September 16- 26, 2023 Mission to Guatemala
Days Until Departure
We are now accepting applications for our September 16- 26, 2023 mission trip to serve at-risk children in the beautiful country of Guatemala.
Details of this trip are still being created.
Short-term mission teams participate in furthering Impact Ministries’ 15+ years of community involvement in developing Christian schools, providing local outreach programs, and planting 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 our short-term mission teams. 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
YOUR TRIP LEADER: Tim Oloffson
Tim is the co-founder and Executive Director of Another Child Foundation. He started as our Executive Director in 2010. Tim is married to Theresa and lives in Wyanet, Illinois. Tim & Theresa have 2 children (Jared & Brittany) who both have traveled with ACF to Romania number of times. Tim has lead nearly 30 mission teams around the world over the years. Tim believes that the international mission trip can sometimes be a catalyst in a persons spiritual life. He believes these trips are much like going to the eye doctor. These trips can open your eyes in new ways and you see the world more clearly. You will see the world as Jesus sees the world.
The team will be staying at the housing center near the ministry site. Teams will be safe on the isolated grounds. The team will stay in hotels while traveling.
With a very diverse culture, Guatemala (aka The Land of Eternal Spring) is mountainous with patches of desert and valleys and will awe you in the beauty.
Guatemala has beautiful weather most of the year though the rainy season can last for 2 months.
While traveling to Guatemala, we will give you some helpful tips to prepare you for your trip.
