So what do you do as a missionary in Guatemala? Aren’t there already churches there? Why are you involved in social work? Isn’t the job of a missionary only to share the Gospel and plant churches? Like any missionary, these are questions that I get asked from time to time.
This month was the first vacation camp for the kids at the orphanage Fundaninos in Guatemala. their School ended at the beginning of November and for two weeks they had a great time having cooking, woodworking, dance, music and art class.
In our work caring for orphaned and vulnerable children in Guatemala, we see the heart of the Gospel. The Gospel is God doing for us what we cannot do for ourselves, so, when we reach out and care for the orphaned or vulnerable, are doing for them what they cannot do for themselves and that is the beauty of the love God has for us.
