Santa Cruz del Quiché, Guatemala  (Trip Full)

June 15 - 26, 2022

Come join QHM in Santa Cruz del Quiché, Guatemala for our long-awaited first trip in 2022! The team will help grow their church communties through evangelistic work in Santa Cruz del Quiché. The team will present the My Friend Jesus evangelistic series and the Friendship Hour children's programs at five sites in the city. The team will also hold daily health screenings, including a free dental clinic, and participate in a church renovation project during the week.

    

Trip Overview

Your mission with Quiet Hour Ministries in Guatemala will be to share how the love and grace of Jesus has the power to change lives. You will be completely immersed in a new culture, serving alongside local church members to bring hope to the precious people in their communities.

Each day will bring you into contact with different people, each one a child of God. However, many of them don’t share our hope in Jesus’ soon return. Your team will get the opportunity to serve them by participating in the activities outlined below.

The team typically splits in two for the morning activities. Half the team will help with the facilitation of a free basic health screening, which includes eye testing and the provision of reading glasses where needed, while the rest of the team will work with some of the church members on a church renovation or construction project.

UPDATE: We have a dentist signed up to join us on this trip so we will also be holding a free dental clinic as part of the basic health screening.

The evening meetings will take place at venues around town where team members will take on different roles including preaching our My Friend Jesus sermon series, sharing some basic health principles, or helping to facilitate a children’s program. All materials are provided in advance for you to become familiar with, so don’t worry if you’ve never done any of this before!

You will return home with the joy of creating new friendships and building partnerships. You will be a witness to the power of the Holy Spirit working in the lives of the people in Guatemala. We can’t wait to serve the people of Santa Cruz del Quiché with you!

At the same time, we affirm the Seventh-day Adventist Church recommendation of the responsible use of vaccines as an important public health measure, especially during a pandemic.

Accordingly, to support the Seventh-day Adventist Church health message and to utilize the best possible protections to our team members and international partners, QHM is choosing to offer mission trip opportunities only to individuals who are fully vaccinated* against COVID-19. Additional immunizations may also be required depending on country-specific regulations and current travel restrictions.

You will need to provide QHM with evidence of being fully vaccinated* no later than two weeks prior to departure.

Requirements for entry into Guatemala can chage often. We will do our best to keep you up to date on the requirements as we get closer to departure**.

The United States requires all arriving travelers to present a negative COVID test administered the day before your flight to the US. Your team leader will arrange for all team members to get tested prior to departing Guatemala.
