Exciting Wins in the Rancho Viejo Community

We are excited to share some recent updates from the Rancho Viejo community. As a country, Guatemala has been locked down since March of 2020. The country is beginning to open slowly and we are evaluating the best way to move forward in each community.

Over the last few months, there were a few projects that were able to take place across the Rancho Viejo community. With the help of our partner, Thrive, a water filter distribution took place that has impacted hundreds of households. With the support of partner churches, a construction project was completed for a vulnerable family. With the generosity of our partners, renovations were made on the community health clinic.

We are humbled for the support that has been shown for the people of Rancho Viejo. The community is encouraged by the progress that has been made in the last few weeks. Although community members have experienced much hardship over the last year, they are encouraged by the work that is continuing to be done.

Our local leadership is helping to identify the needs in each Guatemala community. As we move forward, please pray for the people of Rancho Viejo as a plan is established for reopening. In addition, pray for safety in the community throughout the rainy season. In the meantime, check out the photos from the recent happenings!

One Day At Church

One day at church I felt a calling or a nudge that God wanted me to serve in a different way. I looked through my church’s opportunities and as soon as I saw Kenya I felt a wash of joy flood over me. I applied that day and was overjoyed to hear shortly back that I had been accepted to go. Our church gave us the book “If You Really Want To Help” and from there I fell in love with what 410 was doing for the people of Kenya, especially after reading the story of Chris in Kahuria.

Learnings From Kiu, Kenya

Our partnership with Kiu community started way back in 2009 making it one of the first communities to partner with the 410 Bridge since its inception in Kenya in 2006. 

At the 410 Bridge, we work through the community leaders who ensure continuity of the community’s development even after graduation. During our partnership journey, we walk alongside indigenous community leaders and church leaders as they mobilize and unify the community to participate in their own development – shifting their perspectives and owning the solutions.
