Mission trips and missionary support to the people of Guatemala.

We build homes, hand out food baskets, minister in local churches, hold VBS for the kids, provide much needed supplies for the men and women, and much more. Our primary goal is not to meet physical needs but to reach people with the gospel and meet their greatest need! Were thankful to God for His faithfulness to provide for, direct, and bless this ministry and we look forward to many more trips in the future!
