Eleven years ago, we began taking short-term mission trips to Guatemala. This led us to a partnership with the Las Conchas area to bring LIFE change through Jesus Christ by establishing a church and community development center. Working with some of the poorest of the poor, God has opened some amazing doors of ministry.
In 2020, we were able to support Guatemala by providing funds through the Hope Wall so they could provide food to the families at Las Conchas. We also helped them financial to continue to serve their community through virtual weekly messages, D-life online training, running the medical clinic, and through weekly devotional videos on social media. They are seeing God work and hearts are being changed!
Over the years, we have seen:
- More than 506 people have accepted Christ
- Land purchased and the first floor of the community development center/church built
- 525 children in the Las Conchas school receive meals 5-days-a-week through the Hope Wall
- 16+ home LIFEgroups begin weekly meetings in Las Conchas
- Support of Pastor Carlos as on-site minister
This year, we will continue to support Guatemala through the Hope Wall and support for Pastor Carlos. We are also working on a unique experience that will bring Guatemala to us since we are unable to go to them.
