Inquire About The Trip

What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

We partner with Helps International to replace open fires in homes with high-quality, low-cost, fuel-efficient cook stoves. These stoves are a life changing alternative for rural families, many of whom suffer from respiratory problems, and severe burns as a result of their open flames . Acute respiratory infection in children under the age of 5 is the leading cause of death in Guatemala, something that the installation of these cook stoves is working to avoid.

Additionally, these stoves will cut the time that families spend collecting firewood; freeing up time for (especially girls and women) to attend school or earn an income.

Each stove is $135, and (combined with other ministry opportunities), your team can install 30 of these stoves during a week-long trip!

In addition to the per person cost, this trip will have an additional fee of $4,455.00, to pay for 30 stoves to be installed. There is also the option to build more or less stoves depending on the team's ability and desires.

Relation of Opportunity to National Church and/or Long-term Goals

At most of our bases, the local ministries are run by long-term missionaries who are native to the country and know the specific needs of the communities they serve. They intentionally and consistently follow-up with the neighborhoods your team ministers to.
