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. But the true beauty of Guatemala is its people. Gripped by poverty, the people of Guatemala hunger for the Kingdom of God. The majority of Guatemalans practice a form of Catholicism, and it’s estimated many also mix in ancient tribal religions and cultural traditions into their faith.
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: You'll connect with people and learn their personal stories, and share your faith through the power of relationship.
Kids Ministry: You could do children's ministry in local villages and schools sharing the love of Christ through kids' favorite language: fun.
Community Outreach: You might share Christ at the city dump, one of the poorest areas of Guatemala. 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, sharing hope with 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.
You'll get to sleep bunk beds, take regular showers, and use western toilets. Wifi and electricity are available as well as clean water.
God is calling you to journey with Him, to share His love with the nations and establish His Kingdom on earth. Will you join Him in Guatemala?

Mayan culture is enjoying a renaissance after the rediscovery of their ancient civilization. For some, this is a resurrection of the old, long-submerged Mayan religion, but to others, it is a blossoming of indigenous Christianity aided by the many new translations of the Bible in indigenous languages. There are church-planting movements among many groups, most notably the Kekchi (Baptists and Mennonites). CAMI, CoN and Mennonites also work among Mayan peoples. There has been outreach to every tribe. Pray for these churches to become mature, effectively led and a vital contribution to the Church in the nation.
