Since 1980, Fredy felt the desire to plant churches as far as the Lord would take him. He started on the north coast of Honduras, then reached the central zone and the Lenca zone. Right now, he is planting at La Paz department and the Comayagua mountains. Fredy’s passion is to carry the Gospel to those who have no hope. With 42 years of ministry and an unstoppable desire to plant churches, he continues to build churches for the honor and glory of the Lord. Fredy is currently the senior pastor of the Baptist Church in La Granja neighborhood in the city of La Paz. He has a team of planters who help him do the Father’s work. Fredy envision's a world where the Gospel may go everywhere and that everyone who hears it will be impacted and renewed. He has a goal to plant one hundred more faith communities which will be carried out with the help of the people he is training up as planters.
In a life of partying and women, Fredy found himself tired and dejected about life when heard the Gospel message in a village in Olanchito called El Carril. He received Jesus at a service held in the field. Since that time in 1980, Fredy has been doing the Lord's work and is excited to serve Christ. His wife, Santos, did not want to know anything about the Gospel until one day when Fredy invited her to the congregation. She agreed to go, and two weeks later she accepted Christ as her Savior. Since Christ called Fredy and Santos, they have not stopped serving Him.
Fredy and Santos got married in 1981 and together have five sons:
- Josue Noe Vega Tejeda
- David Alexander Vega Tejeda
- Fredy Daniel Vega Tejeda
- Adonis Samuel Vega Tejeda
- Steven Jonathan Vega Tejeda
- Three years of internship receiving theological studies at the Central American Biblical Institute
- Diploma in Pastoral Theology
- Certification by BEE

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.
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.
Upper classes in Honduras predominantly adhere to Catholicism, while evangelical Protestant affiliation increases among the urban poor.
Population: 9 million
Major Religions: 97% Roman Catholic, 3% Protestant
