Over the past year or so, this blog has given lots of overage to the explosive growth of Orthodoxy in Guatemala. With that growth comes the possibility that Orthodox Christianity will blossom not only in Guatemala but also throughout Latin America, and among Spanish speakers living in the United States. There are a number of new events and resources that are, little by little, helping to make that continuing growth a reality.
Finally, OCMC is sponsoring a short-term mission team to Guatemala for this coming summer. OCMC has sponsored a Guatemala team for many years, sending short-term missionaries to the Orthodox orphanage in Guatemala City, but this is the first time that the team will instead be traveling to the Mayan communities in the highlands of Guatemala. The team will work in the same communities that I visited last summer and featured in this blog. More info is available here.
