Guatemala Missions Auction

Our team is made up of men and women from several local churches in the Springfield and surrounding counties. We have been serving in Guatemala thru an organization called Hope of Life International ( for the last 7 years. We have been as small as a 3 person team and as large as 50. We go to Guatemala approximately once a year.

Over the years we have distributed clothing, shoes, medical supplies, food, personal hygiene items, clean drinking bottles, built a home, helped other teams build homes and drilled a well. This year we adopted a village (St. Nicholas) of approximately 100 families. This was a village that their well broke and they could not get any help from the government. God led the way and we were able to drill that well. We have made a commitment to St. Nicholas for the next 3 years. And we are in prayer that by 2016 we can build them a church. Our plans for 2015 are to take a full team down this coming summer and in October take a team of ladies down. Our ladies are planning on teaching the women in the villages how to sew and also how to make bracelets. This would help them bring in an income for their families. Please prayerfully consider our team when you purchase items. We are a non-profit group through Grace Missionary Baptist Church so if you want to make a donation instead of purchasing an item, we would be happy to send you a receipt for tax purposes.

This online auction begins on November 29th and ends on December 9th at 9:00 pm. A minimum bid will be set for each item and subsequent bids must be in $1.00 increments. No bids under minimum will be accepted. All bids will be posted in the comment line. All proceeds will go towards the Guatemala Missions Team. The individual team member that donated the item will receive full credit for the sale. The highest bidder will be notified on December 10th. You will have until December 17th to give your payment to Debbie Brown in either cash or check form. When payment has been received, I will contact you to make arrangements for pick up. I am located in Springfield. If the item is not paid for, the second highest bidder will be contacted. All sales are final. You may contact me at (937) 215-0400 with any questions. Thank you for helping us be the hands and feet of Jesus.

God Bless, Debbie Brown, Site Administrator
