Faith Story

Isaac Almendarez was born into a family deeply rooted in the Christian faith and missionary work. His parents, Victor Almendarez and Virgilia Chávez, were a living example to him of service and dedication to God. Inspired by their legacy, Isaac and his wife Dulce Rodríguez have decided to follow in their parents' footsteps, accepting Jesus' call to serve in His church and community.

From a young age, Isaac felt God's call in his life and dedicated himself to cultivating a deep relationship with Him. This relationship manifested in his service to the church, where he has held important roles as youth leader and worship ministry director. His passion for God and his desire to share the gospel are shared by his wife, and both have been involved in various community service actions, where they have been an example of love and generosity.

Isaac and Dulce have seen God's transformative power in their lives and in the lives of those they have served, and they move forward with the certainty that God has a purpose for them which they trust to achieve through their ministry with Missions Door.


Isaac graduated as an Industrial Engineer from the University of Honduras and is currently pursuing a Master's degree in Project Formulation, Management, and Evaluation at the Technological University of Honduras. Dulce, also an industrial engineer graduated from the University of Honduras, holds a Master's degree in Community Development from Yonsei University in South Korea.

Among poor but passionate people, family connections and festive occasions bring joy to life

Aside from the popular tourist spots of the Bay Islands and the Mayan ruins of Copán, the pristine Caribbean beauty of Honduras remains little known to international visitors.

But the country's exports are familiar abroad, especially in the United States. The natural resources of Honduras supply the trade of coffee, sugar cane and tropical fruit, as well as petroleum and textiles. Yet economic growth is limited by political instability and drug cartels that compromise security and development.

The people of Honduras show great passion for soccer and enjoy festive occasions with music and traditional punta dancing. They tend to keep their religious beliefs to themselves.

Extended families often live in close proximity. Hondurans welcome the company of friends and guests on the front porches of their homes, and communities gather on central plazas in most towns.

Your participation with Missions Door helps meet strategic and spiritual needs of communities in Honduras through pastoral training, leadership development, church planting, economic development, women's ministry and evangelism.

Cultural Snapshot

As Hondurans reenact the events of Holy Week, artists create elaborate sawdust carpets to decorate the trail where the figure of Jesus will walk to his crucifixion.

Faith Fact

Upper classes in Honduras predominantly adhere to Catholicism, while evangelical Protestant affiliation increases among the urban poor.
