Servant Ministries, located on the eastern side of Guatemala , was founded by missionary, Nancy Sheldon. This ministry is committed to the fulfillment of the "Great Commission." Servant Ministries is found in a very remote part of Guatemala; a region known for its poverty, oppression, violence, and hopelessness.

Though Servant Ministries is a multifaceted ministry, its main objective is always to express the love and grace of the Lord Jesus Christ. This is accomplished through: Evangelism, Church Planting, Bible Institute, Short Term Mission Teams, as well as Dental and Medical Clinics, Community Projects and Embrace, a children's sponsorship program.

Special Announcement

 Have you heard of Amazon Smile? It is a program under Amazon that allows you to select a non-profit organization that you would like to support. You go into the website and sign up and then amazon gives a very small donation (percentage) off of every order that you place with amazon. I think that most of us order from amazon; some more than others😊! It is a one-time thing to do and then it will happen automatically with every order you place. Please take the time to sign up and look for Servant Ministries CA Inc and select it. Drop me a line if you get signed up. It is a way to support missions that will cost you nothing; just a few minutes to get signed up!

We have been working on a new video to use for people that come on short term teams. We included a number of personal comments and photos of people who were impacted by their experience. We have listed some of these on our webpage as well. You can read these testimonies by clicking the button below. I think you will enjoy the comments.

As of June 29, 2020, we have had 16,930 cases of the Corona Virus, 727 deaths and 3152 people who have recovered. We continue to have our 11-hour daily curfews from 6pm-5am. Public transportation is still closed everywhere. In the capital and surrounding areas, where there are more cases of the virus; they have now implemented restricted usage of private vehicle. Going by license plates and using “odd and even” numbers, each have 3 days to circulate. The weekend lock down has been reinitiated but only for Sunday; where no one is allowed out. We cannot travel outside of our department (county). Our churches and businesses, other than essential services, are still closed. No one goes out with masks and observing other social distancing rules. Children have been restricted to their homes for over 3 months! 

We are seeing many secondary affects from the Corona Virus, that are actually causing more problems than the actual virus. I know that the economy has been affected in many parts of the world, but it is very prominent in Guatemala. The people that we mostly work with, up in the mountain villages, live from hand to mouth. People look for work, for at least a few days each week; in order to buy the food that their family needs to eat. Even town people live from payday to payday; it is unusual for even town people to have a bank account with any reserves. Being unable to work for over 3 months now has left a lot of actual hungry people. People put out a “white flag” to indicate that they have no food left for their family. Others stand along the highway with their white flags to also indicate their status. Thankfully many private institutions are doing something to reach out to this need. Servant Ministries is also doing what we can and coordinating with the local Health Departments to know what areas are the hardest hit. We are taking out truckloads of basic food (corn, beans and salt) to distribute in different villages and also weighing children and evaluating their nutritional levels to see if we can register some in our Embrace program; to offer long term assistance. We have taken food to the 11 communities where we have churches planted and our pastors are distributing it amongst their congregations and to the needy in their communities. Special thanks to people who have been led to send in financial support that has allowed us to buy the food to distribute. If you want to help us continue to provide this food, or can offer Embrace sponsorship for the malnourished children that we are finding; please communicate with me at
