Guatemala - March 9-16, 2024


Applications are closed and the team is full.

March 9-16, 2024
This team will have the opportunity to partner with House of Hope. The precious children who arrive at House of Hope come from the court system in Guatemala. They have been abandoned or taken out of abusive environments or situations of severe neglect. House of Hope provided them with good nutrition, a safe environment, and a lot of love and care from their team. This team will assist with a project benefiting the House of Hope and have opportunities to interact with the kids living there. Max team size is 25.

Ways to Pray for this Trip:

  • For the team as they prepare to go and build unity 
  • For our partnering organization, House of Hope and for the work they have already established
  • For the heart of the people in Guatemala

WHY SHORT-TERM TEAMS?: Team are designed to help meet the physical and spiritual needs of our missionary partners and the communities in which they serve. We believe that command of Christ to go into all the world has not changed but we are certainly aware and respect the many challenges that exist nationally and globally. We will absolutely do our best to take all the necessary precautions and work with our missionary hosts to adjust to the local guidelines but where there are needs and requests from our missionary partners and hosts, we want to provide an opportunity for those who are willing and able to go and help meet the needs.
