We are going back to Guatemala!
November 22-29, 2014
Christ Fellowship team members will be heading to Zacapa, Guatemala to once again partner with Hope of Life as they serve those in need in the name of Jesus.

Why we go:
At Christ Fellowship we believe that the Bible calls us to be the hands and feet of Jesus in physical, practical ways while sharing with those we serve the love of the Savior. We do not believe we are called to do this only once a year in a foreign country, but that we are to look for opportunities to serve those in need all around us. However, with one of the highest malnutrition rates in the world, the needs in Guatemala are extreme. With Hope of Life we have the opportunity to come alongside a local organization that is striving to save lives, meet needs, and share God’s love every single day. Partnering with churches in America and other countries helps the local staff be able to reach out to many more people and save many more lives. Going also helps us to create unity between us and the suffering in other countries: they realize that they are cared for and not forgotten, and we are assured that they are real people who should be loved and not merely statistics.
What we will do:
Our main goal is to come alongside Hope of Life and assist them in any way that we can, so this means flexibility is mandatory. Tasks could include construction projects, working in a warehouse sorting donations and relief supplies, serving meals at a feeding center, distributing food or other aid, singing songs and playing games with children in a village, visiting with residents at the home for the elderly, painting projects, and many other things. And, of course, visiting with the babies at the rescue center and the children at the orphanage is always a highlight of any visit to Hope of Life.
Who can come:
This is a very flexible project, so it is open to a wide variety of people! You need to be physically able to handle lots of walking, heat, and sleeping in dorm style rooms. You also need to be ready to put serving others first and to submit to team leadership while we are on the trip. This is a family friendly trip, so children of elementary age and older are welcome to attend with their parent(s). Of course, you should prayerfully consider your child’s ability to handle the stresses that are inevitably a part of a trip of this nature.
