deliverance and Shalom moved upon those who were present.

 

  

  

    

  

 

 

On Sunday morning we ministered at MUNA General Assembly with all their daughter churches in attendance. That morning we delivered a prophetic warning message regarding the times that we are in. Afterwards, an invitation was given for those that needed prayer to come forward. Many came forward crying as the LORD moved upon His people in a wonderful way. Several were healed, many others were touched by the power of God.  The spirit of prophecy was moving strong in the meeting that morning.  Many of the words were confirmed afterwards.

 

 

 

 

We traveled on Sunday night to Villanueva and ministered in the church there where Jacobo Coello is the pastor.  The people were ready to receive from God as we delivered a word of warning from Heaven.  Those who received the word, came forward for prayer.  We called the intercessors of the house to come forward and beging to intercede.  As the intercessors began to intercede the presence of the LORD came down on that place very strong as the people began to come to the front to receive ministry.

Many were saved; others were healed by the power of God while others were delivered from demonic oppression.  Many of the people that came up to receive prayer were ministered to by the Holy Spirit in a very special way.  There was a wonderful move of the Spirit that took place on that night. The pastor shared with us afterwards during dinner what an incredible presence of God had come into the service on that night after the sharing of the Word.  Surely, our Heavenly Father was glorified on that night.  Blessed be the name of the LORD Jesus Christ.

      

                               

                                  

  

  

On Monday morning we went to Instituto Lima to minister to the students there on the topic of moral values and professional ethics.  This was the first time that we have been allowed to go into this school, so I did not know what to expect.  When we first arrived, we were taken to an office where a man asked us questions about religion and what we were going to be talking to the students about.  I understand their being concerned about who goes in to talk to the students, however I knew that it was not going to go as well as with the Instituto Patria; the other school where we have ministered in for the last few years.  The man was present for most of the time that we were sharing with the students.

At first, there was a resistance to us being there with the students.  However, as we began to talk to them about real life issues I felt the resistance begin to melt away.  After we had shared with the students for about 30 minutes, I prayed for them.  They were very respectful and all bowed their heads as I prayed.  I then proceeded to pray for each one of them individually right where they were sitting, as I knew that they were not going to stand up and come to the front to be prayed for.  Many of them were visibly touched.  I felt that we accomplished what were were supposed to that morning.  God opened this door in order to touch the lives of those students. I am glad we were able to do it.

 

 

Finally on Tuesday morning we ministered to the students of Sonshine School in MUNA.  We did a couple of songs for them from our CD. Roger who has a ministry of mime and used to do work with the young people interepreted the songs. He really did a great job, although he was a bit out of practice, as was I.  We then talked to them about their need to live moral lifes before the LORD and some of the things that they need to watch for in their lives.  We asked them questions and interacted with them throughout the meeting.  As the students participated in the question and answer session and answered the questions successfully, we gave them a CD.  The Spirit of the LORD moved upon the students that morning.
