Central is partnering with Fellowship Baptist Church, in Burford, to send a mission team to Guatemala, October 20-30.
This team will build relationships with the people of Cubulco, Guatemala while it works alongside them building Sunday School classrooms for a local church. The church itself was the product of a previous mission led by Fellowship Baptist Church. Our mission is to continue the good work and renew and strengthen the relationship that started with the first mission.
Make a Difference
Sharing God’s love is central to our faith. Cubulco is a place where we can make a real difference. The dedicated Guatemalans with whom we will be working, care deeply about their community and their World. Through the example of their faith and caring and their commitment to make a difference, our team will have the opportunity learn more about its faith and about what is possible in our World. This is an amazing opportunity to partner with Christians from another culture: to learn, to grow, to share God’s love and to make a difference in our World.
Our team leader is Alejandro Ortiz. Alejandro, was born and raised in Cubulco. This is his home-town and he knows the community very well. Alejandro, a Cambridge resident, is member and elder at Central. With a caring and passionate heart and one foot in each community, he is uniquely suited to lead this mission.
Over the next few months, there will be many opportunities for you to support our mission. Of course, you can donate to our efforts. You can also participate in fundraising event.
You can also volunteer to join our mission team. We are still looking for volunteers.
What does a volunteer look like?
Construction skills aren’t absolutely mandatory. Our team and our Guatemalan friends will teach you. We are looking for people who are relatively fit, have a humble, willing and caring heart, and a willingness to learn, not just about the work required but also about the people that we will be partnering with; their culture and their lives.
If you would like more information, you can contact Alejandro at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can take a look at our brochure.
