PFK Guatemala consists of weekly Kids Clubs in both Antigua and the nearby town of Ciudad Vieja, with around 250 children total attending these programs. These Kids Clubs have been so fruitful in the children’s lives that a women’s Bible study has developed in Antigua during the weekly PFK program for the mothers of these children. Over 30 women have been drawn to come each week and learn more about this Jesus who has poured out His love on their children and brought such hope and transformation to their lives.
PFK Guatemala has also been given the incredible gift of being able to teach English in the local public school system – using the Bible as curriculum! Currently, IGNITE interns and alumni teach in seven different schools impacting more than 1,900 children per week. This opportunity came about through the awareness and open doors created by a medical mission trip hosted at the Potter’s Field Center in 2014. In attendance at this clinic was the superintendent of the public schools, at the time when the government had just cut the funding for English in the school system. Seeing the interns and staff of PFM and the ministry firsthand through the medical clinic brought about the occasion for this new and incredibly fruitful venture.
The opportunities for the impact of PFK Guatemala are endless and PFM continues to stand in awe of the Lord as He is mightily at work on behalf of the needy and unreached in Guatemala.
