Our Mission

Our mission is to serve God by meeting the spiritual and physical needs of Guatemala's poorest children.  Uplifting Ministries provides a range of programs for these children.

We currently host two local youth groups at our mission home in Guazacapan. There we provide a safe and fun environment for the youth to meet,  with the goal to strengthen the youth to help them grow spiritually.  We also provide a monthly plan to evangelize and help the community through the youth.  In addition, our ministry conducts three weekly English classes for adults and children, and a feeding program for the homeless and alcoholics.  .

Another important activity of Uplifting Ministries is a sponsorship program.  We search for children without parents in the most needy areas of Santa Rosa Guatemala who need assistance.  When you sponsor a child your support covers the child's schooling, two medical checks a year, as well as ensure that they have food, shoes, and clothes. Even more importantly than the money though, all the kids are required to attend church once a week as well as meet at our local mission house for a lesson, activity, and to write their American sponsors a personal letter.  The ministry provides both Bible classes and English classes for the children. See Sponsorship FAQS for more information.
