Together We Can
see stable, loving families break the bonds of generational poverty!
Our Mission Is An Invitation
Jesus said go to the poor and feed them. He said go to the sick and heal them as He did here on the earth. He said go to the widows and orphans and take care of them. Jesus wants His good news shared to the nations, to the ends of the earth, and He calls His church to carry the torch. Among the Latin American people, this is our mission.
If you have a heart for those suffering from generational poverty and want to show His love through acts of service, your path may well intersect with ours. We invite you to walk with us in this amazing journey.
The Challenges our kids face
The children in Latin America face many challenges. Those affected by extreme poverty live in household that make less than the cost of a Starbucks coffee, less than $2.50 a day! Almost 10% of those kids are chronically malnourished. Their development potential is radically limited for their entire life. Many of these kids never finish primary school because their family needs them to work to earn money any way they can. 15 to 19 million girls have experienced forced sexual violence, other forced sexual acts and exploitation by the commercial sex trade.
Information from unicef’s report, Children in Latin America and the Caribbean Overview 2020
Children are not only more likely to be living in extreme poverty; the effects of poverty are most damaging to children. They are the worst off of the worst off – and the youngest children are the worst off of all, because the deprivations they suffer affect the development of their bodies and their minds.
– Anthony Lake, UNICEF Executive Director.

Our Current project needs
God Said Go Missions is committed to serving the “least of these” in Latin America, often in places where no one is serving, so they can experience the love of God for the first time. Together we can change lives!
We are in need of a 4×4 vehicle that is reliable and rugged enough to handle the remote locations where our teams serve. We are looking for a used late model well-maintained Land Rover.
The school up in El Dique, Escuintla is in bad shape and the teacher needs resources & textbooks. We would like to refurbish the school and provide with much needed resources, textbooks and supplies.
Malnourishment is a huge problem in El Dique and the surrounding areas. This program will build a kitchen and supply monthly provisions to feed breakfast to the children every morning before school.

Another impoverished community with 85 families (about 200 people) in Las Llaves, Chiquimulilla, Santa Rosa. We toured a small home made of corn stalks and bamboo where 37 people live with one outhouse (the bathroom.)

This merchant cries to know he can\’t work, \”I know there is a national emergency, this disease is not a game. I have children that need to eat, but I have nothing to feed them. I live on what I earn daily. I\’m sad, I don\’t know what I will feed my kids, they need to eat!\”
