Guatemala - Internships Available
Guatemala is rich in natural beauty — from the banks of the Rio Dulce, to the shores of Lake Atitlan, and the peaks of all 37 volcanoes, this Central American nation is one of the most beautiful in the world.
But behind its beauty lies the lingering pain of a 36-year civil war and recent devastating natural disasters that orphaned many children and left others in extreme poverty. Their faith is mixed with practices of ancient tribal religions, diluting the Gospel and leaving many feeling physically and spiritually alone.
The mission of Adventures Guatemala is to serve, disciple, and send.
We serve communities through water filter distribution, community outreach, and the installation of fuel-efficient stoves. We disciple through monthly Church activation conferences, “Beauty for Ashes” women’s events, village Bible studies and discipleship classes, and discipleship of World Race: Gap Year squads and short-term teams. We send through training local pastors and churches and then send them into their communities and on short-term mission trips.
By joining Adventures Guatemala you will work alongside and disciple both Guatemalan and short-term missions teams. Everything we do is founded on the ministry of reconciliation to which all believers are called, described in 2 Corinthians 5:18-20.
All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.
