What We Do

What We Do

Faith In Practice is committed to serving the poor of Guatemala through short-term medical mission trips that take an integrated approach to care that strives to reach those in the greatest need. Each year, more than 1,500 medical professionals and support personnel from across the United States and world travel to Guatemala, paying their own direct expenses to serve the poor through Faith In Practice. Each year, nearly 1,000 Guatemalan volunteers work beside our volunteers in this endeavor. Faith In Practice teams see more than 30,000 patients annually. Our volunteers serve through a variety of teams that are connected, providing a continuity of care in the context of short-term medical mission.

Why We Go

Since the very beginning, Faith In Practice has always sought to serve in response and in gratitude to the grace we have experienced in our own lives. We also experience the humble blessing that comes when all come together in a common purpose. In all things, we rely on the calling, wisdom and love of God. We truly believe that we could do nothing without God’s hand in this work.


The majority of the Guatemalan population lives in extreme poverty and has virtually no access to medical care. Over the years, Faith In Practice has developed a deep respect for the medical, clergy, and administrative Guatemalan staff as they seek to meet the needs of the poor. We are honored to join them in this mission.
