Guatemala

OM in Guatemala serves their community by caring for local children, offering medical attention and sharing Jesus’ love with Guatemalans

Guatemala is in Central America, bordering Mexico, Belize, Honduras and El Salvador. All of Guatemala’s major cities are situated in the southern half of the country— the nation’s capital of Guatemala City, Quetzaltenango and Escuintla. The diverse history and natural beauty of the land have created a country rich in interesting and scenic sites. The prominent religions in Guatemala are Roman Catholic, Protestant and indigenous Mayan beliefs.  

OM focuses efforts in several different areas in Guatemala. First, we have Project Rescue. In this day-care-center-like ministry, we help around 45 children twice a week with food, tutoring, teaching values and mentoring. Also, the mothers of the children receive guidance and support in different areas of their lives. 

Next, we have medical brigades. Throughout the year, the team goes out with foreign and local doctors to bless poor communities with free medical attention and medicine. 

We also do school visits. Our team does programs in local schools with the goal to teach the children Christian values and to share about Jesus. 

OM in Guatemala also focuses our efforts on mobilizing the Guatemalan church to world missions. By visiting local churches, we seek to bring missions awareness to their members and to mobilize those Christians whom God has called to serve.
