Love Guatemala

Located about 45 minutes outside of Guatemala City in an area of extreme poverty, Love Guatemala began as a vision by a Guatemalan couple, Carlos and Thelma Lopez, to love their community through the gift of art. They began the art school with no resources and just 3 students. Through the continued support of Indy Metro Church and the dream of a young girl they also started a cooking school and later a carpentry school. These schools later formed what is now called Love Guatemala.

What started as a trip from our church in 2009 turned into a great movement of people across the country coming alongside to support, encourage and fuel some very burdened people in Guatemala to love their community. Love Guatemala has also added an English School and is now in a new 10,500 square foot facility which gives them the ability to continue to expand and start new vocational schools.

In 2012, we sent Pastor Ben Kunkel and his family to serve full-time in Guatemala. Each year, we send several teams from Indy Metro on week-long missions trips to serve the Love Guatemala team in Magdalena.

Love Guatemala

As you may have seen before, there has been new construction at Love Guatemala! Walls were built so that the previously built multipurpose area could be used as another larger classroom to accommodate the new safety measures for the next year!

We are so thrilled to have this great blessing so that classes will be able to continue even as the regulations are different next year!

You can help with important projects like this one by donating during Invest 2020! Donations will help the staff continue to spread the Gospel as well as preparing for these new transitions!
