I was losing my visión when I first came to ASELSI. I was here to get surgery, but, during the evaluation, the medical staff discovered that I had high blood pressure.

I didn’t know anything about that because I’d never visited a doctor before. I didn’t know what high blood pressure meant, but they told me it could be life-threatening if we didn't do something

The ASELSI Clinic explained about this disease and gave me treatment. After the surgery on my eyes, the Father’s Heart Clinic has continued helping me with medicine and checkups.

Now I have a normal life and I can work and earn money for my family.

Thanks to ASELSI and the help they gave me I have a healthy life and have my visión back!

Join ASELSI for #GivingTuesday -- a global giving movement – on November 27.

In America Thanksgiving Day is a time to give thanks to God for His provision and blessings, but many times this thankfulness soon gets lost in the rush of special sales that kick off the Christmas shopping season.

That’s where Giving Tuesday comes in! It’s the 1st Tuesday after Thanksgiving and helps us all focus on how we can give back to help others, either through financial donations or by giving our time or talents to help others.

All year long, ASELSI is reaching out to help the poor, sick, disabled, blind, and train leaders who impact their communities for good. On December 6th we have a special event to tell the story of Christ’s coming and celebrate Christmas with hundreds of children while providing them with school supplies that will help them stay in school when the new school year starts in January 2019.  

We are thankful that people just like you help make this and many other outreaches possible by sharing your time, talents and treasure with us. Please consider a donation to help us continue reaching out to train leaders and care for the sick and suffering.

Donations are made through Christian Fellowship Church's PushPay® page.

On Saturday, October 20, over 150 leaders of youth and children’s ministries gathered at ASELSI for a day of training, encouragement and new ideas for sharing old truths.

Check out the video above to see what it was like!

With four challenging speakers focused on the areas of youth and children’s ministries those who attended received current information on how to continue reaching the new generation with the Christ.

“Everything was very focused on the church--on the importance of the church to be relevant to the next generation,” ASELSI Director Emanuel Perez said of the conference. “We are very excited because we see that God continues allowing us to equip the people to empower them to enable them…to share with the church in Guatemala.”

The Relevant Conference is part of ASELSI’s efforts to equip leaders with the understanding, tools and encouragement they need to transform lives with the Word of God. The annual conference is held on October 20 each year.

I was born prematurely and my father abandoned my mother and I because he saw that I wasn’t normal.

My mommy worked hard to care for me and she brought me to ASELSI where I get physical therapy.

At one point my mother was very depressed because we didn’t have money to survive and we were completely alone.

We came to a medical appointment that changed our lives. At the appointment the clinic staff prayed for us. My mommy was so depressed at that point that she was ready to abandon me, but after being encouraged at ASELSI she left with the desire to keep going, and she did.

Now, I am improving and I am studying at a public school with my mom at my side to help me. I now have the best grades in my school!

Domingo Ajanel stepped into eternity with his Lord and Savior after a lengthy battle with and complications from diabetes on October 10.

Even while in ailing health and unable to see, Domingo never stopped bringing people closer to Christ. On October 10, Domingo invited friends over to his home where the joined him singing praises to his Lord Jesus Christ. After the service, he rested on his bed and woke up with Christ.

He was 48 years old and is survived by his wife and their seven children ages 12 to 24.  He will be deeply missed. Please pray for his family as they mourn his loss and carry on his legacy.

Domingo was one of the early graduates from ASELSI’s extension program graduating with the first class in Nebaj in 1998. He continued training through all four levels of ASELSI’s Bible education program and was the first to graduate from ASELSI’s bridge program with an accredited degree from Mariano Gálvez University.

He served as the regional coordinator for ASELSI’s extension training program in the Ixil Triangle and was a key promoter of expanding ASELSI’s programs in the Nebaj region. Domingo left a legacy in Nebaj as an example of a father, student, teacher, friend, and pastor to the 11 churches he supervised in the region, the dozens of students under his care, and the many people he inspired to study and live God’s Word.

During his funeral the street was filled with people who came to honor and remember his life and legacy.

According to long-time friend and co-worker in the ministry Dr. Mike McComb, the funeral was well attended with representatives from many churches, the community and people who knew Domingo.

“There was sadness for the family,” McComb said, “But it was a celebration of a life well lived for the Lord.”  

Domingo’s legacy of Bible training among the Ixil people will not end, but those he trained up will continue training others.

II Timothy 2:2 “And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others.”
