Work continues on Inheritance Church in Guatemala.

The Inheritance E-Free Church/Christian School is coming along in Guatemala, thanks to GoServ Global teams.  The $20,000 matching fundraiser at the end of last year was successful with the final matching dollars coming in late December. This fundraising money will be used to pay off all 2016 GoServ Global Guatemala accounts and leave us enough money to pour the floor in the church ($10,000) and put in the septic system ($3,000). The hope is there will still be enough left to hook up our electrical system ($5,000).

If you're interested in supporting the church and or Mark, visit  goservglobal.org - Choose "Guatemala Projects" or "Mark Lee Support". 

If you're interested in volunteering with GoServ Global in Guatemala, call 515.448.3131 to schedule your team.

Terry Baxter's Latest Book 

GoServ Global Global Co-Founder Terry Baxter has a new book, "Truth Quest" that is an engaging and fast-moving science 

fiction novel that presents the evidence for God's existence in a creative and compelling fashion. It's a fast, easy, fun, and stimulating read that accurately portrays the tension within the scientific and academic communities and how politics exerts huge pressure on a person's perception of reality. Be prepared to laugh, cry, and be stretched. Truth Quest does it all.
