Pray with Jo Ann Van Engen, AJS Co-Founder, as she reflects on the migrant caravan walking north and the renewal of systems in Honduras.

THE LAWYER. Chapter 5 of the "How to Solve a Murder in Honduras" Series. AJS lawyers represent vulnerable victims pro bono, and sometimes advocate for years as cases slowly move forward. In this way, they achieve victories in individual cases, but also show both citizens and officials that no case is too difficult to achieve justice.

Please pray with us this month!

"How to Solve a Murder in Honduras," a special series from AJS that tells the story of how criminal investigators, lawyers, police officers, psychologists, information analysts, and victims are working together to end violence in Honduras.

THE WITNESS. Chapter 1 in the "How to Solve a Murder in Honduras" Series. Brave witnesses are crucial to convicting murderers in Honduras. Some of these witnesses later become community informants, providing Peace and Justice staff with important information and insight about crime in their neighborhood, and helping to solve even more cases.

THE INVESTIGATOR. Chapter 2 of the "How to Solve a Murder in Honduras" Series. Investigators with AJS’s Peace and Justice Project accompany police officers as they investigate a crime. Perhaps most importantly, they act as a trusted bridge between victims and authorities, giving witnesses the confidence to report crimes and share their testimony.

THE INFORMATION ANALYST. Chapter 3 of the "How to Solve a Murder in Honduras" Series. Information Analysts with AJS’ Peace and Justice Project compile leads and evidence lawyers and investigators learn through their fieldwork and from witnesses. With their digital database, they are able to analyze suspects' identities and bring down criminal networks.

THE POLICE OFFICIAL. Chapter 4 of the "How to Solve a Murder in Honduras" Series. AJS’s ultimate goal is to see government systems, including the police force, work well. The Peace and Justice project doesn’t try to do an end run around the National Police, but to accompany them, train them, and help them to do their job better. 

Since 2005, our Peace and Justice project has touched over 800 lives through the close cooperation of criminal investigators, lawyers, police officers, psychologists, information analysts, and victims and witnesses. In this special series from AJS, you will hear from some of these key players who are solving murders and bringing hope to families in Honduras. 

Please pray with us!
