Nueva Concepcion, Guatemala
In Guatemala, GoServ Global works with Mark and Kelly Lee who are GoServ Global missionaries to the community of Nueva Concepcion, located in the southwest corner of Guatemala. The focus of this project is the planting of a church (the first evangelical free church in the country) and Christian school, and ministering to the neglected field workers and their families through education and biblical truth.
The land for this project has been purchased and the church/school is in the process of being built. This building will be completed with the help of short-term missions teams coming down and lending support. Teams will work side by side with the people who will be receiving and using this facility.
Mark and Kelly Lee, Guatemala Directors
For the past 5 years, Mark has led mission trips to Guatemala through Grace E-Free Church in Elkader, IA where he used to serve as senior pastor. In 2014, Mark joined GoServ Global as the Peru Director, where he led mission teams to build Hidden Creeks Bible Camp out of the Safe T Home in Iquitos. But he always had a heart for Guatemala. Mark is excited to plant the church and school and once again serve as a fulltime pastor as he moves his wife, Kelly, and his son to Guatemala. Mark and Kelly raise 100% of their faith-based personal support.

6. Centre de VIE Church
Led by Pastor Rivenson Dige, the Centre de VIE Church is located in downtown Les Cayes and is averaging 400 parishioners on a given Sunday! This church is a light in a very dark place where voodoo is so prevalent.
7. Dental Clinic
Go Serv Global completed the state-of-the-art Dental Clinic in 2015 and the first dental teams served the first patients late in the year. One of the first patients was a boy who arrived with a life-threatening infection from untreated dental needs. The dental team extracted four teeth and provided much-needed antibiotics and by the time the team headed back to the US, he was a different boy.
8. Medical Clinic
Haitian Dr. Jean Yves Glaud as well as two staff nurses run the medical clinic that serves the Consolation Center and surrounding area. Approximately 30 patients are seen weekly.
9. UPCOMING PROJECTS
- Building a Recording Studio to record Christian music in Haitian creole that can be distributed for free throughout Haiti.
- Building a Birthing Center near Camp Perrin where the John 3:16 Village is located.
