Short-Term Mission Trip 2011 *Guatemala*

Gateway Community Church

And we're off!  This summer we will head to Casa Aleluya Children's Home in San Bartolome Milpas Altas (outside of Guatemala City).  My church hosts this mission trip every year and is a great opportunity to sacrifice for others and experience a world outside of our comfort zones.  This year will be my 5th overseas mission trip with Gateway, and what an experience it has been!  This trip challenges your values and bring into focus things that seem to be blurred in life.  It's a time of hard work, fun and fellowship.

Every year we participate in different activities, it's always a surprise but we are up for the challenge!  Stay tuned for details and pictures from our trip. I will post them as soon as we return.  Pray for our team, there will be about 30 of us representing Gateway Community Church :)

Here are some of my favorite pictures from this trip ~
