Common Hope Guatemala
We have an amazing mission trip opportunity through our international ministry partner – Common Hope. A group from Faith Lutheran will be traveling to Guatemala with Pastor Katie on March 1-8, 2020.
 
This trip will include many facets of Common Hope’s work. We’ll build a house. We will do social work visits. We’ll visit our sponsored children. We’ll venture into the schools, and we’ll do a “day in the life” of a typical family. We’ll visit rural villages and we’ll spend a lot of time in the beautiful and historic city of Antigua. We will also have time to do a “cultural activity” and other fun things, in addition to the mission work. This will be a life-changing trip and you will not regret going! You do not need any special talents or skills to join the team.
 
Adults and teenagers fourteen and older are invited to experience this transformational trip. All-inclusive expenses for this trip are roughly $2500 per person. However, Common Hope will assist us with fundraising to minimize that expense as much as possible.
 
If this sounds exciting, I’d love to talk with you more about it. We are limited to fifteen spots, and we already have a significant number of those filled. So please contact Jill Sinclair ASAP if you’d like to hear more. She can be reached at cjsinclair@embarqmail.com or 952-442-4949.
Your presence will have an impact, and you will be impacted.
 
First orientation meeting is October 23 from 7-9pm in Steiner Hall. Contact Jill Sinclair at cjsinclair@embarqmail.com  or 612-201-8711 with questions.
