We Believe In Guatemala

Throughout the Bible, God used ordinary people to do extraordinary things. Believe Guatemala began much the same way, a group of ordinary people with no money, resources or connections, called by God to do the impossible: start a ministry in The City Dump, one of the poorest areas of Guatemala City. God asked “Do you trust me?”, and we responded “Here I am, send me”. In the beginning we were scared, but God eased our fears, confirmed our path, and constantly provided. Even our name, Believe Guatemala, was inspired by the belief He has in His children to be transformed and restored through Him. He provided an opportunity to buy land being used as a trash site inside the dump community and the resources to build our Restoration Center where children and families receive God’s love. This is a perfect example of God’s plan for all our people. If he can turn a trash site into place of refuge, just imagine what he can do in the hearts and lives of all communities in Guatemala.

I invite you today to Believe with us, to be part of God’s plan for Guatemala. Tell God “here I am, send me” and allow Him to lead. He will always provide.

God Bless You,

Joel Juarez, Founder
