World Vision is reaching out to the children of Honduras in churches, youth groups and in Peace Clubs to interact in a safe way – using Christian principles of choosing kindness and empathy over violence – and encouraging children to stay in school instead of dropping out to live on the streets.

“We use to live in Tegucigalpa. But I felt in my heart, a call from God to move into this community. Because with His help, we knew that we could change lives.” Read how God called two pastors to reach at-risk youth in Honduras.

The Promised Land

Ramon & Fanny


Sabanagrande is a small town located in the south region of Honduras. The people who live there are hard-working people. They are grateful that God’s love is present in their community. Roman Bueso and his Wife Fanny Zambrano have been living in Sabanagrande for more than 20 years. They both serve as pastors at the Amor Viviente Church, which translated means, ‘living love church. “Teaching Gods love to the youth and kids has brought peace to each person in the community,” says Pastor Roman.

A few years ago, things were different in the community. Violence and bullying surrounded the school environments, gangs and other groups started to organize in the neighborhoods, recruiting vulnerable teenagers who didn’t find love or acceptance at home. “We use to live in Tegucigalpa. But I felt in my heart, a call from God to move into this community. Because with His help, we knew that we could change lives,” Pastor Roman remembers. He decided to serve God and become a pastor when he was 35 years old.

Prayer Requests

  • Please pray for safety of staff and workshop participants. Although workshops are scheduled for neutral locations to avoid travel through areas held by opposing gangs, pervasive violence is always a concern. Workshops can involve Church leaders, parents and schoolteachers, youth leaders and youth.

  • Please pray for our work among churches of several denominations, that differing structures and doctrines won’t impede the adoption of engaging and loving child discipleship ministries.

  • Please pray for God's continued protection for children and youth in communities where we work and that He will guide them to make wise choices to help keep them out of gangs.
