Guatemala

The nation of Guatemala has been plagued by gang violence and political instability in a way that few Western nations have ever seen. In the aftermath of such issues, the nation has thousands of orphans. We have partnered with two orphanages doing great ministry to orphans in order to bring teams to the nation with one very simple goal: Show orphans the love of Jesus! Many of these Guatemalan kids have been abused and abandoned, and a simple hug is worth far more than you could ever realize. This is a very popular trip for high school students and youth groups.
