Introducing Juan Alberto Herrera
Director of Seminary Extension
"I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one
comes to the Father, but through Me” (John 14:6).
life was filled with sadness before I came to know Christ as my Savior.
1979 an evil group of communist rebels called the Sandinistas attacked
different sections of the country of Nicaragua in Central America. The
communist guerrillas took over the city of Octotal where my family lived. Many
thousands of innocent people were killed including women and children.
father was a military officer in the democratic government. I was 18 years old
when the Sandinistas kidnapped my father and murdered him in the mountains.
This was the saddest time for my family and me.
mother is a beautiful Christian and leader in a Baptist church where I grew up.
During this disastrous time my mother was faithful to the Lord, prayed for me,
and always looked to the Lord for her strength.
the other hand, all I wanted to do was get vengeance for the violent death of
my father. I was filled with so much hatred that I wanted to kill with my own
hands the first Sandinista I found. I was filled with evil thoughts when a group
of Contras, who were against the Sandinista revolution, invited me to join them
in their meetings. Their goal was to avenge the deaths of our fathers.
My mother saw
that I was not walking in a good way. She always said, “My son, vengeance is in
the hands of God. We must trust Him to do justice.” I told her that I did not
believe in God, and that I wanted to kill those who killed my father. My mother
cried and prayed for me all the time.
passed by when I felt in my heart a great emptiness. I visited an evangelical
church. My mother was very happy when she heard that I was visiting the church.
But I was a youth in rebellion. I was addicted to drugs and a lot of other
things the world offered.
in desperation, I came home from working in the field and wanted to speak with
my mother. Neighbors told me she was at the church; so I went there. A large
group of believers had gathered, and much to my surprise I learned they were
praying for me. At first I was angry and resented it. Then I was overwhelmed by
a deep conviction of my sins and the pastor shared with me the good news that
Jesus Christ died for all my sins and rose from the dead. I put my faith in
Christ as my Savior in 1983.
Because of the
Sandinistas my family and thousands of other Nicaraguans were forced to flee
across the border into Honduras. Baptist missionaries worked with the refugees
in El Paraiso and Danli. They took me in and taught me the Scriptures and how
to grow in Christ. God called me to the Gospel ministry and I was invited to
study for four years at a Baptist Bible Institute in Tegucigalpa. After
graduation I taught in the institute for four more years. During the next 18
years I went out with medical dental evangelism teams from the United States
and did music evangelism and preaching. During those same years I have worked
with other pastors in Danli, Honduras, where I live and we have started a dozen
churches here. In October 2004, I sensed the Lord leading me to devote myself
fulltime to church planting and pastoring the Alpha and Omega Baptist Church. I
had the privilege of starting this church in Danli several years ago. We have
six missions with their own pastors and we are opening up new areas.
Naomi and I have
three children: Linda (9), Ashley (3), and little Juan Alberto (1).
Wil Pounds and I
have been working together on mission teams for the past ten years. In our work
with the rural pastors we have been burdened for those who have never had a
chance to get a formal Bible education and adequately prepare for ministry. We
both sense the Lord’s leading in our lives to start seminary extension courses
for these rural pastors. In January 2005, Wil taught the first of ten courses
to 47 pastors and church leaders. We are busy now with classes in 2006. Pray for
our ministry here.
