Guatemala Mission Trip 2022


November 20–27, 2022


Antigua Guatemala


See details below


A place full of color and culture, Antigua Guatemala attracts many tourists from around the world. But few who visit ever see the need that exists in the communities around them. Poverty and lack of employment have increased significantly (nearly 35 percent) over the past three years. As such, these communities do not have access to quality medical care or education. 

However, even in the midst of this crisis, the precious people in these communities have an earnest desire to learn more about Christ. That's why Amazing Facts Latino and AFCOE are planning evangelistic and mission work in November!

Most Sabbath-keeping churches in the region do not have a place to meet. Home churches are common, but this limits the number of people who can attend worship. Amazing Facts Latino and AFCOE graduates will help these communities by providing health clinics with medical staff and other needs, while also presenting prophecy seminars in the region. Pastor Doug will be meeting with pastors for training on November 22 and 23 and then speaking on November 24, 25, and 26 for a GYC meeting in a big tent that seats 1,500.

Sabbath-keeping pastors in Guatemala are fervent workers for the Lord, and their desire to grow in the work is great, but economic limitations prevent them from receiving the evangelism training they need to be effective shepherds. That’s why we’ll also be providing pastors with effective tools to share the gospel. About 150 pastors from all over Guatemala will come and receive evangelism training that will be a blessing for their churches and communities.

If you wish to be a part of our support team, please do not hesitate to sign up! We are certain that it will be a blessing for you, as there is no greater joy than seeing others come to know Christ!

We will be helping to build one church in an area that does not have a place to meet, worship, and/or fellowship together. The scarcity of resources in the area has prevented believers dedicated to evangelism from starting their own church construction.

We will be conducting health seminars across four days in some communities in the area; many people do not have access to all medical care.

We will also present VBS for children of different ages.
