ASELSI is participating in Unite714, a movement started by a group of pastors who had a heart to respond to the COVID-19 outbreak and bring believers together in prayer.

Based on 2 Chronicles 7:14, where God promises that when we humble ourselves, unite in prayer and seek His face, turn from our wicked ways, He will hear us, He will speak, He will forgive, and He will heal our lands.

The world needs healing. So, let's seek the Lord's face together. Join with ASELSI and individuals, churches, and organizations across the globe as we pray together.

The concept is simple: at 7:14 every morning and every night stop and pray. (Get the weekly prayer focus sheets here.)

ASELSI is making purposeful changes to our immediate plans in light of the COVID-19 outbreak and the financial implications that come along with this. Here's an update to keep you up-to-date and let you know how you can help.

Thanks to the support of generous givers at the end of 2019 and beginning of 2020 ASELSI was able to provide a full salary for all of the full-time employees in March and April even during the COVID-19 restrictions that forced us to work from home. THANK YOU!

However, due the economic downturn (unless God does something supernatural) we made a plan to reduce costs for the next 12 to 18 months. We imagine there will be fewer short-term mission teams this year, and those teams normally make a significant contribution to ASELSI when they come.

The situation for families in neighborhoods across the world has drastically changed in the past few months.

Here in Guatemala, we face a similar situation: Schools, churches, and public activities are shut down. Markets and normal jobs as well as public transportation have stopped. Still, the needs around us are as plentiful if not greater than before.

When Guatemala began to shut down due to COVID-19. ASELSI had to follow the national regulations and close our doors and programs at our campus in Chichicastenango. That meant the clinic and all our programs along with Bible classes and office work were all placed on hold.

We quickly shifted our on-site classes to an online format along with the virtual Bible Institute classes we have already been running online for the past three years. This allows us to keep training our students, but medical care and nutrition don’t function in a virtual-only world. Our patients need real-life medicine and nutrition for their babies.

Isolation. Social Distancing. Separation.

Those are key words that call us to action during the COVID-19 outbreak that has swept across the globe in the first few months of 2020.

While obedience to authorities, an abundance of caution, and simple wisdom require us to be separated from our normal social interactions during this time, it doesn't mean we can't come together through prayer that crosses every distance and brings us together (without contaminating anyone!).

Here are five points to help focus our prayers and bring us together in unity through prayer:
