Ixim Spirit of Solidarity is a transnational ministry that fosters mutually enriching Christian relationships between the people of Nebraska and Guatemala through sharing of our humanity, faith and resources.

Ixim, pronounced “ee-sheem”, is the Mayan word for corn, a staple of Guatemala and a livelihood of Nebraska. This represents the common goal of forming relationships between the people of the Archdiocese of Omaha, Nebraska, and the Diocese of Huehuetenango, Guatemala.

Called to Mission? Have you ever considered doing a short term mission project in a foreign country? Have you felt the call from God to share faith with people from other lands but never knew how to make it happen?

In 2003 the Archdiocese of Omaha began the mission project called Ixim: Spirit of Solidarity, designed to build a relationship between the dioceses of Omaha and Huehuetenango in Guatemala. Groups from Omaha have traveled to Guatemala and worked side by side with the people there to improve the conditions and grow in faith.
