Your dollars will help fund service projects in Guatemala--the means by which we teach Guatemalan youth to express their love to God/others.
Our Mission: Bringing the light of Christ to Guatemala through Discipleship and Servanthood
Our Method: Encourage youth involvement with various service projects, demonstrating service to Christ through service to others
"Let your light shine before men, that they might see your good deeds and praise your father in heaven" Matthew 5:16
"Surely I tell you, whatever you did for the least of these brothers of mine, you did it for me" Matthew 25:40
"For Jews demand miraculous signs and Greeks ask for wisdom, but we preach about a crucified Christ, a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles...But God chose what the world thinks foolish to shame the wise, and God chose what the world thinks weak to shame the strong" 1 Corinthians 1:23, 25
Se Luz programs happen in Santiago Sacatepequez, Guatemala, and in other departments (states) of Guatemala, as the Holy Spirit leads.
Why Guatemala? The short answer is because that's where God led Kali to start Se Luz. The long answer is that Guatemalan youth need something positive in their life to keep them out of gangs and out of trouble. Serving their neighbor as Christ taught the disciples is a revolutionary way to stand out in the cultural context of Guatemala. Through servanthood and volunteerism, they are being lights for Christ in a spiritually dark land, sharing God's love in the community, and confronting cultural paradigms of 'wisdom' and 'power'.
