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!

The board of directors of AJS is thrilled to report that we have received sufficient donations and pledges to cover the cost of constructing our new office in Honduras!

We want a deep change in our country… a person who responds to our longing for justice," we prayed during the Attorney General selection process. 

An AJS-led coalition of Brave Christians - Onan (far right) - pray at Honduras' Supreme Court for an Attorney General who is "competent, diligent, independent, and brave."

"As AJS has continually challenged me and helped me to grow in my understanding of justice, I have also been able to share this message with people around the world," writes AJS Executive Director Jill Stoltzfus.

Pray with us!

"We demand that the Attorney General selected be the man or woman that the country deserves, someone who pleases God, who is respectable, competent, diligent, independent, and brave, a person committed to lead the fight to reverse the impunity that for so long has damaged the country of Honduras."

After Rosa’s husband was shot in front of her by two gang members, she found herself paralyzed by fear. But AJS psychological counseling led her towards healing, and empowered her to participate as a witness in the trial of the men who killed her husband. Rosa’s bravery helped AJS to achieve a conviction in the case. Now Rosa stays involved with AJS as a community informant, helping to keep her community safe for her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. 

Early in the morning, more than seventy youth, pastors, and staff members of AJS gathered on the steps of the Honduran Supreme Court to meet with the committee responsible for naming the finalists for Honduras' Attorney General. After an extended time of prayer, the youth read the following letter, demanding a transparent process and quality candidates.
