Guatemala Action Project
In 2011, Pease Church decided to move out Globally with our missions... We reached out to an organization called World Renew and we were soon matched up with an organization called Vid y Pampanos (Vine and Branches) in Quetzeltenango, Guatemala. In 2012, we sent our first group of global servants to Guatemala for a week! They spent their time building relationships with the leaders of Vid y Pampanos and the people of the rural mountain communities they serve. They spent their days traveling around the countryside visiting the local people, learning about their culture and listening to their hearts.
Since then, we have sent a group every February. On all these trips, time is spent working along side and building relationships with the wonderful people Vid y Pampanos works with. Our church works alongside these communities to support the people of Guatemala through friendships that bring hope and encouragement as well as providing funds which enable them to complete projects for schools and roads.
They will continue to build on existing relationships and hopefully forge some new ones. Our entire church has been involved in different aspects of making this trip possible. From making and selling apple pies, to congregational offerings, prayers, making different projects to send along and many other things that have been happening behind the scenes...
Our GAP Team enters its final few weeks of preparation for their trip Feb.23–March 3, 2019 to Guatemala.
Team members include: Jessica TenHaken, Bethany TenHaken, Linda Droogsma, Paul Peterson, Teresa Wickeham, John Goslinga, Julie Goslinga, Julee Moorlag, Terri Krahnke, Mark & Terri Baas, and Ron Seger. Please pray for these individuals as they prepare for their trip as representatives of our church family and Christ’s ambassadors sharing the message of “Love God, Love Others."
