Biblical education is the foundation of all aspects of our ministry in Guatemala. God’s Word is the light that guides us down the path of life. We need God’s Word to give us context to all other knowledge and decisions. Medical education enables first responders from the local church to address the immediate physical suffering of the community supported by regular visits of volunteer professionals. School Education prepares the future generation by giving young people the opportunity to complete their education. Regular training for pastors and leaders strengthens the the church and builds community.
We have achieved a significant milestone toward addressing these opportunities with the mountain community of Chel and towns within a three hour walk. We have begun construction on the “Viala Training Center” dedicated to Biblical education, medical care and training, and the Run:Hope education initiative. With the help of two teams from the U.S., the perimeter walls have been built and the medical clinic portion has begun.
Following are some pictures starting off the school year in the education program. Please keep our teachers and students in prayer.
