Loma Del Viento

One of the best ways to counter the concerns that we have for the plight of our world is to get busy making a difference. One of the most impoverished areas in the world is found in the mountainous region of Guatemala. The people in these remote villages have been nicknamed “the forgotten people.” Most of these villages have limited water sources, serious health issues from malnutrition, limited education and various other issues that are tied directly to poverty.  

In 2016, LFCN adopted one of these remote villages in Zacapa, Guatemala. Loma Del Viento is a village that has nearly 1,000 residents. An estimated 600 of these residents are children. The LFCN “Village Transformation” is a partnership with two humanitarian organizations: World Help & Hope of Life. As a local church, we are committed to transforming this community with the compassion that comes from Jesus.  

In December of 2016, our first team of 25 from LFCN arrived in Loma Del Viento. It was on this trip that we hosted wellness clinics, presented a VBS for the children, installed a new school playground, upgraded the school’s restrooms, and dedicated a water well that can be used by the entire village.  

We are in the planning stages of sending another team in December of 2017 and a third team in 2018. If you have questions about LFCN Village Transformation simply email us.
