September 16-26, 2020 Mission Trip to Guatemala
We are now accepting applications for our September 16-26 mission trip to serve orphans and at-risk children in Guatemala.
Short-term mission teams participate in furthering Impact Ministries’ 15+ years of community involvement in developing Christian schools, local outreach programs, and newly planted churches. Years of hardship have prepared the hearts of the Guatemalan people, and they are hungry for the truth of Jesus Christ. Many people have already experienced the long-term life-changing effects of these short-term mission opportunities. Who knows, the life you impact just might be your own!
In addition to a variety of cultural activities designed to further your understanding of God’s work in Guatemala, you will also work alongside the staff of Impact Ministries and participate in a variety of community outreach projects:
- children’s ministry
- construction projects
- home visits
- devotionals and prayer ministry
