Fraser Lands Church has sent a student team to Guatemala for the last eight years. Each year the students return with a greater sense of God-given purpose to help and meet the needs of the poor, and the mistreated, as modeled by Jesus Christ himself.
Our church will be sending a team once again from July 26 to August 8, 2019.
The main purpose for this service project is to join in partnership with the organization Educando Para La Vida (Education For Life) and their work in the town of Zaragoza, 1.5 hours west of Guatemala City. Their work consists of building connections with local children and teenagers in Zaragoza, many who come from poor families who can’t afford education for their children. Through the tutoring program Educando Para La Vida operates, children will receive good education, both in academics and practical life skills as well as a nutritious meal. Our service team will be raising funds to provide upgrades to the the kitchen, dining, and teaching facilities that will further promote the core value of the organization, education and nutrition for life.
Please consider supporting the Guatemala Team (Cameron Kwan, Ernest Lam, Jade Yeung, Julia Kwan, Matthew Chu, Megan Tai, and Lawrence Kong) as they raise funds and prepare for the project. We are trusting the Lord and our church family for the project costs ($14000)
Offering generously given toward the Guatemala Team can be made by cash/cheque to "Fraser Lands Church" designated to "Guatemala STM"
