Self-sustaining Business Development. Dependency can be defined as the unhealthy reliance on foreign resources, personnel, and ideas, which stifles local initiative. Missions Frontier is intentional about creating opportunities and jobs with which the local people can support their families and their local churches and focuses its efforts on projects that will produce long-term solutions and are sustainable without on-going dependency on American funds. In Chichicastenango, the average worker supports 8-10 family members. (Employing one person
theoretically supports 8-10 people.)
CASA DEL REY HOTEL - This hotel is a vital hub for Missions Frontier, from which flow multiple ministries.. The hotel itself is the location for short term trips, conferences, a bilingual school, a school for missionary children, English camps for Guatemalan children/orphans, and a missionary church. Each year over $300,000 has been poured into the local economy through normal business operations. The hotel has provided an additional $100,000 of direct financial support through the projects completed by short term mission teams. The hotel provides over 50 jobs for local residents at a wage dramatically higher than the average daily wage in the area. in 2007, the Hotel Casa Del Rey was able to donate land for a New Water Tank to the city of Chichicastenango.
