My dear friend and Brother in Christ went to be with Jesus on August 5, 2019 at the age of 89. His suffering in this life has finally ended after a lifetime of serving the Lord. He delighted in telling others about Jesus and about the way to Eternal Salvation through Jesus Christ.
I enjoyed the twenty or more years that I have known him and cherish the memories we shared in service of the people of Honduras in the name of our Lord and Savior. I will miss Napoleon terribly, but celebrate the home going of one of God’s very best. He was the most Godly man I have ever known..
Pastor Napoleon Nieto was born on May 30, 1930. He is a local (Guaimaca) pastor/home missionary, whom we have known for more than twenty years. He first came to the WBM hospital to preach to patients early each morning as they waited outside the gate to enter the hospital to be seen by a doctor. He witnessed, taught, and invited patients to accept Christ as their personal Savior and Lord. In time he became the voice of Hospital Bautista, preaching in the waiting room as well as ministering to patients and their families on an individual basis. Pastor Nieto also shares Christ through his music playing hymns on his harmonica as he witnessed in church services.
Now Pastor Nieto is old and very poor. He has been the victim of several accidents with vehicles on his bicycle and broke his hip in a fall in his home. After all of the many years he has spent in service to our Lord and Savior we are pleased to have the opportunity to help him with food, medicine, clothes, etc. He lives in his own home alone in Guaimaca. His wife and family live in the United States and visit him occasionally. Pastor Nieto has expressed his desire to remain in Guaimaca, where he feels God has placed hm, to minister to anyone he is able to reach for Christ. .
