Trip Focus: Choir, Dental, Widow Home Construction, & Children's Ministry.
The Guatemala Team will travel via airplane from San Antonio, to Guatemala City, then by chartered bus to the mountain town of Chichicastenango. We will be serving under the leadership of our missionary partner, “Mission Frontiers,” for 7 days across several villages around the Chichicastenango region. Under the direction of our ministry partner, team members will also be involved in evangelism, worship, sharing God's Word through drama and music, dental exams, widow’s home construction, choir, and children’s ministry outreach. We are thankful for the wonderful partnership with the Mission Frontiers leadership teams, as we serve alongside one another for God’s Kingdom vision and purposes.
