Our goal with international mission work is to build relationships, expand our knowledge of the world and use that knowledge no matter where we serve. The world is a very, very different place outside the U.S. and understanding those differences allows us to be better neighbors both local and beyond. We approach these trips as a pilgrimage, understanding that we are not bringing God to Guatemala (he is already very much there), but instead to spiritually seek what God has for us in the time we spend there.

Projects that Assurance missioners have participated in with Mission Guatemala have included:

December 2015 – Solely funded Christmas food baskets for each of the 178 families in the community of Panimatzalam. The baskets were filled with various Christmas treats, such as marshmallows, chocolate, and cookies, as well as other nutritious food items, all of which are presented in a sturdy, reusable plastic basket. In addition to the basket of food, each family also received a bag of corn, which is a main staple in Guatemalan meals, as well as a live chicken, which has been raised as part of Mission Guatemala’s chicken program. 

August 2015 - Continued construction on two class rooms in the village of Xecotoj in 2015. This school had two finished classrooms, but students were still attending class in a third classroom that was basically a tin shed. 

December 2014 – Participated in the funding of 204 Christmas food baskets for the communities of Xepec and Xejuyu I, filled with various food staples and holiday treats, 15 pounds of corn, and a live chicken. 

August 2014 - Finishing work on building a playground in Las Canoas Bajas. Previous to the construction of the new playground, the 300-plus students at the school had the use of only one small metal slide and a small, two-swing swing set, both of which were in deteriorating and unsafe condition. The only open area for the kids to play was uneven and covered in trash and broken glass.

August 2016 - Join us, Sunday, August 20, when our Guatemala team will share their experiences with us and tell us all about what God has done and continuing to do in Guatemala.
