Adwina Weir

Proximos Pasos

Adwina is originally from Missouri & most recently lived in South Carolina. She has always had an interest in learning about & relating to different cultures. Her first visit to Guatemala was on a business trip as a clothing buyer in 2003. God began to work on her heart and she made the decision to give her life to Christ in 2011. Almost a decade after she first stepped foot in Guatemala, she had the opportunity to serve a community in need with her church on a short-term mission. Sensing God was heightening her awareness of Guatemala, she returned again in 2014. Despite the language barrier with the girls of Proximos Pasos school, she felt a strong connection with them. Adwina saw, firsthand, what an impact the school has on a young girl. In being obedient to God’s call to serve full-time in Guatemala she will join Mission Impact. She will teach English to 1st-6th grade girls and work with the Sowing Hope program that provides sponsorship for girls to attend school. Her heart aligns with the core objective of this school in caring for and mentoring the girls to be fully devoted disciples of Christ.


“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
