Agape in Action

Organization Description: 

Dr. James Street and his wife Kathleen founded Agape in Action shortly after the end of the Guatemalan civil war - as poverty, malnutrition, and medical difficulties ravaged the country. In our first years, our focus was on surgeries primarily for women and children. Through the years we?ve diversified and we now have a full time physician living and working in Santa Cruz del Quiche?: Dr. Heidi Bell. Dr. Bell lives there with her husband Matt and their newborn son, Isaac.
Furthermore, our groups of volunteers now include American medical personnel and health educators, as well as dental and hearing professionals, pastors, engineers, cooks, translators, and construction volunteers. Short-term mission teams generally spend a week at a time in the region, at their own expense, to volunteer their services and fellowship.
