Coming Soon: Guatemala Mission Trip

November 25, 2016 | Justin Walker

Coming up spring break 2017, is our annual UCC Youth Mission Trip to San Luis, Guatemala. We will be traveling down for about two weeks to witness to the people of a small village nearby by building a church, spending time with the children by putting on a Vacation Bible School program and visiting the other churches built on previous mission trips.

Sabbath will be an especially blessed day as we will be consecrating the church we will have built. This is a wonderful opportunity for all who join us to see another culture and grow in Christ as well as provide for a need that the people have. We look forward to the time we will have to spend with the young people that join us, and we are eager to go and serve those who do not have as much.

This is a tremendous opportunity for young people who are interested in serving, as well as anyone who wants to support them and this ministry. There are a few ways you can support us on this trip.

The first is to pray. We ask that you pray for the people of Guatemala who we are going to serve and for all those who are going, that they would have their hearts and minds open to the guidance of the Holy Spirit. There is no work that we can do on this earth without the intervention of the Holy Spirit; God alone can change the hearts of men. It is our privilege to be a part of that process.

The second way that you can help is to give your financial support to an individual you know who is going along on the trip. If you do not know anyone in particular, we would still greatly appreciate your support. It costs $1,900 for each person going on this trip, and most of the people going have to raise much or all of that money. We appreciate any financial help you can give us as a whole or to an individual member of the team.

If you would like to donate, you can find all the information you need online at, or call the UCC Youth department at 509-242-0506.

Thank you for your prayers and support as we continue in the service of our Lord.
