As many of you already know, I have been a part of Trinity Church's Guatemala mission's group that travels down to serve, the past two summers. We stay on the mission of Manos de Jesus in Chichicastenango. There, we participate at several children's feeding programs, hand out school shoes (that they actually make on the mission) to kids, remodel and build houses, put in woodstoves, throw parties for the staff that work on the mission, and more. Our group's motto has always been to "do some good and no harm." The gospel is shared by the use of a translator and each family that has a house remodeled or built for them, and each family we visit and spend time with, receives an audio Bible in their own language. It's amazing to see the things that God does through the mission of Manos de Jesus.
Before going on this trip that first year, I was quite nervous. I had never done something such as this, and it was something very out of my comfort zone. I trusted God through everything and here I am going back for the third year. Our group will be preparing for the next couple months with informational and team bonding meetings. While it is a blessing to be able to have a chance to serve, there are also expenses that each person in our group has to come up with, which is why I created this page. Here is a summary of our expenses... each person is expected to pay for flights down there, the expense to stay at the mission (which includes food and housing, cost to go to each job site and feeding program, and more), the hotel expense for when we first get to Guatemala City and before we leave, and a few other things. It is expected to be just under $2000 in total this year. I have loved going the past two years and if you can support me by first and foremost, praying for our group as we prepare and second, if able, supporting me with my expenses, every penny helps, it would truly be a blessing. Thank you so much for reading this!
