Alejandro & Kathryn Ortiz Support

Support the Ortiz family and their ministry in Cubulco!

Alejandro & Kathryn, and their four children serve the Mayan Achi community in Cubulco, Guatemala. Alejandro is originally from this community and still has family living in the area. In the late '90s, he worked in church planting, Bible translation, community development, literacy, and a weekly Christian radio program in the local Achi language. During that time, Alejandro met Kathryn, the daughter of missionaries working in the area. After ten years, he and his family moved to Canada, where he volunteered with a local mission outreach for seasonal migrant workers and participated in the mission committee of his home church.

After a time of prayerful discernment, the Ortiz family believed that God was leading them back to serve the Achi people of Cubulco. They now live in this beautiful but needy area that is part of 'the dry corridor' - a geographical area of Central America that has seen many people attempt to migrate North to survive. Alejandro and Kathryn are convinced that with appropriate projects that offer food security and employment opportunities, the community can thrive holistically under God's blessing. Eventually, through community projects, Kathryn will work in maternity health with local midwives and women empowerment.

They continue to focus on the chicken project as an initiative to combat hunger and contribute to food security for several families around Cubulco. (Please specify if your donation is for the chicken project.)
