Guatemala Mission Trip

We are excited to work alongside one of our own church members Sara (Drake) Salguero and her family at Casa Bernabé. The orphanage is a beautiful 13-acre campus near Guatemala City. It is home to more than 100 children who come out of difficult living situations. At Casa Bernabé (House of Comfort) children find acceptance, stability and healing in the love of Jesus. Join us January 11-25 as we return to Casa Bernabé to serve the children as well as the adults who serve them year-round. It’s never to late to join our team!


CASA BERNABE
Casa Bernabé Ministries exists to provide hope for vulnerable children in Guatemala, both within the walls of its campus and also within the surrounding community. The ministry seeks to provide the framework needed for each child to step out from the past trauma of their lives by providing physical needs, medical and psychological care, and spiritual guidance. Children are ministered to in church and youth group and educated in the Christian school on campus. Lives are transformed as the ties of generational poverty and abuse are broken.  By working with the Guatemalan court systems and biological families Casa Bernabé Ministries is leading the way in Guatemalan Global Orphan Care.

Edgar and Sara met in 2002 and were married 5 years later in 2007.
