Guatemala
 
In 1996 Regnum Christi arrived to Guatemala thanks to a Regnum Christi married couple from El Salvador. From then on, Regnum Christi carried out its apostolate in the fields of evangelization, works of Christian charity, and human advancement.

In 1996, a married couple moved to Guatemala for family business matters. They began to create the first groups of Regnum Christi members until in May of 1998 the first apostolate was born: La Escuela de la Fe.

That same year the "Hombre Nuevo" radio program was launched in Guatemala with a magnificent reception from radio listeners of all backgrounds. In 1999, a delegation from Guatemala represented Central America at the Youth and Family Encounter in Atlanta.

The year 2000 marked a point of greater expansion in the country’s sections and apostolates. In December, Guatemalan pilgrims went to Rome to participate in the International Youth and Family Encounter on the occasion of the 60th year anniversary of the foundation of the Legion of Christ, marking the end of the Jubilee of the year 2000.

In 2002, with the support of the Local Office of El Salvador, the Full-time Lay Missionaries program was founded in Guatemala. The first group was formed by 10 full-time lay missionaries in the archdiocese of the capital. The first Central American Congress on the Family was also started, with great success. The main fruit of this congress was the apostolate of Familia Unida(United Family).

During Holy Week of 2003, the first Medical Mission was held. This day served as a base for the foundation of Youth for the Third Millennium. In addition, contact with the needs of the people motivated a group of businessmen to form the directive team for the Mano Amiga School. In that same year, the first Full-time Lay Missionaries course was held in Guatemala, reaching a new diocese: Escuintla.
