Distribution Partner Profile
Faith in Practice has headquarters in Antigua, and distributions occur there as well as during week long mission trips in rural areas around the country. These trips include wheelchair clinics that serve areas with the greatest need; Faith in Practice typically finds a facility such as a school or church in which to hold the distribution. In addition to Antigua, the areas served include Petén, Retalhuleu, Santa Rosa, El Progresso, Jalapa, Totonicapán, and Quiche.
Faith in Practice is a faith-based FWM partner and Kingdom-building is central to its organizational identity; wheelchair recipients can pray with distribution teams or be prayed over, and receive the Christian message. Over the past 3 years, over 4,600 wheelchairs have been sent to Faith in Practice in Guatemala. This is a strong, faith-based FWM partner with whom we are blessed to work.
