Current Ministry Cristo Salva (Jesus Christ Saves) is in the Santa Barbara district, two hours from San Pedro Sula airport. The small towns of Las Varas and Macuelizo serve as a ministry hub to the many outlying towns and villages.
The mission of Cristo Salva, which began in 1990, is to serve the people of Honduras by demonstrating the Gospel in the most practical terms to the hurting and needy:
home-to-home visits food, clothing, family care kits (shampoo, personal hygiene items, etc.), hats, bandanas, and prayer.
children’s sponsorships school uniforms, shoes, backpacks & school supplies
local church assistance with attendance, resources, talents and fellowship, pastoral training, workshops, mentors, and worship leaders’ seminars, Spanish Sunday school material, Spanish Bibles and tracts.
community participation in local building projects, providing Christian programming for a local TV station, hiring local men and women for projects and training them for “cottage industries” that help them earn money to support their families; three staffers teach at Morning Star Bilingual School in Sula.
health and well-being free medical and dental clinics in Macuelizo and with mobile clinics in surrounding villages; children’s vitamins, prenatalcare, diet education,sanitation training, school dental care and care kits.
