Monthly Mission Focus – Mission Guatemala
Mission Guatemala is a United Methodist related organization with a mission to help meet the basic needs and improve the quality of life of under-served and impoverished Guatemalan peoples through health, education, and nutrition initiatives and through missionary service.
Current projects include: medical clinic, pharmacy, dental clinic, eye clinic, feeding centers for chronically malnourished children, community development projects, vocational training programs, water filters for schools and families, and fuel efficient wood burning stoves. They also work with volunteer mission teams and the local villages to offer an array of community development and improvement projects. Mission Guatemala’s philosophy is based on John Wesley’s teaching to, “Do all the good you can.”

Special Giving Opportunity
Thanks to the generous support from so many, Mission Guatemala is very close to completing fundraising for the clinic property purchase! They are now focusing on scholarships for middle and high school students in 2020. With the government only readily providing education up to 6th grade, the scholarship program supports students to continue their education. The average monthly cost to provide a middle school scholarship for these students is $25 a month, and the average monthly cost to provide a high school scholarship is $50 a month. We invite you to help make these students’ dreams a reality!
