Don & Sandra
Don and Sandra have been involved with Impact Ministries in Guatemala since 2007. They saw first hand the life changing work God was doing there through Christian education, church planting, healthcare, and feeding hungry children.
Initially they were team leaders and served as guest house and team hosts. They were also part of the initial committee that dreamed up and developed the plans for orphan care. Sandra was also able to join the Engineering International Ministries Canada Team and completed the survey and design for the Foundation of Life Children's Home.
In July 2015, Don and Sandra accepted the role as the Operations and Financial Managers for Impact Ministries Canada. The ministry is based in Tactic, Guatemala.
Impact Ministries serves over 1,600 students in Guatemala through 10 Vida school programs, providing children with an education, encouraging their spiritual development, and meeting their physical needs. The ministry has grown to include a meal program, a medical/dental clinic, church plants, various outreach and community development projects including a children’s home for abandoned babies. In addition to serving Guatemalans, Impact Ministries also impacts North American Christians for world missions by integrating short-term mission teams into our ministry. From youth groups to seniors, from mechanics to medical teams, groups have worked alongside Impact Ministries in Guatemala.
Of course, Covid has impacted various aspects of our ministry, and we have moved into relief mode including food hamper distributions to needy families.
