It is our belief that every healthy local church should have an impact that is HERE, NEAR and FAR. We reach HERE (local), NEAR (the wider community) and FAR (to the ends of the earth). The community of Xeo in Guatemala is our primary effort towards having a FAR impact. Through all of the touch points we will have over our 8-10 year partnership, dozens and maybe hundreds of people from New Hope will be able to experience God’s Big Heart for the Big World.

In terms of the indigenous people of Guatemala, much of Central America has not enjoyed the stability that Americans have over the last 200+ years. As we have been blessed with resource, we want to share our resource with the people of Xeo so they have more opportunities for healthy transformation.
But, this is not a one way partnership. Rather, this is a reciprocal relationship through which we are transformed too. We anticipate that as we continue to build relationship with the people of XEO, we will see more clearly how God desires for us to change. Already, we are experiencing people who have little, but smile big. Over time we know we will be shaped by these lovely people!
