Off We Go...to Guatemala
Organized by: Sarah Bigney
May 13, 2016
EVENT DATE Jul 17, 2016
We will be working a group of 40 volunteers to work and spread the love of God in Santa Maria de Jesus. The village is in the Sacatepéquez region in Guatemala. A city of approximately 18,000, it ranks as one of the highest in chronic malnutrition, stunted growth, infant mortality, and illiteracy in Central America. Some of our projects this year are: bunk bed building, roofing, donations, child sponsorship and VBS. There are some new projects in the works and I will update you as more information becomes available!
Please keep reading to find out all of the donations options.
Please consider sponsoring our family of 4 as we serve for a week in Guatemala. The cost per person is $1,700. This cost includes airfare, lodging, and food. I have factored in $400 additional dollars to help us be able to take 400 lbs. of donations with us. Any additional funds that we raise will go right to MMM to help with the cost of our projects in Guatemala. There are a couple options for donations, please see below:
1. If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation, please write a check to The Mission Fund (put Moving Mountains on the memo line). Send checks to: Sarah Bigney, 120 Crown St., Jamestown, NY 14701.
We will then send your check to the sponsor church so you will receive a receipt to keep for your records.
2. You can make a donation directly through this site! These donations are not tax-deductible. Please make sure to check the box that you'd like 100% of your donation to come to our cause. There is a small additional fee to cover the cost of using your credit card. If you do not check that box the fee will come out of the donation that you give. Either way, any amount that we receive is greatly appreciated.
3. Donations can also be sent directly to us. These donations are not tax-deductible (unless the check is made out to The Mission Fund).
With your support and prayers we will be serving in Guatemala July 17-24, 2016. Thank you for your time and consideration. If you have any questions or would like to be a part of our group email updates during our mission, please send Sarah an email so that we can include you in our list. firstname.lastname@example.org.
I (Sarah) also keep a blog while in Guatemala. Feel free to visit our site to learn about the amazing work God did in 2015 and don't forget to check back for Guatemala 2016 updates!

Last, but certainly not least, prayers are greatly appreciated. We can't thank you enough for your prayers, your support, and your donations. I can't tell you how much of a huge part you all play in changing the lives of those in Guatemala all for God's Kingdom. THANK YOU!
Sarah, Michael, Conor, and Nick
