HONDURAS – Lutheran Church–Canada’s (LCC) missionary work in Honduras continues to bear fruit. Missionary Douglas Aguilar reports that, this August, a group of girls was received into LCC’s congregation in the city of Olanchito through holy baptism.

“Praise be to our God!” writes Rev. Aguilar. “Five young girls were baptized and received by the Saviour Jesus Christ” during a service held August 5, 2012. The parents were reportedly overjoyed to celebrate with their daughters the day of their baptism.

The baptisms follow weeks of Bible studies with the children’s families on the blessings conferred by God through His means of grace. “For my part,” Rev. Agular says, “I am very happy and grateful to God for the impact the Gospel of Jesus Christ has had in the lives of these families.”

Rev. Douglas Aguilar is a pastor to the congregation in Olanchito and surrounding villages in Honduras as part of LCC’s Mission Cristiana en Honduras (Christian Mission in Honduras).
