Who are the Lenca people?

  • 125,000 indigenous people living in the mountains of Honduras
  • Most are subsistent level farmers
  • They hold animistic [belief that nature has a soul] and Catholic beliefs
  • The Lenca people are under-reached by the gospel which means more than 2% but less than 5% are evangelized and there is very limited Baptist work to the Lenca
