Hello family and friends!
I will be travelling to Guatemala on a short term mission trip, February 22-26, 2016, in partnership with MANNA Worldwide and my church, The Dialogue Church. This is the first mission's trip our church has taken, so I am very excited to be part of this inaugural trip.
We will be going to the village of El Arado and will have the opportunity to work in their feeding center, where over 100 kids come to get their only meal of the day. We will also volunteer at their orphanage, which is so well run that the government of Guatemala sends kids to it. Lastly, we will have building projects to help repair existing facilities or start construction on new ones.
What we love about partnering with MANNA Worldwide, is that they believe in the power of the local church. When they go into a community, the utilize a three-tier process that not only meets the physical needs of the community, but meets their spiritual needs as well. They begin by opening a feeding center, where kids come to get a meal. Then they reach out to the moms and begin to hold bible studies with them. When they have enough critical mass of people, they bring in a local pastor and plant a church, and then they reach the husbands, brothers, and uncles who are off working to earn a living for their family.
I would love for you to be a part of sending me on this trip! The total cost is $1,300.00, of which I have already paid the $200 deposit for the airfare.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my website!
