A Big GRACIAS from Guatemala

Together we’re feeding hungry kids! For #GivingTuesday, together we raised enough to fill 8,411 plates. That’s enough for 323 classrooms! THANK YOU for helping us make sure our Vida students have enough to eat! Or, as Gerson would say, GRACIAS! Thank you for being such a blessing to Gerson, Heyzel, Gahel, Rohi and their classmates in Guatemala!

How Many Meals Will You Give for Giving Tuesday?

A few tortillas with a bit of tomato sauce or chili. Before Heyzel started attending Vida Chijacorral, it wasn’t unusual for that to be her one meal of the day, especially while her Dad was injured and off work. With tears in her eyes, Heyzel’s mom shares how hard they worked to put food on the table for Heyzel and her brothers. Still, sometimes the provisions just didn’t stretch far enough. Today is Giving Tuesday, and Impact Ministries’ #NoHungryKidsGuatemala campaign. Let’s make sure that kids like Heyzel don’t go hungry! Give Food Now Heyzel and her brothers join their classmates…

After much prayer and consultation, Impact Ministries has acquired a piece of land in Mestela, a community about an hour and a half walk over the mountains from Vida Chamché. This is the village that two of our principals, Victor and Ignacio, come from (read their story here). It’s a great location and the community is eager to have us – and there are so many children who need a brighter future here. Watch for more details about Mestela in the coming months, but for now,…

Schools in Guatemala

For our students, having a school to go to is so much more than just an education. Vida Schools are the foundation of our ministry, and provide academics, health care, nutrition, a loving community, and an introduction to God’s faithfulness.

Orphan Care

I don’t want him. I want nothing to do with him!”

Those were the Mom’s words the moment she saw her big-eyed newborn. The baby’s birth mother is a very needy, mentally ill woman living on the streets of Guatemala. And her baby found refuge at the Vida Children’s Home.
