2016 Guatemala Mission Trip

Guatemala 2016

Sun. June 26 – Sun. July 3

For the past 4 summers our group had had a phenomenal experience working with a ministry called Impacto. God has provided and movedin tangible ways; so we’re returning again in 2016!

We will be taking a team to the Lake Atitlan region of Guatemala from June 26th to July 3rd. Impacto is a ministry that works throughout Central and South America. Guatemala is one of the poorest countries in Central America and provides a great opportunity to serve. Impacto’s mission is: “To bring salvation, hope, healing, and peace of Christ to the Spanish-speaking world.

Our group will be working with Impacto in numerous ways: constructing homes for widows’ families, doing Vacation Bible Schools, feeding programs, as well as many other services provided for the poor and lost of Guatemala.

If you’re interested in details of the trip, feel free to call the STS Office at (404) 591-2470.

You can pick up the application in the STS Office or email to request a copy via email.

Cost: we are still determining the final cost, please check back for updates!

This trip is currently open to 9th-12th grade students (2015-2016 school year).
