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 

 

Lenca People

 

EBA Goals

  • Start 340 house churches in 1,196 villages 
  • Build into the DNA that each house church is responsible to start other house churches
  • Our desire is “to teach the Lenca how to fish rather than give them fish”

EBA Strategy

  • Prayer
  • Evangelism/church planting
  •  Gospel saturation
  • Discipleship/leadership training
  • Meeting Human Need
