Guatemala Mission (Postponed)
March 14, 2020 - March 21, 2020
Update: Due to the continued and increasing concerns about the outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), Shadyside Presbyterian Church has decided to follow the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Presbyterian Mission Agency by postponing our planned trip to Guatemala. Presently, there are no reported cases of COVID-19 in Guatemala, while cases have been confirmed in Pennsylvania and Houston, Texas (where our team was to make a flight connection). We do not wish to risk introducing COVID-19 to the residents of the Lake Atitlan region, and, out of concern for their health, we feel the best way for us to serve our neighbors at this time is for us to pray for them from a distance. We will share an update when we are able to plan a rescheduled visit to serve alongside our partners at Promised Land Ministries.
Our spring trip to work alongside our mission partner in Guatemala, Promised Land Ministries, is scheduled for March 14 through 21, 2020. In addition to a medical mission team, we need team members willing to work with children and construction ministries. No experience is required. Brochures are available in the Narthex and Sharp Atrium; please take one. Applications are due by Sunday, November 17. If you have questions, please contact Rev. Todd Leach, Associate Pastor for Missions.
