Guatemala Trip

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations

Matthew 28:19

Why do we go on missions trips?

In the Great Commission we are called to actually GO therefore and make disciples of all nations. Missions is joining God in reconciling the World to Him. There is no lack of clarity in the Gospel message that serving the poor is an essential component of following Christ. This being said, we not only seek to address the physical needs of the poor, but also recognize the desperate need for the message of hope in Jesus Christ in every corner of the earth. The missionary experience brings new, life-changing wisdom and perspective to all who serve on the mission. Again and again we see quality mission trip experiences show people how to use their lives to love and value others better. Mission trips equip and encourage us all to go home and love the communities in which we live!

Why Guatemala?

How can I be involved?

  • Pray
That the political landscape of Guatemala to change plus we always need the favour of the Lord in all aspects of the mission
  • Gather items needed for the mission
    Every time a team travels they always carry another piece of luggage to bring school supplies, toiletry items, medications, vitamins, and whatever else is needed for the people we will be ministering to.
  • Donate or volunteer to fundraise
    We support the Fe Viva mission base by paying room and board so they can hire locals to cook  for us while we are there.  We also purchase all the dental /medical supplies required to run these clinics as well as the food packages and other items handed out in the feeding  program and we purchase the stoves we install.  The more funds we have, the more supplies we buy,  the more effective the mission team will be on the ground!
  • Travel with us
    Not everyone can pack up all their belongings and become career missionaries, but many of us can go on short-term mission trips. If you’ve never tried it, we encourage you to consider these benefits of taking the compassion of Jesus to another culture where you will encounter God’s heart for other nations, expand your perspective on ministry, discover more of the Family of God in another country and feel the bond that only the Holy Spirit can initiate, and you will become more grateful.  Many who travel on these trips return with an attitude adjustment and a greater appreciation for life’s blessings that we often take for granted (like air conditioning, running water, good roads, flush toilets, etc).


When David defeated the Amalekites, he gave the same reward to the warriors who stayed behind to watch the baggage as he gave to the frontline soldiers who wielded swords (see 1 Sam. 30:22-25).

So, whether you go virtually or in person, let’s recognize the priority of missions. Let’s encourage every Christian to discover their role in God’s great plan to tell everyone about Jesus and His love.
