As we became part of the Chichicastenango community, we perceived a need for a place that could serve to provide a continuum of care options for local Guatemalans. God provided us such a place and it is called Monte Flor, or Flower Mountain; the name this land has possessed as long as locals can remember.
Monte Flor is a sixty acre property located just outside the town of Chichicastenango. The works of Monte Flor are to embody a community-centric approach to providing care, spiritual guidance, education and resources that facilitate the health and independence of local families and communities. Currently those works include housing for Manos de Jesus staff, Casa de Sarita, a multi-use Community Center, and a Shoe Factory. There is also room for future growth. However, we wish to monitor our growth so that our original ministry calling is not lost
