The People


Set in the Highlands of rural Guatemala, Adonai Ministries sits in the midst of the Mayan Quiche Indians, with a small Latin population as well. Although we are here to serve all that are placed in our path, our heart is to reach out primarily to the "least of these in our area" - the indigenous population.

A reserved and humble people in general, most still continue to speak exclusively the Quiche dialect and follow the same cultural practices that their people have been carrying out for thousands of years. Almost all people in our area are farmers, and most indigenous people continue to use the traditional dress (seen in the picture) and follow the traditional diet (beans, rice and corn tortillas).
