How We Serve

Through our Evangelical church plant, trade school, medical clinic, hospital ministry, hands on projects and disciple making we are being the hands and feet of Jesus throughout Chiquimula, Guatemala

City of Refuge

Our ministry headquarters, the City of Refuge, is the hub of BBIC’s outreach. A trade school, medical clinic, church, and mission team housing can be found at the COR. It is a place where the people of Camotán can be empowered to see that they can do anything with God’s strength. Just right up the way is the House of Refuge, our foster home for abandoned babies.

Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.



No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.



Medical Clinic

We serve several different communities with free medical care and health education. These services are a platform for sharing the love of Jesus through meeting people’s physical needs. Our prayer is for people to see the Gospel in action, meeting them where they are with what they need most.
Our doors are open to local patients each weekend. People walk for hours just to receive services and medications. Our healthcare personnel also travels into the mountain villages to take quality medical care to them and is on call when needed. The medical clinic has opened many doors for us to minister physically and spiritually to the people of the area.

Foster Home

The House of Refuge is equipped to house up to 10 babies and our foster family. The Lord sent us a wonderful couple, Daniel and Margareth, to serve as house parents in 2017 who have cared for over a dozen babies since then. 

In 2018, we were blessed with the opportunity to expand to a second floor, providing more space and allowing children of older ages to stay with us. The House of Refuge provides a temporary place of love for babies while we find a forever home for them.

For my father and my mother have forsaken me, but the Lord will take me in.




Ours is the only evangelical church in our village. Some people in our community who live high up in the mountains cannot afford to come down for church services or are not physically able to. So each week we have in-home Bible studies with them as well as children’s activities. God has used these Sunday and Wednesday meetings to lay foundational Truths in our area, build strong relationships, lead us to some of our dedicated staff members, and to bring salvation to many Guatemalan people.

Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.



As you come to him, a living stone rejected by men but in the sight of God chosen and precious, you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

1 Peter



Our weekly Bible Studies are rooted in the Word of God. We believe that God does not only want us to go, but to also disciple.

We are living out that call in the mountain villages surrounding our area and in the church based at the City of Refuge. BBIC also holds Bible studies at the national police stations. We are blessed with the opportunity to share the Word of God with people and watch them grow in their Christian walk and life. 

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. – Psalms 32:8

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;  I will counsel you with my loving eye on



Trade School

BBIC has partnered with a nationally accredited trade school, INTECAP. INTECAP’s certified instructors teach all classes at the City of Refuge while BBIC supplies the funding and materials needed. Men and women enrolled in our classes are equipped with practical trades, and upon graduation, they receive a diploma recognized nationwide by employers. Ultimately, our graduates are able to secure employment and provide for their families. Part of BBIC’s ministry model is not only to provide Guatemalan people with necessities to live, but also to empower those individuals to see their God-given potential and overcome the poverty cycle.

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.

Hands On

God gave BBIC a desire to see the people of Guatemala lifted up and their physical needs met. Clean water safe for consumption and housing resources to improve living conditions are not accessible for the average person in our area. Some of the ways we are able to help with these needs are through construction of new block homes, replacing thatch roofs with metal roofs, and providing families with fresh water filters. All of these things are made possible by our God-led supporters.

Hospital Ministry

The hospitals and malnutrition centers in our area are gloomy and often leave patients with a feeling of hopelessness. BBIC is able to visit these places and bring the Word and comfort of Jesus Christ. Prayer is a very powerful tool that God has given us and we exercise that with the sick children and adults. Currently we visit the Chiqiumula National Hospital and local health centers for malnourishment to pray and give clothes, baby care items, hygiene supplies, and toys to the young patients. BBIC also donates healthcare supplies to the hospital.

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.

Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.

1 John


The light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it.
