Mission Moment

Serving God in Guatemala

Presbyterians Sharing supports Chantel Cole, an International Development Studies student who is on a ten-month work placement in Guatemala. Chantel is a Program Assistant with the community-based Maya-Mam Association for Research and Development, a PWS&D partner organization. AMMID’s work is dedicated to improving the lives of vulnerable people – particularly the Maya-Mam indigenous community – in the town of Comitancillo. This community, much like other indigenous communities in Guatemala, has historically been marginalized. Chantel shares, “The people of Comitancillo have been warm, kindhearted, great-spirited and supporting. They have opened up their little town to me and have made me feel very welcome here and for that, I am sincerely grateful.”
