1. Santo Tomás Milpas Altas
Literally “Saint Thomas of the Tall Cornstalks,” this small agricultural town is the home of Saber y Gracia (Wisdom and Grace) Christian School. Because of this phenomenal ministry, this impoverished community is being transformed.
2. Volcán de Agua
This beautiful mountain dominates the landscape around the old colonial city of Antigua. Over 12,000 feet high, the volcano has become a fixture in paintings of the town and hosts many (literally) breathtaking views from its summit.
3. Guatemala City
With a reputation for theft and violence, the capital of Guatemala is also the economic center of the country. It is home to Casa de Dios, a megachurch with over 25,000 attendees and the largest Guatemalan flag in the country.
Once the Spanish colonial capital of Central America, Antigua is a picturesque tourist destination with cobblestone streets, a bustling market, and crumbling historic buildings from the 17th and 18th centuries.
5. Lake Atitlán
This beautiful volcanic lake is the deepest in Central America. Villages on its shores are often built high above the water due to the lake’s ever-changing height. Many unwitting hotel and restaurant owners have watched in horror as the water slowly swallowed up their businesses.
