Guatemala Missions reflects God’s unconditional love, which surrenders all, inspires trust and faith, and embraces all people regardless of race, status or creed. We believe that Christ is alive, and that we can best serve Him by being of assistance to those in the greatest need (Matthew 25:31-40).
Guatemala Missions Vision is that we embraces an intensely personal and biblical response to God’s call to end physical and spiritual hungers. This intentional walk with the poor mirrors God’s walk with each of us, recognizing our own brokenness and His transforming grace that brings out our God-given potential.
Guatemala Missions was created for the purpose of serving the poor and marginalized people of El Salvador and Guatemala and other impoverished areas. Projects are designed to enable Guatemala Missions to provide housing, hunger, health, sanitation and educational assistance to those most in need.
Guatemala Missions currently coordinates an annual missionary trip to Guatemala and El Salvador, as well as provides support for additional projects throughout the year.
Guatemala Missions will determine the needs of the people of Guatemala and El Salvador by these, but not limited to these means: in-country experiences, to include previous trips; discussing needs with the mission workers in Guatemala and El Salvador. Future projects will also be determined by factors including the number of mission trips and volunteers who commit to going, and the amount of funding that can be raised for each mission trip.
Guatemala Missions Serves in a Catholic tradition, but welcomes people of all religions to serve as missionaries. Guatemala Missions also welcomes people of different skill sets, abilities, and ages, so that those interested in participating in a mission trip in Guatemala and El Salvador can do so. Guatemala Missions does not intend to limit its activities to Guatemala and El Salvador. Guatemala Missions intends to meet housing, health, sanitation, and educational issues wherever there may be a need.
