For the Love of Missions was founded by a group of people who participated in multiple short term mission trips to the community of the Guatemala City garbage dump. It became clear that the short term trips were not igniting long term change so For the Love of Missions launched on a journey to discover what would create long term change in the lives of individuals and the community.
