Elías & Aura Sagastume

Ministry Journey

Latino Mobilizer


Elias and his wife Aura are facilitators of Simply Mobilizing (SM) Guatemala. SM is a ministry that facilitates, among others, the courses “Kairos” and “La Historia por Concluir,” with which they want to mobilize the churches for the Great Commission. Also, pastors graduated from the Berea Friends Theological Seminary in Chiquimula, Guatemala.

Also, from the local church (Canaan Friends Church), located in the department of Chiquimula, in eastern Guatemala, Elias serves as coordinator of the mission’s ministry. He supports mobilizing the membership of the churches. In addition, he raises funds to strengthen the work of missionaries sent by the church at the national level to Cambodia and others who are preparing to be sent


They were born in a Christian home, their parents’ were pastors, and now three daughters are also pastors serving the mission owner. In 2013, Elias heard his pastor talk about missions and  became interested in learning more about them. He began to read books with a missionary focus, and then his pastor, Danilo Peña challenged him and recommended taking the KAIROS course.

From then on, they focused on missions, facilitating courses, mobilizing the church (visiting them periodically), and helping raise funds to support missionaries in Cambodia.The purpose of Elias and Aura is to visit local churches and challenge them to work on being senders and mobilize others. They also seek strategies to raise funds to support the work of missionaries in Cambodia and Spain.

Currently, Aura and Elias Sagastume are active members of the Iglesia Evangélica Amigos Canaán in the city of Chiquimula, Guatemala. Both have three daughters, one son, six grandchildren, and one granddaughter

Each church is independent and autonomous and must be free from interference by any ecclesiastical or political authority; that, therefore, Church and State must be kept separate as having different functions, each fulfilling its duties free from the dictation or patronage of the other.

We believe that a visible church is a company of believers in Jesus Christ, buried with Him in baptism and associated for worship, work and fellowship.

We believe that to these visible churches were committed for observance “until He comes,” the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper; and that God has laid upon these churches the task of persuading a lost world to accept Jesus Christ as Savior and to enthrone Him as Lord and Master. We believe that righteous living, good works and proper social concern are essential products of the gospel.

We believe, therefore, that those who accept Christ as their Lord and Savior will rejoice forever in God’s presence and those who refuse to accept Christ as Lord and Savior will be forever separated from God.
We believe in His bodily resurrection, His ascension into heaven, His high priestly intercession for His people and His personal, visible return to the world according to His promise.
