Mobile Medical Mercy Mission Bus for Guatemala

Lutheran Church of Guatemala and Child Beyond International

nullReverend-doctor Elry Orozco explains how to use medicine properly to a local Guatemalan woman. Simple medicines we take for granted in the States are rare and expensive for many Guatemalans. 

While Guatemala is a beautiful country, many people suffer in extreme poverty. Over 50% of the children are malnourished and have no access to any form of medical or dental care. Most have no pre-natal or post-natal care and often die from preventable diseases. Immanuel Lutheran Church, Hood River, Oregon and the Lutheran Church of Guatemala have partnered together to share God’s physical and spiritual healing with as many souls as possible. They have developed a network of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod partner churches to send medical professionals and mission teams to Guatemala on short term medical mission trips. In order to reach these isolated villages they need the right tool, namely a Mobile Medical Mercy Mission Bus. The funds will be used to purchase and retrofit a bus with medical equipment. Bible school equipment will also be purchased enabling the teams to heal both the physical and spiritual needs of the Guatemalan children. While the physicians tend to their physical needs, the ministers and lay leaders go into the villages and set up bible classes, VBS and worship services. Child Beyond International will continue to financially support this ministry.  

WHEREAS, our Lord Jesus in His Holy Word has declared that whatever we do for the least of His brothers and sisters, we do for Him; and
WHEREAS, bringing spiritual and physical healing in His name to His desperately poor but beloved people of Guatemala honors His declaration and fulfills His Great Commission; and
WHEREAS, Immanuel Lutheran Church, Hood River, Oregon's Guatemala mission non-profit organization, Immanuel Agape Ministries (doing business as Child Beyond International) is in mission partnership with the Lutheran Church of Guatemala (LCG) and has the full approval of this grant by the LCG Bishop, Rev. Abdiel Orozco, a medical doctor himself; therefore be it
RESOLVED, that the delegates gathered at the 2019 Lutheran Women's Missionary League Convention in Mobile, Alabama, vote the sum of $100,000 to fund the Mobile Medical Mercy Mission Bus for Guatemala.

nullWe will purchase this make and model of a used low mileage Blue Bird school bus to convert it  into our Mobile Medical Mercy Mission Bus for Guatemala.
nullA nearby public school welcomes our missionaries to share the Gospel during the medical clinic. Most Guatemalan schools are open to our mission teams sharing Jesus and His love. God is amazing!
