INFO

This year we will be heading to Guatemala for our Spring Break mission trip.  This will be our first trip to Guatemala, and we are looking forward to building a relationship with the local church in the areas we will be serving. 

We will have many opportunities to serve children, families and the elderly in multiple communities in Guatemala. The goal of our trip is to bring the love of Christ in how we serve and how we share our testimony.  As always, one of our main goals is to encourage the local church that we serve with.  The pastor and his church are main influence of Jesus is this community for the future and as we visit for a week we want to partner with his vision for how to reach the community.

We will be partnering with an amazing mission organization called “Praying Pelican” who we have worked with for the last seven years.

This truly is an opportunity that your high school student will never forget.
