MCC began our mission outreach in Guatemala in the fall of 2012. Earlier in the year our Elders began praying for God to give us a God-sized vision...a vision larger than we could accomplish on our own that would require total trust in Him. As a result of those prayers the Lord focused our vision on the digging of one deep-water well each year. Then, together with our congregation, we began asking the Lord to direct us to a specific area of the world where we could impact a people group for the kingdom. His direction was to the Central American country of Guatemala. Working with a ministry called World Help we began the well drilling process and on November 5th - 9th, 2012 a team from MCC went to El Palmo where they had the privlege of dedicating the completed well. Praise God!
In addition to the well dedication our teams now serve in a variety of ministries at the Hope of Life compound, including a baby rescue center, a special needs clinic for children, an orphanage of over 100 children, an elderly care center, village food distribution, feeding hundreds of people living on a garbage dump, loading trucks to deliver to earthquake victims, washing the feet of hundreds of children and providing them with new shoes, and seeing firsthand the mighty work of God in Guatemala!
Now MCC has been coordinating other mission trips to Guatemala to explore what other opportunities God may have for us in the country. This has led us to adopt a village in the mountains in an unreached area known as Lomas de Oquen as well as to participate in the ongoing ministries at the Hope of Life center. We are aiming to do three to four trips a year. The goal is to partner with the pastor of the village, Pastor Oto, assist them in getting a church building, feeding center and clean water. Below is a picture in Lomas showing Pastor Oto with Pastor Brad and Pastor Neri (the church planter we partner with in Guatemala).
The next trip is scheduled for November 7-14, 2015. Please continue in your prayers for Lomas de Oquen and for God to lead us as we seek His vision for MCC there. If you are interested in participating in a future trip please contact Pastor Brad at 814-835-4673 or .
