Mission Guatemala currently operates health and dental clinics that serve the Mayan population in Guatemala. NUMC has pledged prayer and financial support for a previous pastor, Tom Heaton as he serves this ministry. In July 2017 a team of 10 youth and adults will travel to Mission Guatemala to help build, install stoves and work with children there.  If you’d like to help with the trip, click the “Online Giving” button and select ‘Missions.”

After a very long day of travel (17 hours) we are settling in for a good night’s rest.  We had a wonderful day, saw some beautiful parts of Guatemala, and met some lovely people.

We spent the day in Chichicastenango learning about the Mayan Culture, touring churches, a cemetery, and exploring the market.  Our youth, and some adults, bartered for goods. We were lead by an amazing tour guide, Daniel, who provided amazing insight into the culture.We spent the day in Chichicastenango learning about the Mayan Culture, touring churches, a cemetery, and exploring the market.  Our youth, and some adults, bartered for goods.

Another fabulous day in Guatemala. We visited the Mission Guatemala clinic and learned about their programs and services.   This was very informative and humbling.   We delivered the vitamins we brought along to donate.  Our now good friend Daniel took some of our youth to help prepare lunch.  We should ask these boys to make guacamole at our next church meal.  Very, very delicious.  Then we headed to the work site to get started with our project. We moved stacks of cement block UP to the work site….a team effort at its best!!  It is wonderful to see the seamless way our group has become a team! Equally as wonderful is watching our youth taking active roles in all we are doing.  They are making us…and all of you back home….proud. Barb Kelp
