Known as “The Land of Eternal Spring”, Guatemala is one of the most beautiful and diverse countries in Central America. Tourists travel from all over the world to climb its volcanoes, drink its coffee, and zip line through the rainforest.
However, 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.
Adventures’ Base in Guatemala has been established near Antigua since 2012. Our long term missionaries at the base love hosting Short Term Mission teams, inviting them into opportunities to serve in a variety of ways.
Stove Installation: Many of the local Guatemalan families that live below the poverty line cook over a fire in their home. This leads to major problems from smoke inhalation, but is a generally accepted way of life. Installing stoves into these families’ homes is a great way to show love the community and begin a relationship that will hopefully guide them toward Jesus.
Clean Water: Many of the same families also struggle to access clean water in their homes. This also provides us an opportunity to meet a felt need and share the love of Jesus as we install water filtration systems and train people about the importance of clean water.
Church Mobilization: We partner with local churches to train up Guatemalan missionaries. This is a great opportunity to invest in Guatemalans that will eventually move to another country to share the love of Christ, make disciples and plant churches.
Our base has bunk rooms specifically built and designed for short term teams. You’ll have access to bathrooms, showers, meeting space and a kitchen, all behind a safety wall and gate leading to the compound. There’s plenty of space!
