Building Homes & Hope In Guatemala
In 2015 the WF youth mission team will travel to San Raimundo, Guatemala to build homes from the dirt to the roof in partnership with Casas por Cristo and a coalition of local pastors. The team works on the home for 4 days then presents the home to the proud new home-owning family in a dedication ceremony. Youth will have a chance to expand their worldview, make sacrifices for the good of others, and be blessed by developing a heart of service.
