Building Churches in Guatemala

19 Mar

Traveling to Northern Guatemala on a short term mission trip can be a life changing experience.  In February we had another opportunity to not only work to with Mike McComb and the Ixil people but to see God work in our hearts as well.   It was good to work together building God’s kingdom.

One of our team members captured the essence of this trip on a short video.  I hope you enjoy seeing the journey.

Building in the Kingdom

30 Jul

AAsia Const projectt Living Word Community Church we have been able to come alongside ministries in other countries to help them build churches, recreation facilities and other buildings to share the love of God. That can be done through donations to help buy materials and/or physical labor to help with the construction. In south central Asia there is a school that needed a covering to protect the children from the hot mid day sun. This past week they made progress on the foundation of the building. It is a great start to lonDSCN3608g awaited project.

Over the past 9 years in Guatemala, we have been privileged to help build 65 churches in the rural northern  part of the country. We provide a portion of the materials and work alongside the Guatemalans to build a place of worship. They invest in their own community by raising the rest of the funds and then helping us build their church which is an amazing partnership. We are blessed to have some great partners to work with there.

A Story: Guatemala Construction Trip

1 Apr

For nearly a decade Living Word Community Church has been actively involved in building churches among the Ixil People of northern Guatemala. It started with building a retaining wall for Pastor Jorge at Los Violettas Church in Nebaj back 9 years ago. This past month a team of 24 volunteers from Living Word traveled to Nebaj to help with another 8 churches. Whether it is setting columns at the beginning of a project, to pour foundations and concrete floors to finally putting a roof on the finished structure.

Ken Painter and Geoff Fix shared their story this past week with a video during the Sunday morning service. Watching this will give you a small taste of the joy that serving the Lord in Nebaj brings.
