What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Beauty for Ashes - Latin America

Known as "The Land of Eternal Spring", Guatemala is rich in natural beauty—from the shores of Lake Atitlan, to the peaks of its 37 volcanoes, this Central American nation is one of the most beautiful in the world. 

The true beauty of Guatemala is its people. 

Gripped by poverty, the people of Guatemala hunger for the Kingdom of God. The majority of Guatemalans practice a form of Catholicism, and it’s estimated many also mix in ancient tribal religions and cultural traditions into their faith. 

In 2007, Guatemala's orphan population was estimated at 370,000—in a country whose overall population is only 15 million.

When international adoptions from Guatemala closed in 2007, the number has only continued to rise as orphanages have become overcrowded and more children are abandoned due to poor living conditions. 

Ministry Overview 

You'll get to serve alongside our Adventures Guatemala Base under the leadership of the Base’s full-time Beauty for Ashes coordinator. 

Your team will:

  • Host Beauty for Ashes retreats, creating a space for God to bring hope, healing, and redemption to the stories of local women.

  • Be equipped to share about topics such as worth, identity, healing, and forgiveness with others through storytelling and vulnerability.

  • Build meaningful relationships with your team and those with whom you minister.

  • Gain a deeper understanding of who God is and who you are as His daughter.


Your team will stay at our Adventures Guatemala base with bunk beds, showers, and bathrooms. Electricity and spotty wifi are available too. Meals will be prepared by cooks at the base, and you will have access to clean water. It's a beautiful place, filled with great community and incredible times of worship.


You’ve got a story to tell. It’s significant, powerful, and you want it to count for something.

You know about women who are suffering and being victimized, and your heart breaks for them.

That's exactly how Ruth and her team felt on the very first Beauty for Ashes trip in 2014. They wanted to see women set free from the lies they had believed for years. On that trip, Ruth met a woman named Nancy. She realized this new friend had a story in need of God’s redemption. After her time with Ruth, Nancy began believing God's truth — her story does matter.

Psalm 107:2 says “Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story.” Since 2014, Beauty for Ashes has reached over 5,000 women in 25 countries because of people like you, who are willing to share their story of redemption. We’ve hosted hundreds of retreats and small groups around the world, and have seen our curriculum proven as an effective tool God is using to foster lasting change in the lives of women.

God longs for His daughters to join Him in an intimate relationship. He desires to walk with them through healing and remind women of the identity and hope they have in Him.

If you want to join a Christ-centered community of women committed to taking God’s love to all of the nations, then it’s time for you to join us in Guatemala.

Mission Trip Offered By Adventures in Missions

You want to follow Jesus’s example in the way He cared for the lost and the hurting. You want to take up Jesus’s commission to make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28) and be His witness to the ends of the earth (Acts 1).

Adventures in Missions is an interdenominational missions organization that focuses on discipleship. We emphasize prayer and relationships in our work around the world. We seek to disciple as Jesus did; our vision is that God would use us to raise up a generation of radically committed disciples of Jesus Christ.

Since we were established in 1989, we have taken over 115,000 people into the mission field, some for as short as a week and others for as long as a year or longer. We minister year-round through our ministry bases and strategic ministry partnerships. We believe that by giving people the opportunity to step outside their comfort zones and join what God is doing in other cultures and nations, lives are transformed.
