The Lord turned a life of drugs, alcohol, and jail sentences to a calling for Pastor Carlos Zuniga to evangelism and church planting. Carlos received Jesus Christ in 2001 while he was in jail. At the age of six, his father was murdered, and at that point Carlos went to live in the streets of Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras. He began falling into the vices of alcohol, drugs, and hatred, wanting to avenge the death of his father.
At the age of 18, Carlos was arrested because of illicit association, and that night God used a policeman to speak to him for the first time about Jesus Christ. That night he received Jesus Christ as his personal Savior. Carlos tells us, “That was the most beautiful day in my life.” He was imprisoned for two years and after two months the Lord woke him up as an evangelist, and in that prison he began to preach to all the prisoners and win them for Jesus Christ.
Carlos was baptized once he was released from prison and felt that God had called him as a church planter. Today, he works full time with the Baptist Church under the supervision and training of Missions Door missionary, Victor Almendarez in Honduras. Carlos has planted two churches in the biblical extension program, and he thanks God for saving him and calling him to His work.
Pastor Carlos is married to Antonia, and together they have two children: Linder Abshalom (8), and Joshadac Azarel (5)
