Bringing love and healing to hearts in need
What we do?
The main focus of La Misión is to create medical clinics in the rural areas of Guatemala promoting general medicine, dental and ophthalmology, provide effective education to public schools including Christian values and share a message of salvation, love and forgiveness through of Jesus.
We promote the integral development of Guatemalan communities in need, guiding and empowering each individual, so they can know God and fulfill his purpose in their life and community.
To God be the glory!

The stunted growth shown in these kids is the highest in Latin America and the Caribbean. That is one of the most dire food situations in the world. Guatemala is ranked sixth in the world for child malnutrition. (Source: UNICEF)

Fighting Malnutrition with Kitchens

Our goal is to ensure the health and care of the people in the different villages and one of the ways to do this is through a healthy diet and healthy environment.
