SOS's primary call is to be a Ministry of Presence not a Ministry of Presents Our primary focus is in developing a long term relationship of mutual trust and respect with the indigenous Maya.

Sending Out Servants (SOS) prayer support team...we need your prayers...


Our Holy Father, Pope John Paul II said:

"'There must be unceasing prayer to nourish the desire to carry Christ to all men and women."

Offering sacrificial prayer is the most powerful way individuals can serve the mission effort. All participants involved in the work of the mission need to be continually covered in prayer because a mission outreach frequently has a far reaching evangelizing effect that touches many lives. Whenever there is an opportunity for God's Kingdom to be strengthened and united and whenever there is a path opened for people to draw closer in their personal relationship with God, the powers of darkness frequently trying all kinds of tactics to discourage, distract, divide and flat wear us out. Only the more powerful power of prayer can overcome these obstacles.

Prayer Supporters are needed:
• to keep the SOS mission leadership and mission efforts covered in prayer on a continuous basis so that God's desires are advanced.

• to participate in an 8 day Eucharistic Adoration Prayer Vigil that takes place in participating parishes each time the Travel Teams are on mission. Prayers are offered for the intention that the team members will be kept safe from harm and that God's will be done through them.

One can also participate in these Prayer Vigils by praying before the Blessed Sacrament in ones own parish church, or home. Being unified in our intentions, the Travel Team goes forth covered in a blanket of prayer. Thus, when the Travel Team is on mission so is the Home Team. Mother Teresa said it best: "Together we are doing something beautiful for God."

"What has God revealed to us?

That we are many parts. That we are all colors, all sizes and shapes. And sometimes, we are even broken, sad, lonely, discouraged. But when we came together, as family, as friends, as the Body of Christ, we become a beautiful people --pleasing to God-- beloved of God.

What else has God revealed to us?

That this church stands on Holy Ground, built by your ancestors and martyrs out of love for you and love for God. Many gave their lives for you and for all for us --The Body of Christ.

What else has God revealed?

That I, and all of the members of our SOS team, stand on this Holy Ground in awe of you. You as individuals. You as families. You as a community..."
