Posted April 29, 2019
JUNE 30 – JULY 7, 2019
The mission of Faith Project International (FPI) is to improve the lives of the poor of Guatemala by releasing hope and healing in Jesus’ name. Join the Cowherd and Rivera families from Mosaic as they host a family trip to Guatemala. The mission is located in San Antonio Ilotenango, a rural Mayan village about 3.5 hours NW of Guatemala City. Team members will get to work alongside Guatemalan families to build wood burning stoves and latrines in their homes. There is work all ages can perform from 5 to 105. Guatemala is amazing country full of contrasts– poor and rich, mountains and oceans. FPI strives to reach people for Jesus while making their lives better in the short term with poverty alleviation work. Before returning home the team will make a stop at Lake Atitlan, a beautiful volcano ringed lake.
