As we prepare for our upcoming Apple Chase 5K in October we are thoughtful of those families in Guatemala who will have life changing opportunities as a direct result of this 5K run. A chance to simply go to school or learn life and relationship skills. If your business or church would like to sponsor the 5K, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
An important part of the Thursday community center is early childhood stimulation for those children not yet in school. As Rosita and Ana worked with the moms and children in Popabaj, they learned the moms didn’t not connect with their children in typical ways which hindered the early steps of development. So Ana and Rosita are working with the children to help bridge some of the gaps, but they are also working with the moms to encourage interaction every day of the week. God works through relationships and the children and moms are all learning and interacting in new ways.
“So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; male and female HE created them. And God blessed them [granting them certain authority] and said to them, ‘Be fruitful, multiply, and fill the earth, and subjugate it [putting it under your power]; and rule over (dominate) the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and every living thing that moves upon the earth.’”
Genesis 1:27-28 AMP
For the Love of Missions focuses on empowering local leaders to create and implement their vision for discipleship, poverty alleviation and community transforming programs. We know our God is relational so it is no surprise that all progress comes from growing relationships. But we also know our God is creative and created humans to be creative so it is fascinating to see the different approaches to the life changing relationships. As our creative partners in Guatemala are empowered they will be empowering others and as that happens we will see God’s kingdom coming.
Scholarships are a great and easy way for you to partner with us to raise the funds needed for our school program. Our goal is to reach $20,000 in order to provide tuition, uniforms and all supplies and fees needed for children who live on the city dump a better life and future.

Vision Trips provide an opportunity to see how God is working in Guatemala. He is using For the Love of Missions to reveal Himself in the Guatemala City garbage dump community, the rural community of Popabaj, and through the small business of Javier. On a vision trip you will experience God’s work with all the people represented by these places. It will change your vision of God, of poverty, and so much more. 2018 teams will be forming soon. Pray and prepare to commit to a life changing experience.
When you cross the finish line you provide a starting line for children to attend school who live on the Guatemala City Dump. So if you like to run or walk, please join us on October 28, 2017 in Hoschton, GA. Great giveaways include a super soft long-sleeve T and a pair new shoes to the top runners. Can’t wait to see you there.
