Guatemala Mission Trip Itinerary

We are finalizing our preparations for our Mission Trip to Guatemala, for the next 3 weeks we will be:

1. Practicing the faith lesson that we will be teaching the children, in Spanish.
2. Packing up all of the in-kind donations into checked-luggage.
3. Preparing our hearts and minds for the time we will be in Guatemala.
4. Packing up and driving to Milwaukee on Saturday, October 5th for our first flight on our journey to Guatemala.

The plan for each day that we are in Guatemala

Saturday, October 5th - Arrive in Guatemala City at 7:15 pm and travel by van to the mission house and settle in.

Sunday, October 6th - Attend worship at a typical Guatemalan church, then unpack and organize all of the in-kind donations we brought with us to Guatemala

Monday, October 7th - Visit Only a Child, which is a mission that supports young men to learn the trade of woodcrafting and attend school to ultimately live a life off the street. We may also be visiting the dump in Guatemala City to see reflect on the "work" that so many poor Guatemalans take up to provide for their families.

Tuesday, October 8th - Travel to El Rincon to visit with and pray with families in the village, then spend time playing with the children before we share our faith lesson, songs and craft with the children

Friday, October 11th - We may have time in the morning to go to a Mayan historical site or visit the coffee supplier. In the afternoon the children and parents from Guatamala City that are part of the scholarship program will come to the mission house for the faith lessons. In the evening we will prepare for our trip back home.

Saturday, October 12th - Travel to the airport for our trip back home. We will be staying overnight in Dallas, TX because our flight was cancelled and we were rebooked on a flight that leaves the next morning.

Sunday, October 13th - leave Dallas at 7:00 am and arrive back in Marshfield around noon.
