Guatemala Mission Trip
February 23, 2019 - March 3, 2019
February 23- March 3
$1850 per person
This mission will take us to Guatemala to help build a home for a family that is living currently with shelter which is poorly constructed and not suitable for withstanding wind and rain.
What will we do on the mission? We will be foremost representatives of Christ and St. Andrew UMC working with a family to build a small sturdy cinderblock style 2 room house that will keep the family safe from the weather.
Do you need specialized construction skills?
No. The work that our team will do is very basic. Any special technique needed will be taught to us and overseen by skilled local construction workers OR will be performed after we leave by the local construction team. The 4 ½ – 5 days we work on the home goes a long way to offset the work that will be done by the local team and reduces the cost of the construction.
If you are not able physically to participate in the actual construction BUT you want to join the team, there are support roles needed to be filled that are equally important.
