The purpose of our trip is to remove obstacles from the lives of impoverished families in Guatemala which prevent their children from attending school and realizing their God given potential for growth and leadership in changing their own communities. Thank you for covering the processing fees. If you are interested in this trip, please contact Lynn asap. We have room for 1, maybe 2 more until March 3. Contact Lynn for details and information on how to submit your trip payment.
Christian missions are about serving people in need by walking in partnership with them to help them improve their circumstances while sharing the saving message of Jesus Christ by example. We believe that Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life. It is through His death and resurrection that our sins are forgiven and the bridge is built for us to walk in relationship with Him both here and in eternity provided we accept that gift, repent of our sins and ask His forgiveness. It is not through works that we are saved but rather that our works reflect the love of our father in heaven toward all his creation.
