Trip By: Casas por Cristo
Location: Guatemala, Central America
When: May 9 to August 2, 2020
Spend three months facilitating volunteer teams and building homes for impoverished families in San Raymundo, Guatemala while partnering with local Guatemalan pastors to minister to these families.
As an intern with Casas por Cristo, you will play a vital role in this ministry and have a life-changing experience. We offer a great program that allows you an opportunity to become involved in mission work, impacting hundreds of lives. You’ll work directly with families in need, other interns, and available teams of volunteers as you build partnerships that give families homes and an opportunity to know the love of Jesus in a very real and tangible way.
As an intern, you will spend the first three weeks of your summer doing on-site training. After this, you will be partnered with other interns to build homes and lead available teams through the building process. When available you will be guiding a team through the Casas por Cristo experience – helping them navigate the city they’re in, introducing them to the family they are going to serve, directing them through the building process, and problem solving on the work site. You will also have the opportunity to share your testimony with your teams and other interns as you facilitate their mission’s experience. There will be several weeks that you will not be leading a team of volunteers. During those weeks you will be partnering with your fellow interns to build a home for a family. The experiences you will have will be a tremendous opportunity for physical, emotional, and spiritual growth.
