Honduras pastor serves as chaplain to factory workers


The Rev. José Roberto Peña, a United Methodist pastor in Honduras, has a unique side ministry. Every Friday, he preaches to workers at a cigar factory. 

Peña comes to the Tabacos de Oriente in Danlí, Honduras every Friday and preaches through the intercom. “It is very hard work. They usually work more than 12 hours a day and during high production time they work longer hours,” Peña said.
