Impact Ministries works in the central part of Guatemala in the Alta and Baja Verapaz departments. Impact Ministries currently works in five different communities operating six Vida (Life) school campuses with over 1,500 children enrolled in the educational program.
Due to the global pandemic, Vida Schools are currently following the guidelines outlined by the Guatemalan athorities. At the present time this means students are in school on alternate days and being asked to mask and use face shields. There has been some temporary full closures when the "Covid alert Level" goes too high in a speciic area.
Support A Class
In 2015, Impact Ministries launched an exciting new program connecting supporters with classes. With God’s blessing, the Vida Life Schools have flourished and grown. Christ is changing lives as our students and their families learn to love Jesus Christ and worship the Lord. The fruit of this work has become evident as graduating students are emerging as Christian leaders in their communities.
The Support A Class program gives you the opportunity to join more than 1,000 child sponsors to raise a new generation of leaders.
Sponsor A Child
Sponsor A Child has been a foundational program enabling Impact Ministries to provide Christian education, nutrition, health care and an introduction to Jesus Christ to children in Guatemala since the mission began in 2000. We now have approximately 1,500 children receiving an education in our 10 Vida schools. We are thankful to each one of our sponsors who are making it possible for these children to attend school.
Impact Ministries staff consists of North American missionaries and national missionaries who are personally involved in each child’s life. We know each child and their family, and care for them on a daily basis. Our teachers, pastors and support staff provide godly role models for each child, to help them to know the Lord and to become all that He intends for them to be.
