guatemalan women

You are invited to visit Guatemala October 28 through November 4 in a trip sponsored jointly by the Presbyteries of the James and the Peaks.

The focus of this visit is on migration and ministry and how we can go deeper in our understanding and response.

  • Learn about the root causes of migration, who is leaving, and why. Engage with people at the margins.
  • Be a witness to Christ’s presence and experience how the church is seeking to respond.
  • Learn from our partners at CEDEPCA (Protestant Center for Pastoral Studies) how we can be part of the solution., especially through the ministry of CEDEPCA.

This trip will encourage us to grow as global Christians and connect us with brothers and sisters in need in Guatemala, especially through the ministry of CEDEPCA.

The tour will begin in Guatemala City, travel to the countryside, and include a visit to the famous kite festival on the “Day of the Dead.”

The trip costs $950 per person plus airfare. Some financial assistance is available from the presbytery.
