Learn More about June Guatemala Mission Trip This Evening
We will have a time of sharing the opportunities available to support and serve on our trip to Jalapa, Guatemala. Plans are being made to work on construction of a compound for orphans and abandoned senior citizens. We will work with both age groups in various ministries, as well as community projects of sewing lessons, dispensing reading glasses, and applying fluoride to children’s teeth in a remote village.
Carlos Iboy, our trip coordinator, will be here with us before he returns to Guatemala and can answer your questions about service opportunities stateside and ‘in country.’ We will meet in the Café at 6:00. Refreshments will be served.
