Office History

From the VGR office in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, Brother Elias and Brother Nelson Elvir, assistant distributor, are able to distribute material to the Central American countries of El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. These are not only some of the poorest countries in Latin America, but they are some of the poorest countries in the world. There are about 260 churches or small groups that receive material from the office. The brothers also visit those who receive the material to make sure their needs are being met and discuss the work of VGR with them. Recently another brother, Brother Ariel Huete, was added to assist in the day to day activities of the office.

Since 1987, the work of VGR in Central America has been done in a section of Brother Elias' church where he is the pastor. For many years the material was distributed from this humble place until recently the Lord provided a larger facility to move the office. We are currently in the process of renovating and remolding a 5,000 sq. ft. house in Tegucigalpa and hope to move in very soon.
