Jesus is the Light of the World

Jesús es la Luz del Mundo

May 29-June 5, 2017

For the last 16 years mission volunteers having being traveling to Latin America, Mexico and Guatemala to fulfill the Great Commission… go, disciple, baptize and teach the Good News of Christ Jesus.

In 2016, we had 48 volunteers make the journey to Ricon de Pacya outside of Guatemala City to partner with Clubhouse Guatemala to be on mission for Christ.

As summarized by Paula Hood, “Our days were full from sun up to sun down with various ministries including food packing and delivery, medical and dental missions (to over 450 in 4 days), VBS to 165+ children, shoe distribution with accompanying foot washing for the children, teaching a micro-industry project of mat making, training for local pastors, bed assembly and distribution to homes of villagers who were sleeping on the floor, witnessing and evangelism,  and taking care of the physical upkeep of the camp.  Through it all, God took care of us and helped us to move beyond ourselves and love other brothers and sisters to whom we could communicate God’s love even without knowing their language.  I thank God for the opportunity, for His watch care, for the friends we made in Guatemala and the relationships he strengthened at Central Baptist.  My prayer is that this trip will live in our hearts and change the way we are and what we do for years to come.”
