HTI exists to heal and teach in order to bring people to faith in Jesus Christ. Our goal is a restoration of health, described biblically as wholeness in mind, spirit, body, and in social relationships. We believe we are called by God to serve those who are most in need of help and who are least likely to receive it. The work is focused on Guatemala, with outreach to Nicaragua. In all we do, we endeavor to glorify God, encourage local Guatemalan congregations of Churches of Christ, and aid in their growth to maturity.
