Known as "The Land of Eternal Spring", Guatemala is rich in natural beauty—from the shores of Lake Atitlan, to the peaks of its 37 volcanoes, this Central American nation is one of the most beautiful in the world.
Behind all this beauty lies the lingering pain of a 36-year civil war and recent devastating natural disasters.
The true beauty of Guatemala is its people. Gripped by poverty and bound to religion, the people of Guatemala hunger for the Kingdom of God. The majority of Guatemalans practice a form of Catholicism that is a mixture of tribal religions and cultural tradition.
Will you share the freedom of a relationship with Jesus in Guatemala?
While in Guatemala you will serve in Antigua, and ministry opportunities include:
Relational Evangelism: Connect with people and learn their personal stories. Develop relationships and bring hope to communities by prayer walking and visiting patients in hospitals.
Kids Ministry: You might do a children's ministry program in local villages or schools, as well as visit an orphanage and share the love of Christ through kids' favorite language: fun.
Community Outreach: You might be able to visit the city dump, one of the poorest areas of Guatemala, and share Christ during your time there. Or you might do home visits in a community where families are barely making ends meet, living off of only $2 a day.
Hospital Visits and Retirement Homes: You might visit a local cerebral palsy hospital or retirement home, giving hope to those who feel forgotten and discouraged.
Missional Living: While climbing a volcano, sipping coffee on at the Plaza Central, shopping in the market, or just walking the cobblestone streets, every person you see - tourist and local - will be an opportunity to share the love of Christ.
Will you go and encourage the people of Guatemala with the hope and love of Jesus?
