What We Do

We are non-denominational missionaries working with pastors, churches, schools, and the local hospital in Chiquimula, Guatemala. We host training seminars for pastors, leaders, and youth from rural areas and we help supply the congregations with Biblical materials to minister to their communities. We are currently building a Ministry Center to host the events. We visit several public schools to share a Biblical story and play with the kids. We also pray in the local hospital and give out toys, toiletries, and Biblical materials.

Good stuff in June!

Well we have almost made it through June in one piece! We had to help move some of our closest friends to Belize this month because they are going to minister there now. Really bites, but I know God has awesome things ready for them to do there! But it was great having them here, and our kids loved their kids which are good friends with our kids. But Lord willing we will still be seeing them and visiting them throughout the year! They live really close to the beach in Belize...that was nice and will be a nice get away from time to time!!
We have been visiting the schools, teaching and playing with the kids! Loving it! Getting to know new faces and personalities and seeing the fear on their faces as they get to know me...haha I don't know why folks look scared or just shake their heads when they are around me...I feel I am a pretty normal guy...good looking and charming...haha But there is this new thing happening in the schools with the kids playing some sort of satanic game with chants and crazy things happening! Don't know if it's happening in the States as well, but the kids here don't see the seriousness of the game and only think it's cool and fun! But that's how the devil likes to get in and then kill, steal, and destroy! So please keep them and us in your prayers so we can preach the Word and give them Jesus!

We had a group of teachers from Alabama come and teach the teachers here this past week.
The schools loved them and the knowledge they were able to gain from the "workshops" the teachers brought. This also opens doors and gives us favor in the eyes of the schools! So thank you to the teachers from Bama, and may God continue to work and transform minds and hearts in the schools!

We also had a group from St. Louis and from Texas come two weeks ago to minister in the
mountains, hospital, and schools. What a great time! And great group! God was glorified and lives were changed and will continue to change after that week! We were able to walk with several pastors through their communities ministering with them and praying with the families in the village while handing out food bags to the families. A lot of times we think we are showing up to be this huge light and change their lives when we leave more impacted and touched than the folks in the village. That's God! And good things happened that week to the folks in the group too! I think we might have found a husband for Nancy! She'll kill me...hahaha But time will tell! So thank you to the groups that came this month to minister with us and help open more doors to be able to continue ministering and go to some new places as well.

Dorm room & 2 Bathrroms
The construction is coming along, praise the Lord! We have a group coming in July that will help pay to get the roof put on and then another group that will help move the dirt and level the rooms out for the floors. We don't have any more funds as of now to continue with the construction. We still lack the floors and bathroom items to get the first phase finished and the seminars functioning in there rather than at our rented house. So please pray for God to continue to provide for the construction and the vision He has given us. If you feel lead or want to help with the ministry center, please contact us and we can explain many different ways how you can help.

Thank you God for a great month in June! You are awesome and keep surprising us and showing us your power, love , and faithfulness everyday! Thank y'all for your prayers and support which keep us going and help accomplish all that we do here for the glory of God! God bless!!
