Nilton and Kaylee serve in Guatemala City. They serve kids in Bethania, an under-resourced neighborhood, by hosting kids’ programs. From science classes, music classes, and “splash days,” the Soliers are encouraged to see the kids growing and learning. Someone from their local church recently donated eight huge garbage bags of sample medications to their ministry in Bethania. They organized and sorted about 700 different types of medications! It was a lot of work, but now they can offer these medications to the health center in Bethania, which they have been exploring how to work with. Pray that these medications will bless the community and that they can continue working with other organizations to serve Bethania well.
Nilton and Kaylee Solier serve kids and teenagers through a tutoring and after-school program in Bethania, a neighborhood of Guatemala City. In the past few months they have hosted science, art, and music workshops, as well as a trip to a local farm. Please pray for wisdom as they seek to holistically serve this community.

David and Diana Stoddard are missionaries with TEAM in Guatemala. Pray for a video project they are working on that uses puppets to teach children about sexual abuse. They would like to produce the first of four videos by mid-year but progress is slow, so please pray for the Lord’s leading in this endeavor, and ask Him to use it to help prevent sexual abuse and bring healing where needed.
