PLAN YOUR TRIP

                                                                                                                                                                                

Since this country is so beautifully diverse, no two trips are exactly alike, but God faithfully blesses the teams that come to minister, and we are grateful that many, if not all, want to return! Some of the projects include but are not limited to ~

 

Sunday School 1

Schools - Many rural schools in Guatemala are in sad disrepair, and often an entire village of children can not go to school because the building does not have a functioning roof. The floors are often dirt, or walls made with sticks. We have many petitions from school leaders asking for help with their buildings. When teams help a local school, the love of God is shown to the entire village in a very practical way. Whatever your project, you will have meaningful time, sharing the love of Jesus with local Guatemalans, and you will make a huge difference for your Guatemalan brothers and sisters.

Churches are often small structures made of rough-cut boards, a dirt floor, and wooden trusses that are highly susceptible to termites and other insects. Mission2Guatemala has requests from local churches of many different evangelical denominations for larger, more permanent churches with metal roofs and cement block walls.

Vacation Bible School (VBS) is a vital part of the ministry of all our teams. Showing love to hundreds of children through Bible stories, songs, games, crafts, etc is life-changing for the children, as well as the team members.

Medical clinics or specialized medical treatments can also be arranged for teams of doctors and nurses. Quality health care is unavailable to many of the villages where we minister. Medical supplies, vitamins, medicines and personal care items are much needed.
