International Mission Trips
Every few years our students take an international mission trip, usually in conjunction with our youth choir tour. Our most recent site to visit was the village of Pacaya in Guatemala. Many of us will be going back again this year as part of our church's five-year commitment to our missionaries in Guatemala. While there, we will be building a church, constructing houses, assembling stoves, giving away clothes, hosting a block party for the village, and holding a Vacation Bible School.
This is a community that was very skeptical of us when we first arrived a few years ago in 2010, shortly after a volcanic eruption had decimated the area. Prior to this, they had only had contact with Americans twenty years before and, though they had promised to come back, that group never returned. This will be our fourth year as a church to continue to build on the relationships forged in the midst of that skepticism, a miracle in itself; a miracle that our students helped nurture.
