A team of 13 from World Outreach Church joined ASELSI for a week of sharing the love of Christ.

Their visit included home visits where they sat down with local families and learned about life here in Chichicastenango and prayed with the families as they gave them a basket of food items to help with their daily needs.

The team also prayed for patients at the national hospital about 30 minutes down the road where patients receive care in a medical system that doesn’t always have the resources to give them what they need.

The team held a medical clinic at churches where ASELSI is partnering to reach the communities of Chuabaj and Chicua I through the establishment of a local outreach with the church there. This is part of the ongoing vision ASELSI has to equip churches to reach out in and beyond their own communities.

With the team working together with a Guatemalan crew they worked on a construction projects in the village and at ASELSI.

Thank you World Outreach Church team for your heart for the people of Guatemala!

A ministry called Water Mission is helping provide pure water to thirsty families across the globe.
In southern Mexico, Water Mission leaders realized that water is not enough. These communities need leaders with a clear understanding of God's Word to bring about lasting change. They need solid Biblical training along with the water projects.
That's where ASELSI got involved. Using the ASELSI courses that have been developed over the past 20 years ASELSI is helping this ministry to train leaders who put God's Word into action to transform their lives, families and communities.
Classes recently opened in San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico with 34 students who are involved in the water projects and are now building a strong foundation in the Word of God.This is one more example of how God is partnering ASELSI with other ministries to equip, empower, and enable the church for action.
Pray for these Mexican believers who are learning and growing and for the ASELSI teachers who travel more than eight hours to San Cristobal de Las Casas to teach the courses each month.

Continued expansion of ASELSI's Bible Training is possible through the generous support of people like you. Consider becoming a monthly partner with an scheduled donation to help us continue equipping, empowering and activating the Church.  Donate Here.

See the story of a man whose leg was healed after 20 years of having to use an insert to level his legs because of an accident. Look what the Lord has done!

Dora (Doris) Marina Mazariegos Bámaca de Dubon, a founding member of the ASELSI board of directors, died Tuesday, March 26 after fighting cancer. She was 62.

Born December 21, 1956, Doris was known for her love for people, prayer, and for reaching out to her neighbors.

She poured her life into a squatters’ village on the edge of the Guatemalan capital and founded a ministry called Amar Es Servir (To Love Is To Serve) there. She started with food distribution and evangelism but developed the ministry into a day school for the children of the slums to get a start on education and a foundation of faith. Hundreds of children have attended this school over the 20 years she ministered there.

As a member of the ASELSI board, Doris was a faithful prayer warrior for the ministry of ASELSI and its staff. She traveled to teach at Bible School extensions in Mexico and participated in the annual ASELSI conference. Her ready laugh and strong vision drew others along with her as she encouraged, taught, and inspired.

“We have a calling to love people and transform lives,” she once said during an interview for the book Libre Soy that told part of her story.  That’s pretty much what Doris’ life was about—loving people and helping transform their situation spiritually and educationally.

In a joint statement from ASELSI Founders, John and Sharon Harvey, they wrote of Doris, “We will miss her joyful spirit, devotion to her Lord and her great heart for the poor and needy. She has exemplified God's heart and always shared a word of encouragement and a Word of the Lord to whoever she met.”

Doris served as the secretary of the ASELSI board and was one of the original board members who helped ASELSI begin and grow as a ministry.

“Doris was a person characterized by her sincere love, joy, and total confidence in God,”recalled Emanuel, director of ASELSI. “She had a profound love for her family, a passion to serve God and great love for the children and families in Nuevo Amanecer where she ministered.”

Please join the ASELSI staff in praying for the Dubon family and the Amar Es Servir ministry.
