Guatemala Mission Team
St. John’s has been sending mission teams to Guatemala since 2004 to help with the wonderful work Impact Ministries is doing there. Impact Ministries has built 7 SCHOOLS in the area and currently provides 1,800 CHILDREN with breakfasts each morning. Members of our team directly sponsor a number of these children.
A MEDICAL CLINIC has also been built that now allows for local and visiting doctors to treat illnesses and is also a place where prevention is taught. Other aspects include AFTERNOON PROGRAMS for children, the EMPLOY of over 100 Guatemalans, the support of an AGRICULTURAL PROGRAM, and even providing an INTERNET CAFÉ to the area.
Through these programs, children are able to get a BROAD ACADEMIC EDUCATION, individual CARE AND COUNSELING, CHRISTIAN DISCIPLESHIP AND TRAINING in God’s Word, MEDICAL CARE, DAILY NUTRITIOUS BREAKFASTS AND VITAMINS, a BIRTHDAY GIFT each year, and NEW SHOES at Christmas.
Our Mission Team is now preparing to go to Guatemala again in February 2017. Please keep the team in your prayers, and if short-term missions is something that interests you, please contact the church office to find out more!
Proclaim his glory to the nations, his mighty deeds to all peoples.
