For the past four years our group has served alongside Promised Land Ministries in San Lucas Toliman, Guatemala. This annual February Break has been an incredible opportunity for our group to connect with those in need by sharing the Gospel through word and deed.
During these trips, we:
- Help build a low-cost home
- Construct and deliver fuel-efficient, vented cooking stoves (reducing respiratory disease and fuel consumption)
- Lead children’s programming
- Help complete a fence surrounding a self-sustaining community feeding program
- Facilitate a soup kitchen.
We are excited to continue building relationships with the people of Guatemala as we partner with the community to meet the needs of those in San Lucas Tolimán.
