Outreach

Clubhouse defines Outreach as the tool designed to meet an immediate physical need to help earn the right to share the Spiritual need. We do this in many different ways. In everything we do it is the desire to share Christ with each person we are in contact with.

Vacation Bible School

Clubhouse has worked for years to build strong relationships in over 30 public schools throughout the Guatemala City, Pacaya, and Antigua areas. Each year we see over 30,000 students through our VBS programs. This is one of many ways that mission teams from the United States are involved in the ministry in Guatemala. Our VBS programs are during regular school hours and our principals and teachers play an active role in our programs.

 

Door-to-Door Evangelism

One of the greatest joys teams get to experience when they come to Guatemala is going door to door and sharing the love of Christ with food, tracts, and small gifts. Our goal in doing door to door is to share the love of Christ and to build up the local church in the city or village the teams are working in.

 

Home Building

 

 Through our feeding programs and community leaders we learn of many needs in the local community. One of the greatest needs as you can see is a home with solid walls. Many of the homes that we encounter are made from metal, wood, corn stalks, or plastic wrap all with dirt floors and terrible roofs. Through the work of many church mission teams we have provided over 150 homes in the last 3 years. One of the many projects teams can work on while they are in Guatemala is building a home. 

 

Carl’s Coops

 This outreach ministry was inspired by our co-founder Carla’s dad Carla Gann. He loved chickens and used them to share his love with others. Clubhouse uses chickens to help families build a micro-business. We build them a coop, provide them with 25 chicks and feed to get started. We then buy the chickens back when they are fully grown to feed our kids in our feeding programs. This allows the families the opportunity to learn to do for themselves while providing a much needed service for Clubhouse. 

 

Easy Gardens

 Much like the Coop ministry Clubhouse works with families to build garden systems to allow families to grow produce is a small area and provide fresh vegetables and produce for their family and it also allows them to sale their extra produce back to Clubhouse to use in the Student programs. 

 Food Boxes

One of the greatest joys of ministry is providing for those in needs. The Clubhouse staff along with short-term mission teams get the opportunity to share the love of Christ while providing a food box filled with food for families in need. What we as US Americans think is a simple box of food can feed a family in Guatemala for 10 days. By giving a family food it opens the door for Clubhouse to start to build a lasting relationship with the families.

Serving Soles

Serving soles is a ministry that was started out of a broken heart for people that do not have shoes. After going into many villages and doing block parties our hearts were broken by the number of men, women, and children that would attend the parties and have no shoes. Most of them would be walking with severely damaged feet. People would walk for miles to attend our parties and their feet would be so bad you could hardly look at them.
Now with the help of a lot of people the needs are starting to be met. We now travel with boxes of shoes and wipes. Any time we see someone without shoes we sit them down and first wash their feet, then place a new pair of shoes on their very worn feet. We feel that if we are going to truly e the hands and feet of Christ that we must first serve others like Christ served.
If you would like to help with this part of our ministry it is easy. We are always in need of shoes. So if you are traveling to Guatemala we ask that you please pack a few extra pairs of shoes in your bags. If you are not coming to Guatemala but would like to help. You can help by purchasing shoes here in Guatemala. A normal pair of shoes cost about $25.00. So if you would like to help please send your check or money order to our PO Box and mark shoes in the memo.ntment itself, make it almost impossible for most to have their eyes examined. In the recent past, we have seen elderly patients who’ve not seen clearly for 30+ years wak out of the clinic donning lenses which will allow them to see their grandchildren or a flower for the first time (perhaps, in their eyes, one and the same?) Eye clinics are a great way for you to share the gospel of Christ. We can host full eye clinics or even simple clinics with "Doc in a Box" system. Again, consider the words of our Lord: “Jesus stopped and called them. 'What do you want Me to do for you?' He asked. 'Lord,' they answered, 'we want our sight.' Jesus had compassion on them and touched their eyes. Immediately they received their sight and followed Him.” (NIV, Matt. 20:32-34) The cost to buy a child a pair of shoes is $25.

Water Filter

 

 Clubhouse is excited to partner with Tiva Water to bring clean water to the people of Guatemala and Central America. The Tiva filter is not like any other filter we have seen or used in Guatemala. It is simple, easy to install and last up to 5 years or longer. The best part about the Tiva filter is it will allow our families to save money they normally spend on medication to take after drinking water that is contaminated with bacteria. Clubhouse will be the distributer for Tiva throughout Guatemala and we hope Central America.
