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.

"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.

Sacrificing hours from their busy weeks, volunteers use simple information-gathering instruments to record things like how many days schools meet for class, how many classes are taught, and for how long, whether the school has textbooks and materials, and other issues important to children’s education.

With great sadness, the staff and board of AJS mourn the loss of Pete Harkema, our board President, our capital campaign director, and our dear friend.
