Hope for Guatemala
Special points of interest
We will be working at the Hope 4 Guatemala Ministry Center. Everyday the Center provides lunch, before/after school tutoring, and daily Bible lessons for local kids and youth. In addition to helping with the lunch program and tutoring, there are several outreach options based on the size and gifts of the group. Other service opportunities may include construction, soccer, farmer’s market pickup at CENMA, etc. We may have the opportunity to tour Antigua with its incredible architecture and markets.
