UPDATE: we really need help rightaway!
Do you want to help and make a difference in the hearts and lives of the Guatemalan people?
We are a non-denominational Spirit filled evangelical ministry. This ministry was founded by me and my wife. We are focusing on feeding the mind, body and soul of each individual we help. We not only provide meals to a rural Mayan community we are teaching needed skills and nurturing their souls; teaching people to live rightly with Godly principles.
We have our Missionary base in the capital of Guatemala right near the international airport where we are renting out rooms. All of the profits go to help the Mayan community, first of all widows and orphans and of course it helps also to cover the operating costs to run the mission.
I am living with my wife, our 3 kids and our little dog right in the same house where we are renting out up to 7 rooms.
In order to continue this ministry, extend our reach across Guatemala and expand our programs we appreciate a lot any help we can get from every volunteer from all over the world :)
DIY and building projects
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals

This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
As we are a Christian Ministry you are expected to participate in devotions at 7am weekdays. Then we start to help around the Mission base.
In your free time feel free to explore the town. There are museums, artistic markets, malls and night life nearby.
Much of what we do is office work needed to keep the hotel and mission running and raising money in order to be able distributing food, firewood, medicine and Bibles to the Mayan community.
For our Mission base in Guatemala City we are looking for volunteers who speak English and can help with administration tasks, internet research and social media on the computer. We also would be happy to get some help with cleaning, maintenance and repair things (sometimes).
If you are coming volunteering with us we provide three meals a day and housing and need support full time (5hours) 5 days per week. Typical schedule is 7am Bible study, 7:30am start helping and noon is lunch time, finishing the day at 4pm. We work on Saturdays as well from 7:00-14:00, so sometimes you may have to take a free day some other day.
Every day we have 2 locals working in the Mission base, so you will not feel alone as we try to make a difference in this world :) Great chance to practice your Spanish skills.
In exchange you get a bed in one of our rooms (all simple rooms with bunk beds) whilst you are staying with us at our house in Guatemala City.
3 meals will be provided for you. For breakfast you can help yourself in the common kitchen / dining room where usually also the lunch will be served for you. If you are here for supper we normally eat all together and you can be a part of our family if you like. Therefore we would ask you either helping with cooking or cleaning up afterwards.
We really need help! We would provide free room and board in exchange for knowing you are making a difference in this world.
If you want to help us with your skills, and you also want to learn about Guatemala or you want to practice your Spanish with our work culture, this is your chance.
