Wrestling Guatemala

The wrestling team will travel to Guatemala City, Guatemala from May 22-June 2 in partnership with AIA Wrestling a Christian sports ministry. Athletes in Action (AIA) has been using the powerful medium of athletics for over 50 years as a means to impact the world for Jesus Christ. AIA runs sports ministry through hosting camps and competitions throughout the world. The wrestling ministry at AIA regularly partners with local wrestling clubs to run high-level camps and tournaments. As a part of these athletic events, our athletes will build relationships with Guatemalan wrestlers and have the chance to share testimonies of what Jesus has done in their lives with those athletes. This will be AROMA’s second time partnering with the local AIA staff in Guatemala, as the wrestling team visited the ministry four years ago. During the last trip to Guatemala, the wrestling program held a wrestling clinic for inner city kids, trained alongside Guatemalan athletes at their Olympic training center, and served the local church in ongoing ministry with local orphanages and outreach ministries. As a result of one of the wrestler's testimony, the entire Guatemalan junior national team attended church services with Messiah wrestling the next day! The wrestling team has a great opportunity to be a part of this ongoing ministry in Guatemala!
