Roles of a missionary in Guatemala?

Roles of a Missionary

Ministry update by Tim and Sharie Martiny, Missionaries in Guatemala. In other special activities this month, we took the girls from Fundaninos out for a day with our family.

Where is the Fruit in your ministry in Guatemala?

Where is the Fruit?

Where is the Fruit in your ministry in Guatemala? That is a question I get asked a lot. In today’s world of stats, metrics and instant data, people want to quantify progress and break it down into neat clean identifiable charts.

The Missionary Calling
