Welcome

 

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 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.

CORONA VIRUS UPDATE IN GUATEMALA

We continue to have major restrictions to move around. We finally got to the point where we did have cases of COVID in our part of Guatemala; although it seems to be tapering off with no new cases recently and few isolated deaths in our region…thankfully! Public transportation is operating at 50% but the airport still has not resumed their normal flights. We still wear masks, have our temperatures taken in most public places, use hand gel and walking over mats that have been moistened with bleach with some places not allowing people over 60 to enter. As of August 27, 2020, Guatemala has had 70,714 confirmed cases with 2,662 deaths and 58,783 people who recuperated. We are still considered to be in the color “red” which puts us on high alert. It has caused me problems in not being allowed to go into the mall, where my bank is located. I have had to take someone else with me to do banking recently but thankfully the bank is working with me on this. I missed my US trip in March and now have missed my second planned trip in August. I’m still “hoping” that things will open up during September that will allow me to travel. All of our 2020 teams for the remainder of the year have been cancelled. We are hopeful that travel will resume and not cause problems for teams that are scheduled for 2021.
