Guatemala’s Women Need Hope
Guatemala has the highest rate of femicide in the world. Every year hundreds of women are murdered by their husbands or partners, and often the perpetrators of the crimes are not sentenced. The Mordecai Project is doing something to stop this violence. We are now in partnership with a growing church in eastern Guatemala near the city of Zacapa. In this photo you can M2020-615 see Pastors Erik and Ana Ester Paz, who lead Iglesia Nueva Vision in the community of Patagala. In 2014 we purchased the land to build a women’s shelter. This year a team from Puerto Rico, Florida and South Dakota will be going to help construct the shelter. We will also be sending a team of trained counselors to help launch the ministry. Please consider helping us!
Thank you for your generous support to help the victims of gender-based oppression!
