Because of the short notice, we will need to rely heavily on help from friends and family to cover expenses for this trip. We are responsible for our funding. $2000 is what is due to the group John is traveling with. That will cover his airfare, transportation in Guatemala, meals, and lodging. We also hoping to come up with an additional $1500 for lost wages during the 6 work days he will be gone, and extra expenses, such as passport renewal, etc. That is not as crucial, but would help make this trip less of a strain on our family.
The Ministry he will be working with is WIND, which stands for When It Needs Doing. You can read more about them here: http://wind-guatemala.org/
If you feel so lead, we would be very grateful for your support in this! John is a wonderful technician, and has a heart for serving others. I am excited for him to be able to make this trip! Thank you for your consideration!
