Guatemala Mission Trip, March 22-30, 2019
Members of Peace Lutheran Church have traveled and served in Chichicastenago Guatemala for six consecutive years. The 2019 Peace Team of 11 adults joined with 7 others from Shepherd of the Bay Lutheran Church in Door County to serve Mayan widows & children through Pray America/Manos de Jesus ("The Hands of Jesus") Ministry in Guatemala. We built 6 new 12 X 16' "widow homes", 2 bathrooms, installed 3 wood efficient stoves & 3 water filters all while working (or playing) side by side with these beautiful people. We returned to the newly built homes to follow Jesus example by "washing feet" of each family member and gifting them with a new pair of shoes. Additionally, we visited the ASELSI Christian Medical Clinic, participated in children's feeding programs & school shoe distribution, and made several family home visits--all with the purpose of building relationships and sharing the love of Jesus. Plans are already underway for a Spring 2020 mission trip. The Peace team is comprised of members and others from the Antigo area. For information, please contact Dan & Sarah Stoehr at (715) 484-2393.
