Our 2018 Goals!

Four Letter Word’s 2018 Goals

1. Fully fund our Guatemalan Ambassador, German

German works to provide for his family while doing full-time ministry in his city, Xenacoj. German needs $300 per week to free up his time to focus on full time ministry. This total includes all expenses covered for his family, as well as operations for the ministry. German’s time is very valuable and the more he has to influence widows and orphans, the bigger impact we can make in Guatemala.

How can you help? We are in need of monthly donations, whether that is $5, $20, or $50 your contribution will make a significant difference in the lives of our ambassador, his family, and the widows and orphans he serves in Xenacoj.  You can donate monthly or one-time to contribute to the wonderful things we are doing in Guatemala.

Where does the funding go? Great question!  –It goes directly to German through a giving fund we have set up with Western Union. The money you donate assists with housing, utilities, food and transportation costs for his family and the ministry.

2. Deploy mission trips to Xenacoj

Hosting mission trips not only generates revenue for the ministry, but is also crucial in getting large projects done. German is only one person and needs critical help in tackling longer term projects, such as large events or builds. We currently have room for 12 missionaries per trip we are currently accepting short-term and long-term applications. Our goal is to bring sustainable development to rural Guatemalan communities —connecting with rural villages in Guatemala, partnering together, building relationships, and developing life-changing infrastructure.

Are you interested in going to Guatemala? You can get more information, sign up for one of our mission trips or schedule your own trip by emailing us at info@fourletterword.org.

3. Ordain German in Guatemala

German is a man after God’s heart and we are committed to serving him. We have partnered up with Pastor Robert Guzman from Hope Revolution Church to mentor German, and help him obtain ordination as a pastor in Guatemala.

Why is this important? German has had the dream and vision of becoming a pastor for many years. While it seems easy to pursue, it is not currently feasible for German to attend school while also working to provide for his family. German has 5 children, a wife, and a homestead to be financially responsible for. In addition, he is responsible for caring for local orphans and widows in his free time. Pastors in Guatemala are highly sought after professionally, and are held in high regard among their community. This process can be expedited once we get him fully funded as he will be able to focus fully on his pastoral training. Freeing his time will allow him to provide a transformation in the minds and hearts of the community of Xenacoj as a spiritual leader.

This process can be expedited once we get him fully funded as he will be able to focus fully on his pastoral training.


At Four Letter Word we are committed to sustainability. We do not want the people we serve to become fully dependent on our efforts. We help them commit to accountability by teaching them to provide us with reports, budgets, and progress updates. Our goal is to assist them in becoming fully self-sufficient by implementing education within every act of kindness we complete.

We bought the truck!

German started his car everyday with hope and a prayer. We are elated to share the Toyota Tacoma is purchased and on its way to Guatemala soon!

Imagine driving this jalopy to your physical labor job every day, putting along unpaved roads and unsteady terrain. You don’t have AC, the gas gauge doesn’t work, and every morning you have to pray it even starts. But you don’t complain; it still runs. Your wages aren’t enough to save AND provide for your family, and loans aren’t an option.

This is the current vehicle that belongs to German, the gentleman responsible for feeding our sponsor families throughout Xenacoj. This is why we need to get this Tacoma to Guatemala. This Monday, think about your commute, your desk job, your grocery bill, and reflect on all the blessings you have, all beginning with a working, reliable vehicle.

Having this truck will not only create a revenue source for German, increase quality of life amongst the community of Xenacoj, but also help the Four Letter Word Guatemala base bring food and supplies to orphans and widows in need. Please be part of this journey with us and DONATE NOW to ensure we can pick it up when it arrives in Guatemala!
