Give Hope

Naomi Baumann

My name is Naomi Baumann and I am beginning my role here at Love Guatemala as a missionary resident. I want to introduce myself through this blog. I am from Bourbonnais, Illinois and I graduated from nursing school in 2017. Shortly after that, I moved to Guatemala to be a missionary. I did an internship with Love Guatemala in 2018 and after, began working as a nurse in a hospital about three hours away. After a lot of prayer, I decided to return to Love Guatemala to serve.

I have a few different roles here to help Love Guatemala fulfill their vision of giving hope to Guatemalans through the gospel of Jesus Christ and vocational training. I am supporting administration a few days a week to translate, work with sponsorship things, and do other administrative work. I also work with the English classes a few afternoons a week. That way, they can practice their conversation skills.

I also work with the clinic and feeding center alongside our Lesbia and Olga. Right now, in the clinic, the goal is to teach and help the patients to learn about different conditions they might have such as diabetes. There are also classes on healthy pregnancy and what to expect. And above all else, we are trying to help the patients grow in their faith by praying with them and sharing the gospel with them when they visit.

In the feeding center, I weigh and measure height for all of the kids that come. That way we can see how they are growing as they are receiving their meals. With that, I would also like to think of other ways the kids can grow, gain weight, and be healthy.  Very soon we will start a discipleship program with the moms who accompany their kids. While the kids are receiving their Bible story, we can have a time for the moms to help them learn and grow in their faith. We are very happy and anxious to start that new plan!

I am very excited about the chance to work here in Love Guatemala and am happy at the chance to start new things here! Thanks for your prayers and support in this new journey.
