This team partners with Youthworks to provide a Christ-Centered Mission trip for High School Youth. The Youth go to share God's love with the families and children of Cairo. Cairo is a small town along the Mississippi River that time and growth has forgotten. It is a city with many underprivileged families and the team going to Cairo is to provide assistance to families, their homes, and to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This is a summer trip that normally takes place in June.
Resurrection has been involved in Wheelchair ministry since 2003. Areas impacted include Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Belize. Each individual is given personal treatment to find the right wheelchair and education to use that chair and to live a fuller life with the help of their family. The team shares a Bible, prayer, and the Gospel with the recipient and their family. We prefer having local pastor/ churches to be alongside us so that these families will have a gospel ministry after the team leaves. This year's team will be going to Coban, Guatemala in June.
Our mission team just returned from Coban. Click on the photo to read the daily synopsis.
This team has a partnership with Central American Lutheran Missionary Society (CALMS - CALMS.org) and local Lutheran congregations in the Zacapa region of Guatemala. Beginning in 2007, a team has been going to build a home for a family that has substandard housing, provide a Vacation Bible School for the local children, and to assist the leaders in La Trementina. This team travels in November each year to take advantage of the best weather and the children on break from school.
