Pastor Armando Flores officiates in the Great Commission Latin America (GCLA) church of Comayagua and hopes to develop the community’s economy through compassion projects.
Comayagua is a city in Honduras, located about 50 miles northwest of Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras. Comayagua is well-known for its wealth of Spanish colonial architecture, but Comayagua is also one of the poorest places in Latin America. Two-thirds of its population lives below the poverty line and almost half survive under the extreme poverty level.
Pastor Armando aims to provide economic opportunities for the community. Since the GCLA church has a constructing ministry and has been building houses in the local villages, Armando intends to start a school which will train the local community in carpentry.
Armando believes that education in carpentry will ensure the community’s gradual economic growth. He is confident that partnerships with different mission teams will enable him to access and create construction projects which will ultimately provide carpentry jobs for the local communities.
