Mission: And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also. 2Timothy 2:2 Servants 4 Him (S4H) is a non-profit , 501(c)(3), mission organization with a vision to equip disciples to make disciples. We believe that it is a life changing journey to restore God’s priorities among His people. A true disciple is a person who actively seeks a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and has a passionate commitment to know Him, love Him, follow Him and obey His Word, no matter what the cost. Applying Matthew 28:16-20 by teaching others how to “go and teach others all that I have commanded you” we build a reproducible model for others to follow. Servants 4 Him trains local pastors and church leaders how to be and make disciples. We teach inductive Bible studies to help them understand the Word and how to apply it personally in their lives. We mentor and encourage them in this walk of getting to know God for themselves. 2 Timothy 2:2, And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also. Disciple making is the heart of Servants 4 Him. Because there are many spiritual and physical problems that need to be addressed Servants 4 Him uses education and appropriate technologies to help local churches open doors to explain the good news of Christ Jesus. We are currently using inductive Bible study training, bio-sand water filters, improved wood-burning stoves, dry composting latrines, and health and sanitation education as tools for evangelism and to equip pastors and church leaders to reach their communities. S4H works alongside churches, mission organizations, and other missionaries equipping them with the tools and education necessary to implement programs using the skills and technologies mentioned above. We believe the local church is uniquely positioned to help people in their communities address spiritual and health issues like clean water, reduction of smoke from open cooking fires, and sufficient housing. When the local church is equipped to grow spiritually and is involved in meeting the physical needs of the community, the results are always changed lives and kingdom growth.

Servants4Him is one of the most effective organizations that truly invests in and provides lasting help to people in rural Guatemala. Their approach includes training and equipping national pastors and church leaders, providing spiritual as well as physical assistance. We know Forrest & Carol personally and can vouch for their integrity, hard work, and enthusiasm!

I have been blessed with an opportunity to go on two short term missions projects with Servants4Him and both have been a great experience. The organization and people take their ministry seriously and are devoted to developing long-term, sustainable outreach and assistance to the people of Guatemala. I have seen first hand, their effects on the lives of both "ordinary" Guatemalans as well as their impact on the lives and ministry of the Guatemalan leaders as they mentor and develop them to be more effective in the ministry. The organization is diligent in efficiently using the resources they have - both in personnel and in financial resources and they take stewardship very seriously. Their love of God and the people of Guatemala is core to their ministry. Keep up the great work and I look forward to future opportunities.

I've been supporting S4H financially for over 4 years and was able to join them for a 10 day mission trip to Guatemala in 2011 as volunteers. We have know the leadership personally and several on the team for this time. Our trip to Guatemala solidified our trust in this ministry's stewardship and dedication to the people in poor areas of that country. Their passion and proven methods make a substantial impact on many lives in ways that can make long term improvements to their lives and eternal rewards.

I'm making my fourth trip down to teach next summer. I look forward to it every year. All in the Servants4Him team have a deep love for Christ and a deep compassion for the people of Guatemala, They are hard working and disciplined and their ministry is grounded in loving relationships. Servants4Him has persevered in ministering to the Guatemalan people for many years and they have kept in close personal contact with their supporters and volunteers.

I've served on short term missions trips with Servants4Him twice, the first time as a member of a church team supporting their mercy ministry projects and the second time on a visit to disciple church and mission leaders. I have been privileged to become acquainted with all the Servants4Him mission members. They are a gifted and grace filled team. What a blessing to serve with them!

Servants4Him is a hands-on, no frills ministry deeply committed to personal relationships and sharing Christ's love in very practical ways. Their ultimate goal is to train church leaders to make disciples for Christ to expand and deepen God's kingdom in Guatemala. Their vision is clear and they are fully committed to His work in Guatemala.

We have been involed with Servants 4 Him for several years thru prayer and financial support. Forrest is my twin brother. He and his wife Carol work tirelessly to share the good news of the gospel with the villagers in Guatemala. They love the Guatemalan people and they share the love of God with everyone they come in contact with.
A few of the main focuses of their ministry is to bring clean drinking water to households, install vented stoves for cooking (replacing open indoor fires in homes), and assist with dental and personal hygiene clinics.
We are grateful and blessed to be able to call the Kendalls "family" understanding that all of God's children are in His family and that we are all part of the family of God.

Praying the Lord will allow me to visit with them personally this Fall. And, be blessed to see them as they work in their ministry.

None - They are wonderful, God-loving people.

This ministry is a great combination of good management, compassion, hard work, creativity and a willingness to go where they are needed. It is impressive that when they see a new area for ministry they carefully evaluate whether or not the Lord is calling them to meet this need, go to this new place and and "do a new thing." They are definitely worthy of support and will keep you well updated on all that is going on.

Servants4Him is a very hard working team of folks who have a big heart for the Guatemalan people. They started small and have grown as God has called them to do more and as they have seen more and more need and opportunity. I have had the privilege to work with them on more than one occassion and it is inspiring to see how they relate so lovingly to the village people who need help in both practical and spiritual ways. It is wonderful the way they weave the Gospel message into the day to day health related needs of these wonderful people. A typical village woman does not know that her lungs are becoming blackened from the daily smoke her fire makes when she cooks her tortillas. Neither does she know that her heart can be black with sin without a Savior. What a blessing for her to be visited and loved by servants who help her to understand how to correct both of these issues. It is especially impressive that this is not a "hit and run" type of evangelism. The Servants4Him team sticks around and forms lasting and meaningful friendships with the people they are ministering to. They literally become a part of the village and the fabric of the people's daily lives. I have seen all of this first hand as I have helped to prepare materials for water filters, install the filters, work with children at Bible School type events and help to sort and distribute clothing and shoes to village families. It is always a blessing to be a part of this team, even if for only a week.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

getting to know and talk with some of the village people who have been recipients of this ministry's help and seeing how they have now come alongside and are bringing others into Kingdom living as well.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help them to centralize their operation so that the team members were not living in such a spread out fashion. A lot of time and resource is spent in driving in lots of traffic using expensive gas. It would be helpful if they had a location that could serve as their living space, offices, storage, housing for visiting teams, etc.

Missionaries in a distant field, sowing and feeding the flock. Dedicated servants sharing news and updates on the growth of the church...sharing real needs and progress. A wonderful reflection of Christ's manifested love for the lost sheep. Keep the faith!

Servants 4 Him has been expanding their work for God, by planting churches, providing Bible training, providing employment to unemployed and expanding as God leads them. They are very discerning in the use of God's resources.
