Trip Details

In Guatemala City, Guatemala, we partner with Nathan Hardeman of Engadi Ministries as well as missionaries Brandon and Rachel Loftus who help lead a Christian school.

On these trips, we aim to get into their lives for a week — to see and learn from all God is doing to establish His kingdom there. We take a serving posture and will work on projects that benefit their community and ministries.
