During the mornings, volunteers will have the opportunity to study Spanish with experienced teachers, and dive into the rich traditions and history of the region. Volunteers will also have the chance to explore the Scriptures and participate in devotions, gaining a deeper understanding of their faith and the role they can play in serving others.

In the afternoons, volunteers will have the opportunity to serve at a local school, teaching subjects such as English and Mathematics to children in the area. This is a great opportunity for volunteers to make a real impact in the community, and to work closely with local teachers and families to support the education and development of local children.

Throughout the trip, volunteers will stay with a local family who will care for them during their journey. This will provide a unique opportunity for volunteers to immerse themselves in local customs and traditions, and to build meaningful relationships with people from different backgrounds.

7th international trip led by Mission Discovery. The organization is blessed to have good Godly leaders whose hearts balance the challenges that come with running a trip for novices in a foreign land. Your organization is truly blessed by God. Keep up the great work. It truly changes lives!

I enjoyed meeting Nathan and having him lead our group. I was disappointed he did not learn our names, but I know he was extra busy with having 5 sites to oversee. Song leader Elena made the most personal connection of all staff members and her story was deeply moving to many of our teens. The interns (Kelly and Ashley) were less well-received. Ashley in particular was rather cold and the teens felt she was cutting them down rather than lifting them up. I believe it’s a reflection of her age & a need to mature more before being viewed as a mentor and leader.

From the work to the worship, to the logistics to the spirit and hearts of the Mission Discovery staff, our experience was world-class and one we will always treasure!

I had an amazing experience in Guatemala! The service experience, which was perfectly ran, was truly an awesome opportunity to not only learn about a new culture, but also to help to Guatemalan people.
