Helping Guatemala One Life At A Time

Working together for a better tomorrow

Servant Ministries

Servant Ministries is located on the eastern side of Guatemala, in a very remote area known for its poverty, oppression, violence, and hopelessness. It was founded by missionary, Nancy Sheldon with the  commitment to the fulfillment of the “Great Commission.” 

Servant Ministries is a multifaceted holistic ministry which seeks to equally address physical needs with the eternal reality. To accomplish this Servant Ministries focuses on: Embrace child nutritional sponsorship, school supplies sponsorship, medical/dental clinics, short-term mission teams, church planting, evangelism, Bible institute,  and community projects. The main objective of all ministry is always to express the Gospel, love, and grace of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Latest Updates

December is my favorite month of the year to have with our Embrace children. We celebrate Christmas in a big way and thanks to the generosity of our amazing sponsors; no one went home empty handed.
On Tuesday, January 17th, we had our inauguration of the new clinic site The new clinic location is right on the main highway and gives much more visibility for people to know that we are there. We had a special celebration to mark this new step in our medical and dental outreach that we offer to this region in Guatemala.
We have had two medical clinic teams during the month of January. Both teams found some special cases that we would love to do follow up on and are in the process of fundraising to do just that.
We completed 4 more projects, to provide better housing for families. This brings us to a total of 50 projects done during 2022.

What Short-Term Volunteers Say

Some of the best and most meaningful times of my life have been treating the poorest of the poor in the mountains of Guatemala. I have been blessed to have been able to serve these special people in some small way.

One of my favorite parts of my short-term trip was spending time with an Embrace child. This opportunity helped me realize that speaking the same language isn't important and that all children respond to love.
