Ravaged by 36 years of civil war, the beautiful country and indigenous peoples of Guatemala are faced with ongoing atrocities of displaced families, poverty, oppression and death. Paradise Bound began its work in 1997, immediately implementing programs to provide food, homes and medical care. Yet at the heart of each program—then and today—is the Gospel of Jesus Christ and eternal life through Him.

We’re Doing Whatever It Takes

Our goal is simple: ‘Whatever it takes’ to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the lost and dying of Guatemala. We live this out in our daily lives, our mission teams, and in every program in which we are privileged to take part. Christ never waited for the needy to come to Him, instead meeting God’s children where they were, physically and spiritually. Nothing stood in the way of our Lord; love propelled Him. And as our Lord lives within each of our hearts, at Paradise Bound we strive to achieve the same.

More Than Humanitarian Aid

Holding true our Lord’s example, PBM ministers to people’s physical needs as well as the eternal. In every home built, at every medical clinic or outreach conducted, in our Open Doors Childrens Home, and through our evangelism and discipleship programs the full Gospel is presented. Thousands have come to know our Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and are now…Paradise Bound!

A Rewarding Experience

PBM has touched over 100,000 lives and our vision has been embraced by over 3,000 team members who have served alongside us on short term Mission Trips. Allow yourself a moment to imagine God using you to touch the life of another through one of our mission trips and/or as a Prayer or financial partner. This truly is “an experience Eternity will only heighten” as you someday recognize those in Heaven whom our Lord brought to Himself through you. If not you, then who? If not now, then when?

You’re Invited to Join Us

We invite you into our lives and calling as you spend the next few moments with us—moments that, through the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, could equal Eternity in the life of one of these precious ones of His!
