Led by Pastor Martin in the mountains of Guatemala, Lluvias de Gracia (Showers of Grace) Church serves  its local community by teaching the next generation of Jesus-followers and disciple-makers. Through its children’s development center, Showers of Grace gives the children a robust education, including the good news of Jesus. We have a variety of opportunities for all ages to serve the children of Guatemala, from discipleship to community outreach to medical assistance. You can also choose to sponsor a child through Compassion International to help send them to school and grow their faith.

Our first trip will focus on Gospel outreach through a VBS-style fair, Bible training and a showing of the Jesus Film. With just a short 3 hour plane ride, you can be immersed in this exciting cultural experience! Lodging is motel-style rooms and transportation will be in buses/vans with a Guatemalan driver. This trip is a great way to experience your first international mission trip or to continue a love for missions.

Guatemala Sponsorships

Burnt Hickory is building a new relationship with Lluvias de Gracia (Showers of Grace) Church and Pastor Marvin in a rural village in Guatemala. We are working alongside Compassion International who is starting a Child Development Center on the site of Lluvias de Gracia Church. The church will aid in the teaching, feeding and growing over 200 children to help them and their families know God, grow in Christ and get out of poverty. Each child needs a sponsor. Burnt Hickory has the opportunity to build a relationship with these through sponsorship and help cover the cost of being a part of the Child Development Center. We will be taking several trips a year to minister with Pastor Marvin and Lluvias de Gracia Church. If you would like more information about this ministry contact
