Cochrane Alliance Church

The congregation of Cochrane Alberta is an evangelical demoniation that emphasizes the need for a genuine personal relationship with Christ. Their mission focusses connecting people with Jesus so the world thrive. The Cochrane Alliance Church has sent many teams to San Raymundo, Guatemala to work with their field partner pastor Victor and his team at the Jesus Vienne School. Since their partnership started in 2010, they focused on the construction of the school building. The school opened its doors for the first time in January 2015. The school currently serves over 140 students from kindergarten to grade 9 during the January – October school year.

Here are a few testimonies from the team members:

"I'm reminded of how big God's church is and that we are all a part of it."
"Every time I go, I'm reminded of how God moves. He is always in control."
"I think this trip has made me more ready to put my trust in God after seeing all the ways he provided for me leading up to, and during, the trip."
"I have been changed in how I view my life, and how I'd like to spend my time and money."
"I have taken a major step in my spiritual life—because of this step, more options and doors have been opened to me."
"I am going to focus on being a positive influence on youth in my school and community."
"While we served others with the love of God, my eyes were opened showing me that we are all God's creation and it's up to us to show everyone God's love and glory."
