• Invest in the future of the people of Guatemala - help send a child to school, provide food, a place to receive medical care and give them hope to make them whole.
  • Get Involved - Volunteer your time and come help with building projects, children's programs and the feeding ministry.
  • Imagine your home is made out of plastic sheets, your floor is dirt, and you have to walk several miles for clean water. This is the life of the average poor in Guatemala. Support our Ministries today!

“The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.”

Isaiah 9:2
