Guatemala is a rugged, mountainous, jungle covered country filled with visible, crumbling reminders of ancient civilizations. It is a very religious country where spirituality is observable nearly everywhere but which is seldom more than a blistering, peeling veneer hiding fears, masking poverty and delaying concerns for an uncertain future. What all Guatemalans need is a deeply penetrating, transforming relationship with Jesus that will allow them to be and build the Body of Christ. We serve in Guatemala City, the capital and metropolitan center of the country. Guatemala City is home to over 3 million residents. Despite having a high percentage of nominal evangelicals, Guatemala City desperately needs churches. This capital of the most populated central american country is also considered one of the most violent cities in the world.
