The nazar family

Edward and Sarah Nazar are the founders of Living Hope Ministries and execute all general operations of the non-profit corporation.  Edward was born and raised in Honduras, which naturally gives him a connection with the Honduran people. Sarah has lived in San Pedro Sula since 2002, a missionary dedicated to serving the nation of Honduras. They have been married for 17 years and are the joyful parents of Elizabeth (11) and Lia (1) who are mini-missionaries at heart!

Edward's passions are preaching the Word, serving and helping others in any way he can, and any type of motor vehicle!  Sarah loves teaching the Word, organization/administration, and has taken up collecting cactus!  Elizabeth enjoys reading, singing, and dance, and has a unique ability to bring joy to any environment!  Lia is a spark of non-stop energy, and a living testimony of God's miracle working power!


Iglesia Esperanza Viva (translated as Living Hope Church), is a very integral part of the outreach of Living Hope Ministries in Honduras. Edward and Sarah pioneered and pastor the congregation of Living Hope Church, a body of believers that understands that real "church" takes place outside of the building's four walls.  The members of Living Hope Church are the motor behind all of Living Hope Ministries' projects.  

Teamwork is a powerful force!

We believe that the local church is a fundamental part of any ministry outreach.  It is the place

where people that have heard the Gospel for the first time can come to receive God's Word

and grow in their relationship with Him.
