Missions in Guatemala

"Preach the Word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching."


On December 29th, the community we serve suffered a tragic fire sparked by children tossing a homemade firework into the home of hermana Vicky which provoked the explosion of a propane tank. The ensuing fire engulfed dwelling after dwelling and left 35 families (nearly 100 adults and 200+ children) homeless. Unlike in the United States, there is absolutely no social safety-net in Guatemala and everyone is left to fend for themselves. Thankfully, the members of Cristo Mi Redentor have stepped in to help in serving hot meals while also providing blankets and diapers. However, our congregation  can only do so much. There are still a great many needs. Please keep our family members in your prayers and, if possible, make a donation to our relief fund via our PayPal account. Or contact Rev. Dr. Jonathan Smith at Redeemer Anglican, Orlando for more information.     [email protected]     407-598-0878

Our beloved Brothers & Sisters, we are still fighting for our kids within the Guatemala City dump because they deserve all that we can do to help. And the Lord we confess calls upon us to help the widow and the orphan (James 1:27). Join with us in sharing the joy as we look for those willing to sponsor a child for the upcoming year.

Would you be willing to minister to a group of people that lives in a city dump? What if it also meant constantly putting your life at risk because of crime? And what if you did this in Guatemala? In this episode, I sit down with Pastor Dana Craft, founder of A Mission Challenge. Dana and his wife, Damaris, have dedicated their lives to reaching the poorest of the poor in Guatemala’s City Dump with the gospel.

To better understand why this topic matters, Dana and Jonathan discuss the hardships the people in Guatemala’s city dump face day in and day out. You will gain perspective on the challenges associated with ministering to these people. You will also hear how God uniquely shaped Dana’s life by taking him through an incredible life-threatening struggle only to turn his career into a completely different direction.
