My reasons for going on the Guatemala missions trip are many. I want to help the less fortunate of course, but also to be humbled and return home with a better appreciation for the privileged life I have in the USA. I also hope that my interactions with local Guatemalan people will reflect Christian values. Last but not least I hope to build a stronger bond with my fellow team members.
It’s three days until departure and I somewhat reserved compared to others but I’m sure I will have more emotions when we start the trip.
