About This TripThis is an 11 Day / 10 Night mission trip to Guatemala.
This team will visit Santiago & Cerro de Oro.
Join Orphan Outreach in serving orphans and vulnerable children and families around the Lake Atitlan region of Guatemala. This team from High Pointe Community will build houses for families in rural villages and continue building relationships with the local church of El Buen Pastor. Guatemala is a beautiful country that is described as â€œthe land of eternal springâ€ but is filled with tens of thousands children struggling in the face of extreme poverty. You will be changed forever by a visit to the country.
UNICEF estimates that are over 370,000 orphans in Guatemala. Many of these children come from families facing extreme poverty; 70 percent of people in Guatemala live below the poverty level. Orphan Outreach ministers in Guatemala by partnering with local orphanages, churches, and Christian schools for children in extreme poverty situations. We also make it a priority to come alongside the Guatemalan nationals and work with them as they serve their own people.
Barrett Hartman, Ministry Volunteer
