Las Lomas Community Update

This update comes straight from our staff in Guatemala!

Community: Las Lomas, Union Cantinil, Huehuetenango 

Project/Programs Currently Running:  

  • Round tables with Guatemala Próspera. 
  • Organizational strengthening 

Latest update for the community as a whole: 

1) Round Tables with Guatemala Próspera, this is a 30 week program, following John C. Maxwell   book “La transformacion está en Mi”.   This discipleship program wants to look for values in Leaders and decision-makers in our communities.   Leaders from Las Lomas will be part of the first workshop September the 25th so later they can do round tables with 5 more people from their community so the impact will be bigger.  

2) Organizational strengthening, for more than two years, 410 bridge has been working alongside community leaders such as pastors, authorities, catholic leaders, women representative from Las Lomas. By strengthening them socially, organizationally and spiritually, we hope they can work on their own development and success as a community. 

Biggest challenge the community is facing, if any?  

There are a lot of improvements that need to be done in order to provide high quality education and healthcare.  The authorities of Guatemala have abandoned these communities. So, as 410 bridge, we need to be working really close to these communities, empowering and encouraging them.   

How can we be praying for the community?  

  • Pray for the community Leaders to be wise at making decisions.  
  • Pray for the population of Las Lomas, for their health and wellness.

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.
