Hope for Tomorrow Guatemala – Pastor Noe Giron

Hope for Tomorrow

Hope for Tomorrow Guatemala, Inc. is a Christian mission organization that serves in the area around Teculutàn in the state of Zacapa, Guatemala. We have partnered with local Pastor Noè Gìron and his wife Glenda to bring physical and spiritual assistance to the people of Guatemala. Short term mission teams work alongside Guatemalan nationals and other mission groups to construct churches, drill fresh-water wells, provide medical care, feed the hungry, build needed facilities (orphanages, churches, homes, medical clinics) and share the gospel of Jesus Christ.We strive to encourage and raise up Guatemalan ministries to be self-sustaining. South Woodstock Baptist Church has sent short-term missions teams of adults and youth to Guatemala since 2013. Read our stories on our team Facebook page.
