Kara Baker

Construyendo Corazones

Kara Baker, originally from Ohio, first visited Guatemala as a teenager in 2005. The village of Santa María de Jesús, and the country of Guatemala, quickly stole her heart. A month after visiting Guatemala, Kara began college at The Ohio State University, but always prayed she would have the opportunity to go back. Fast forward eight years to 2013 when God provided her with the opportunity! On this short term experience, she worked alongside Gerber building water filters and fuel efficient stoves. There was an explainable feeling Kara had for many months after returning back to the states, and she began to pray about why she was feeling this way and what God was calling her to do. Two more personal trips to Guatemala, and a whole lot of confirmation, Kara is now serving under Mission Impact’s ministry, Construyendo Corazones.

But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy,
and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.
Acts 20:24
