Please Pray! Remote, War-torn Village in Guatemala Hosts the GLS for First Time

Pastor Luis Pinto in Guatemala creates and leads strategies along with his team for a whole region: Latin America & the Caribbean. He has one purpose—to let people know what The Global Leadership Summit is and how God uses it to change lives, communities, cities and countries through healthy leadership. He leads a Vida Real TV Church site in Guatemala City.

Luis shares what is happening in Nebaj, a first time GLS site in Guatemala:

Nebaj is located in the remote Guatemalan highlands, an area classified by the military as isolated and accessible to the guerrillas during an internal 40+ year war. Many of the villages and communities are identified as “red” and targeted for annihilation.

The aftermath of war, pain, lack of forgiveness and distrust are evident.

But the people are embracing the upcoming GLS with joy and hope.

“I talked with the mayor of Nebaj yesterday,” said Luis. “He has high expectations of the GLS for the first time in this region. We expect 200 to attend—many of them from other communities in the mountains. There will be teachers, community leaders, agricultural business people, pastors and others.

Please pray! We, as the Guatemalan team, are praying people who attend the GLS experience hope, healing in their souls and a better future.
