GUATEMALA NEEDS CHRIST
Guatemala is located in Central America with a population of a little over 15 million. It is considered a third world country due to the extreme poverty and lack of access to basic needs, such as water and education.
~75% of Guatemalan people do not have enough income to purchase a food basket.
The average daily income for a Guatemalan is $3-6.
Only 3 out of 10 children make it to the 6th grade.
Guatemala has the highest teen pregnancy rate in all of Latin America.
A Lack of Hope
With numbers like these, you can imagine that the majority of Guatemalans don’t have a lot of hope. Parents expect that their children will end up dropping out of school to get jobs.
A Vicious cycle
Girls are expected to end up pregnant by an age as young as 10 years old. The cycle is vicious, and yet they know no other way.
Teaching a better way of life centered on Christ through discipleship
His Hands and Feet ministries wants to bring the message of salvation and hope. We are currently working in 2 locations; Zorzoya and Magdalena Milpas Altas. Here's what we're doing to get to know the kids and demonstrate a better way of life:
We believe that after accepting Christ in their hearts every person should have a group of people to grow spiritually and learn what it means to be a follower of Christ..
We work with the local church to advance God's Kingdom through discipleship and meeting the needs of the communities. We do this by training Pastors and leaders with passionate hearts.
I am the Future
We have a monthly development program to help teach the children of the community to work and help their own community by cleaning the streets and help the families in need
At risk Youth
Youth is the future of the country, that’s why we have different programs to reach out to them and share the gospel. We work alongside the local church to connect with them.
HELP US OPEN THE NEW
HIS HANDS & FEET MINISTRY CENTER
The new center will allow us to:
Hold English classes
Host computer skills classes
Help children with learning disabilities

Much more to come
The new center will be designated for the spiritual and educational development for people searching for a better future. We believe that the gospel and proper education are the best way to help communities overcome poverty and family disintegration.
The center will be established in the heart of San Lucas Sacatepéquez benefitting 8 surrounding communities. We also have connections with the communities in 3 nearby towns.
