About This Trip

This is an 5 Day / 4 Night mission trip to Guatemala.

Join WOW Houston and Orphan Outreach in serving children in Guatemala.This family team will learn about the needs of children in Guatemala by meeting the children served by Orphan Outreach ministry sites. Visits will include the Community Care Center in Chimaltenango (serving more than 50 families and children from extreme poverty situations), Love the Child baby home (serving 40 babies and toddlers that have been abandoned or abused) and Hope & Future orphanage (serving more than 20 teen moms and children rescued from abuse, neglect, and trafficking). No trip to Guatemala is complete without some time spent enjoying the beautiful city of Antigua and a little shopping.

About Guatemala

UNICEF estimates that are over 370,000 orphans in Guatemala. Many of these children come from families facing extreme poverty; 70 percent of people in Guatemala live below the poverty level. Orphan Outreach ministers in Guatemala by partnering with local orphanages, churches, and Christian schools for children in extreme poverty situations. We also make it a priority to come alongside the Guatemalan nationals and work with them as they serve their own people.

Team Leader

An Orphan Outreach Staff Member or Trip Volunteer will lead the team in Guatemala.

Orphan Outreach Mission Trip Baggage Policy

All mission trip participants are responsible for the cost of their checked baggage. When traveling internationally, most airlines allow passengers to carry two checked bags at 50 pounds maximum. The cost of checked baggage depends on where you are traveling and your status with the airline. For the most up to date baggage allowances and fees, please check with each airline you are traveling on.

Occasionally we may ask trip participants to carry humanitarian aid and items needed for ministry in country. To save the cost of having to pay for the second bag on the return flight home, you can stuff a bag inside your other bag. Please ask before leaving behind a bag in your country of service.
