We are honored to partner with "Sus Hijos" (click here for link), a non profit organization which is having a tremendous impact on the overwhelming orphan crisis in El Salvador. Sus Hijos was started by Kurt Ackermann, a North American missionary to El Salvador.
The main focus of Sus Hijos is to serve the Orphaned and Abandoned Children of El Salvador. Among the many projects, building homes which keep families together and feeding the homeless and communities are accomplished through this foundation.
His Children is a 501 C-3 in the United States to receive funds for projects taking place in El Salvador. 100% of the funds received are used for these projects.
El Salvador team members partner with Sus Hijos in serving in local orphanages. There are opportunities to serve in homes for girls, boys, and in special needs homes for children and adults. Some of our teams have been able to take orphanage residents to special events off the property (visiting water parks, etc). Teams also serve the homeless community in San Salvador. Unfortunately many of the teenagers who age out of the government centers end up on the streets. It is a privilege to prepare and deliver meals to the homeless population. There are also opportunities to build homes and to visit local communities. Team outreach schedules vary depending on the size, giftings and abilities of our team members.
Our El Salvador teams stay in the Sus Hijos "Missions House"...
Vista Hermosa Mission House can hold 35 plus persons. You will find a fully furnished and equipped home for your personal mission needs. This home is large with plenty of space to spread out.
It is a privilege to partner with three Christian organizations in the beautiful country of Guatemala. Our primary focus is to serve alongside Art and Lisa Camarena, American missionaries who have served in Guatemala for seventeen years. To read about Art and Lisa's ministry, visit their website at www.CamarenaGuatemala.com.
Called by the Lord, Jesus Christ, to serve in Guatemala, Central America, Art & Lisa have been in full-time Christian ministry there since 1996. Art & Lisa are Certified Representatives of Character First! based in Oklahoma City. Art & Lisa give live Character First! seminars to government leaders, business owners and professionals throughout the Republic of Guatemala, equipping them to have a government department, business or organization of good character. As representatives of the Institute of Basic Life Principles, they also teach Biblical principles to groups on DVD. Lisa enjoys teaching a weekly Lady’s Bible Study to the impoverished women in the area. For eight years they had a Boy’s Club, “Falcons of the Great King”, for the under-privileged boys in their town. Under the covering of Commission to Every Nation (CTEN) www.cten.org. Art & Lisa seek to share the gospel and Biblical principles with the nationals of Guatemala.
Our teams stay at Art and Lisa's gated home, nestled in the hills of San Lucas (outside of Antigua) and enjoy their warm hospitality and delicious home-made meals prepared by a wonderful Guatemalan cook. Throughout the week we will have opportunities to serve the families that the Camarenas know and love, visiting homes, hosting special events on the Camarena's property and participating in their weekly women's' Bible study fellowship.
We are also blessed to serve at the Casa Bernabe orphanage. To read more about Casa Bernabe, visit their website at www.foce.org. Casa Bernabe is a beautiful property which provides "homes" for their children. The children have house parents who care for them deeply and invest in their lives. Each child at Casa Bernabe thrives with opportunities in sports, musical training and most importantly, the hope of the gospel. The facility includes a school, church and medical clinic.
Teams will have the opportunity to participate in a one day project through Hands of Hope (www.hands-of-hope.com). Hands of Hope is a small medical clinic which has a tremendous impact on its' community. Hands of Hope provides free medical care in an impoverished community to families who previously received no medical treatment. Teams will purchase, build and deliver four beds to needy families. While some team members build beds, others will provide lice treatments in the clinic. It is truly an honor to partner with these amazing organizations in Guatemala!
