319 Ministry Highlights in Guatemala
Dr. Sara
  • We are grateful for the completion of a full summer of short-term outreaches.
  • We have 11 ministry sites running in SI Guatemala.
  • Around 16 full time staff.
  • Our newest site: Sports, lead by Marcos Canahui, who used to be the site leader for Education at El Gorrion for the last 6 years. Marcos is playing sports with different groups of children and teenagers from the different communities of Magdalena Milpas Altas, El Gorrion, and San Miguel Milpas Altas. He is practicing sports and at the same time he is sharing God’s word with each group of children/teenagers. They are playing mostly soccer, basketball, baseball.
  • Please pray as we are in a transition: We are praying for a new staff in Microfinance as Aaron Kelly is finishing his 5 years commitment at the end of September.
  • In September we will have for the first time a Seattle Pacific University Nursing team. Ten nursing students will be in Magdalena Milpas Altas, Guatemala for three weeks. They will spend one week learning Spanish and the other two weeks they will conduct surveys and work on a presentation of the more important health care needs in Magdalena Milpas Altas and San Miguel Milpas Altas.
