2017 GUATEMALA MISSION TRIP

March 12- 17, 2017

San Raymundo, Guatemala

The 2017 San Raymundo, Guatemala Mission Trip is scheduled for March 12-17, 2017. We have slots for 12 people. A $100 deposit is due by January 10 (total trip cost is approximately $1100). If you would like to sign up for the trip complete the online registration form and the $100 deposit via PayPal.

Community Reformed is partnering with Cas Por Cristo to build a three room house for a family in San Raymundo, Guatemala. Located at the southern tip of México, Guatemala is the most populated country in Central America. Of its more than 13 million inhabitants, approximately 75% live below the poverty line. San Raymundo is a rural town located beyond the bustling streets of Guatemala City. The majority of the Guatemalans we serve reside in the rural mountainous areas around San Raymundo. These mountainous country sides are where you find the heart of this nation.

Many of the outlying villages are scattered with homes made of wood or bamboo and covered by rusty tin roofs. The inside of homes are typically sparse with only the most basic necessities: a fire pit to cook meals, ceramic jugs for holding water, and mats woven from Palms which are rolled out onto the dirt floor at night and used for sleeping.

Due to the lack of resources, women and children often suffer most from the poverty. Children are malnourished and forced to work to help provide for their family. With an extremely high illiteracy rate, the problem continues to grow. Although many public schools are free, uniforms, books and transportation are still a required expense. Rather than learning in classrooms, many children spend their days rolling wicks for fireworks to help with the family income.  Many residents continue to struggle through seasonal labor on coffee, cotton and sugar plantations. With adequate housing provided, families are relieved of one of their greatest financial struggles and a break is made in this vicious cycle. Children are given a hope for the future while parents can use their resources for food and necessities rather than shelter. As the American church partners with the Guatemalan church a perfect picture of the Gospel is painted as cultures and nations are bridged together bringing about necessary provisions in the name of Christ.
