Guatemala - Arenales Work Trip

Northlake church has booked a short term mission trip to Huehuetenango Guatemala for July 14th - 24th. The trip will be a continuation of our ministry established 3 years ago to the church in Arenales, Guatemala. Two years ago we sent a short term team to install a roof over the church that the local congregation had partially completed. Last year we sent a team to pour a cement floor over the dirt floor in the church. This year we will continue to help the Arenales church by pouring a cement floor in the kitchen area and providing much needed ventilation by building an open fireplace in the kitchen and worship center. We will also plan on running additional electrical circuits in the mission house in Huehue.

There are other numerous smaller projects and this will be a hands on work project. Last year's mission trips ran about $1200 - $1500 per person, we'll know more once we get closer to booking our flights. We will stay in the Huehue mission house and travel each day up to Arenales, about an hour trip each way. There will be limited sightseeing opportunities  at the Mayan ruins in Huehue and at Antiqua, an early Spanish town. Any question please contact Steve Davis at sdavis6612@comcast.net

Dates: July 14th - 24th
Cost: Approximately $1500
Leaders: Steve Davis
*Note: This trip is recommended for adults and teens. Arenales is at 10,000' in elevation. As well it will be somewhat strenuous with the work projects and sleeping arrangements.
