Building. Training. Connecting.

Guatemala is a country of contrast: rural pueblos and cemented cities, glitzy malls and marginalized communities, progress and antiquity, powerful ladino males and powerless indigenous women, very observable religion and a desperate need for the true, holistic Gospel. TEAM Guatemala, being relatively new to the country, is finding bruised hearts that need building up, passionate leaders that need training in truth, and isolated people and organizations that need to trust each other. But what all Guatemalans need is a deeply penetrating, transforming relationship with Jesus that will allow them to be and build the Body of Christ.
