Families and students from USA are also welcomed in Guatemala by Catholic families who will share time in different academic, religious and touristic activities or attend a mission.
Guatemala, the beautiful country with the spring weather, year round, has much to offer to its visitors. There is also much to do to help people in this developing nation. People are very thankful, friendly and appreciative.
Their Catholic faith is strongly rooted. A mission trip to this country can change your views and feelings about other cultures. It becomes a lifetime opportunity to reach out and change the course of someone´s life, including your children’.
It changes many perspectives. Traveling and meeting new people helps extend friendship bonds and helps you realize there are so many things that are taken for granted. In essence, we are all ONE under One God. Everyone is created equally. Language is not a barrier anymore.
Students can travel with their families, or by themselves by joining the missionary group.
