Ministry Description

The ministry of Word of Life in Guatemala began in 1998 under the leadership of Marcelo and Gabriela Diez and it is currently led by Oscar and Mónica Fuentes. Their staff has grown to 15 couples and 11 single missionaries. Today, Word of Life Guatemala has 41 Bible Club Programs of which 4 are held in Schools. We also have 3 College Groups and 2 Olympians programs.
During the year we have different activities like Sports Marathons, Medical trips, Camp Season; Youth Leader, Pastors and Women Conferences. As a means of sharing the gospel, we use dramas such as: Children's Show, "Born again for a Living Hope" and "Second Chance"( the later is an evangelistic drama born of Guatemalan creativity that present the reality faced by young people regarding abortion, homosexual tendencies, suicide, problems at home, etc.)

We also have the Discipleship Training Center (DTC, or CCM in Spanish) where students take a year to study the Bible and grow in three different areas: Life, Study and Ministry. We currently have 4 students attending the Bible Institute in Mexico and 6 at the Bible Institute in Argentina.

Country Description

Guatemala is a beautiful country whose name means "place of many trees", which alludes to the natural beauty of the country. With an area of 42,002 sq miles, it is home to almost 17 million people, it is the most populated state in Central America. The territory of modern Guatemala once formed the core of the Maya civilization, which extended across Mesoamerica.
Christianity continues to remain strong and vital for the life of Guatemalan society, but its composition has changed over generations of social and political unrest. Roman Catholicism, remains the dominant church.
