Pearson's Guatemala Trip

Our mission connection center received information from Jerot Pearson about a service project opportunity in Guatemala. Due to the massive rains and mud slides that have devastated that country, there is a group preparing to go to help a family prepare a site for a new home in January of 2011. Damage to the homes has been significant and even took lives. The family who has chosen a new site for the building of a new home on higher ground where it will be safe from the land and mud slides is the Evangelina and Jose Guarcas family.

A friend of the Pearson family from Gardner, Kansas, is committing a month to work through the first phase of building project which should be finished by February, 2011. The first trip to help the family is planned for February 11 – 20.The mission group would be working side by side with the family and local laborers to build the planned house. The house will be built with concrete block; the roof will be metal and will resemble the typical housing in the area. Ultimately 8 family members will live in the home.

Arrangements will be made for the group through Transformational Journeys and will cost approximately $1750 per person for about a 10 day trip. If you are interested in this mission, I can put you in touch with Jerot Pearson. Should anyone want to sponsor a group member, this could also be arranged.
