Located in Central America, Guatemala creates challenge and opportunity. The over 14.5 million people who live here are constantly at the mercy of the fault lines above which they live. Earthquakes are commonplace. Poverty is widespread. These combine to cripple the people of Guatemala when tragedy strikes. Homes already in disrepair fall prey to these natural disasters. In this wake, an already impoverished people become even more crippled. Those who were already struggling to provide food for their families, are forced to fight even more for the very things we take advantage of every day. Yet, even without a significant earthquake since 2012, Guatemala is a place of opportunity for the love of Christ to be extended.
Currently in the middle of an election, the country is ripe for change. You can be a part of that change. Multiply teams will be going into this beautiful country to partner with local ministries.
Your team will take part in the church's vision to build one thousand homes in the villages outside of Antigua! These homes are prefabricated into house kits, and your team along with some church staff, will build a home for a family in need. You will learn everything you need to know on site - so any skill level is welcome!
You will also spend time at a local feeding center where you will help distribute food to hundreds of local children, while also preparing a lesson to share with them through songs and actions as they eat. It’s a great opportunity to meet a need, while also sharing the Gospel with these kids!
During the week, your team will also travel to various schools, children's homes, and feeding centers as you work to build relationships with the kids there, as well as share stories that share the life giving message of Jesus Christ.
We ask that you join us. Come with us. Go to the edges of the earth: loving, caring, building, sharing.
