Mission Trip for John & Taylor



Hey everyone!

My wife Taylor and I have been blessed with a last minute opportunity to be a part of our church's mission trip to Guatemala which leaves this Friday, July 25th. Both of us have carefully considered and pray for a full day, and after all the doors have been opened, we have decided to go on the trip! We're both very excited about going on our first mission trip together, and this will also be Taylor's first mission trip ever so she's extra excited for that!

We will be going to the city of La Esperanza which is located approximately 4 hours northwest of Guatemala City. We will be working with a church plant of ours there called Calvary Chapel La Esperanza. Our main priority while visiting there will be to assist our church plant by helping them work with the students in the local school district. Calvary Chapel La Esperanza has been able to establish a thriving relationship with the head of the local school district, and they are allowed to regularly spend time in different schools teaching ethics and bible classes for the older youth, as well as provide an afterschool program for the children. Other priorities of ours during the trip will be improving infrastructure at the church and in the community, teaching, mentoring, spreading the gospel, and of course having fun with the children via sports.

We're asking that you would consider supporting us spiritually through prayer and encouragement as well as financially by helping offset some of our expenses for the trip along with the time off of work next week. 

Thank you all for your support! 

Love,

John & Taylor Wade
