About Guatemala missions

Grace partners with Bethel Ministries, a ministry headquartered in Guatemala, to build homes, visit needy families in their homes, and distribute wheelchairs while in rural Guatemala.

While on-site the disabled are given new wheelchairs, as well as canes and crutches, and then they are prayed for by pastors of local churches before they are sent on their way.

Teams also build metal homes for families. These homes typically include a fuel-efficient wood stove, triple bunk beds and pouring a concrete floor.

The team also distributes food, clothes and blankets throughout the week as they visit the poor, widowed, and orphaned in rural villages.

The Bethel team in Guatemala


Ben and Emily

Benjamin and Emily moved to Guatemala at the end of 2016 to work full time with Bethel. They spend most of their time out on the field with our missions teams who build houses, give out food and clothes, and do wheelchair distributions. Benjamin has now become a director of BMI, and Emily oversees communications for BMI.

Nick and Izzy

Nicholas and Elizabeth Frey had partnered with BMI for five years by leading teams down here, before making the big leap to move down and work with BMI full time in 2018. They have been a valuable asset to our team by being extremely hard-working and relational - making amazing connections with our volunteers and those whom we serve.

"In the midst of this incredible hardship, we saw some people with an overwhelming faith in God. Some had Bibles, some didn’t, some could read, some couldn’t, but Jesus is most certainly in the very heart of these people’s situation. "
