“Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.”

What is your mission?
How about a trip to Guatemala that touches lives?
LEARN and SERVE
Come learn about cultures, global realities, and the daily lives of the poor. Give the gift of your presence and compassion and in return, receive the gift of insight.
Be a part of making God’s love visible
Take the time to experience and truly appreciate the EIGHT BEATITUDES as you interact and work with the poor in San Lucas.
A MINISTRY of PRESENCE and A MINISTRY of DOING
There is a grossly uneven distribution of global wealth, and this provides an excellent opportunity for those who have been blessed with relative prosperity to reach out to those who are less fortunate. The journey of working with the poor will make lasting changes in their lives, and cause you to reflect and grow spiritually in life-giving ways. As you grow in your spiritual life through your interactions with the poor, you will witness God’s love. These interactions, relationships, and experiences gives your companions (the poor), the strength to hope, as they live from one day to the next. By doing missionary work, you will have a better understanding of the meaning of Christ’s message:
“Love your neighbor as yourself”
