Dr. Mike Evans, founder of the Friends of Zion Heritage Center in Jerusalem, presented Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales with an award in Guatemala City on Thursday, for his decision last month to move his country’s embassy from Tel Aviv to the capital.

Evans previously gave the Friends of Zion Award to US President Donald Trump, at an event in the Oval Office attended by Vice President Mike Pence, senior advisers Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, and faith leaders representing more than 150 million Christians across the globe.

Since that historic event, Evans has been mobilizing his 32 million Friends of Zion supporters to influence world leaders to stand with Israel and the Jewish people and recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Evans reaffirmed his commitment that “Every world leader that says ‘yes’ will receive the Friend of Zion Award,” and pledged to keep working around the world to encourage other countries to move their embassies to Jerusalem.

Guatemala is honored at the Friends of Zion Heritage Center in Jerusalem as one of the nations that voted for the creation of a Jewish state in the UN General Assembly Partition vote on November 29, 1947.

About 41% of Guatemala’s 15 million citizens are evangelicals, according to the Friends of Zion Institute for Strategic Studies, which regularly maps evangelical demographics globally.

“Trump has built a historic alliance for the State of Israel and the Jewish people, and no [other] president has [as] courageously stood up for the State of Israel on the global stage,” Evans said. “President Trump’s historic recognition of Jerusalem will secure his place in history as the first American president to take that step since the founding of the State of Israel in 1948."
