Destination El Trebol, Terminal, Cerrito, Chimal, Zona 7, Villa Nueva, or dozens and dozens of other sites (no exaggeration!) around Guatemala City where many thousands of prostitutes are being exploited every day. We are so excited to finally roll out our new mobile ministry centre!!
Since the day some very kind missionary friends donated their school bus to us back in November 2016, it’s been a labour of love, and sometimes patient endurance, as we oversaw a metamorphosis that included three different body shops, a roof raise, many obstacles and learning experiences, countless hours, and, of course, the very generous support of our donors. But we’re delighted with the result of the 30-month journey and the whole new possibilities ahead!
This mobile centre will help us get into new areas where women are “working” and reach out to them with a safe place to come and hang out with us and our other Tamar’s Hope volunteers. Like with La Puerta, our fixed ministry centre, our goal is to use the space to extend relationship to sexually exploited women, share the hope of Jesus with them and help draw them towards healthy life alternatives.
We imagine girls playing games with us at the tables. A heart to heart chat perhaps on the sofa. A time to relax in a comfortable, secure environment. A chance to learn about education and other resources. I can already smell hot cinnamon rolls from the oven!
*note – we are still receiving donations for this project to cover the final $5000 of expenses*
