Honduras is among the most violent countries in the world. In 2012, Father Alexis Zuniga, S.T., a native of Honduras, asked if he might return to his home country as a missionary to help break the cycle of violence.
Because of you, we are able to support Father Alexis and his efforts to provide the youth of Honduras with an example of love and joy that makes the false camaraderie of street life pale by comparison. This is the work of a missionary…this is how we make a difference!
He hopes to replace the allure of gang life with the joy of the gospel life. As he shares, “Perhaps I can be an agent of conversion among the gang-bangers.” He is passionate about preventing more deaths of innocent men, women and children. During his time ministering in Honduras, Father Alexis has seen horrible tragedies. But when he speaks about his work, about the people he is serving, there is a feeling greater than despair within him — he is filled with hope.
