One Way Guatemala
Normally, OWG hosts more than 100 outreaches a year with the help of several short-term missions teams from the U.S. and from Guatemala With the COVID crisis group events have been restricted. Because of the great need across the country we are focusing on 1) Compassion ministries to provide emergency food relief to at risk people. As have late June, One Way has hosted about 70 food outreaches that has impacted about 3,000 families. Those efforts continue. 2) Contact ministries to encourage pastors and leaders who welcome prayer, social connection, encouragement and sometimes counsel. 3) Virtual Training ministries via zoom style media.
Project Protect Me
will continue to be a focus as we train and encourage church and school leaders to project children from human trafficking.
Large group meetings are not permitted, but we continue contact with kids as we are able. Unfortunately, most do not have access to phone or internet. However, through some of the ministry leaders who live near the children we are able to have some connection. We have provided two emergency food distributions into those areas where children from Planet Kids live. We estimate we have provided about 4000 pounds of food there. We don't know when Planet Kids or any large group meetings will be allowed. We're guessing it will be sometime early 2021.
Shoes for Adela
Through Shoes for Adela projects provides new shoes and school supplies to needy kids. We are working towards a major distribution in December of 2020 as children plan to return to school again early in January 2021.
Junior Bible Quiz / Bible Tournament
We look forward to reopening our JBQ / Bible Tournament in Planet Kids once group meetings are allowed. Currently, we are connecting with a few few leaders around the country to help them prepare for a JBQ effort in their church.
Our ministries are possible without the support and prayers from faithful ministry partners.
