"With one kind gesture you can change a life. One person at a time, we can change the world." (Dr. Steve Maraboli)
Who Are We?
Moving Mountains is a Christian organization comprised primarily of members from several local churches in Western Pennsylvania, and also includes volunteers from across the US. Our team of forty to fifty individuals commit a week out of their summers to travel to Guatemala to serve children and their families living in extreme poverty. We work in the village of Santa Maria de Jesus, in the Sacatepéquez region of Guatemala. A city of approximately 50,000, it ranks as one of the highest in chronic malnutrition, stunted growth, infant mortality, and illiteracy in Central America.
What Do We Do?
Our volunteers will share the Love of Christ while working to provide immediate improvements to the health and well-being of families. Our teams/projects include: Roofing Crews, Concrete Floor Crews, Water Tank Crews, Bunk Bed Construction, Vacation Bible School for over 200 children, Humanitarian Aide efforts, and Home Visits to shut-ins for health-checks and prayer.
We are now preparing for the Moving Mountains Mission to Guatemala 2020. Online applications will begin being accepted in September.
