San Juan La Laguna, Guatemala | Group Mission Trips

Guatemala has a rich cultural heritage, stemming back to the age of the Mayans. Guatemala, a predominantly poor country, struggles in several areas of health and development, including malnutrition, illiteracy, and infant, child, and maternal mortality. In 2010 and 2011, a series of natural disasters hit Guatemala, causing an estimated $1,8 billion in damages and losses.

But there is hope. In this small community of San Juan La Laguna, several people are working tirelessly to encourage the Guatemalan people in sustainable solutions to obstacles. This team of Americans and Guatemalans serve alongside a Christian school and a women’s cooperative to provide education, coffee farming that benefits the farmers, community garden planning, and employment opportunities for women. When you serve in Guatemala, you bring support through helping in classrooms, building chicken coops for single mothers, assisting coffee farmers with their crops, and much more.

Skills

Taking a Group International Mission Trip lets you see the world through God’s eyes. You’ll gain a fresh perspective about the work God does in local communities throughout the world and that new view will make you more aware of the different cultures and misperceptions about where you’re serving. With a deeper insight, you’ll return home transformed. Plus, you’ll grow closer to Jesus through acts of service and get to know him more deeply. We’ve partnered with long-term ministries that are rooted in the countries we serve. As you’re reading this, they are passionately serving and loving their neighbors, working to meet physical and spiritual needs in Jesus’ name. When we arrive, we come alongside their efforts for long-lasting impact. Types of work vary based on location, no special skills are needed!

What We Will Do

Here are examples of the types of projects you might be involved with:

  • Light construction projects for schools
  • Assisting at a local coffee farm
  • Engaging in English language programs at a local school
  • Supporting a local women’s cooperative
  • Agricultural projects like maintaining a botanic garden
  • Improving land for higher crop yields

Our Partners

Our projects are chosen with the locals’ ongoing needs in mind, with coordination from local community members and non-profits to ensure we are making a long-lasting impact. You will surely get plenty of cultural interaction with Guatemalans as you serve in many beautification projects throughout the community of San Juan La Laguna. Each evening, some of our local partners in the community will join us for dinner, so that you can interact and get to know them better.
