Itinerary: Doing Ministry in Guatemala

In a few days, I will join a team of guys and gals and head to Guatemala for a week and a half. We will go on a mission trip with a lot of opportunities to serve the people of that country.

If you want to see what we’ll be doing and/or want to know how to pray specifically for us on this trip, just scroll down the page.

I’m thankful for Carey and April Alexander who have been doing ministry in Guatemala for many years. They have paved a well-worn trail of ministry that they will lead us on in a few days. I’m looking forward to seeing what God will do through us for His glory!
