Church of the Ascension Guatemala Mission Trip June 2000

These pages capture one person's viewpoint of the Church of the Ascension Guatemala Mission Trip June 3-10th, 2000. I kept a daily journal during the mission which has been transcribed here, and have integrated photos taken by myself or others when available. This was the first time I have ever participated in something like this. I kept the journal for my own learning, but decided to publish it on the web in order to 1) help my trip sponsors better understand what happened during the trip, and 2) share my experiences with anyone else contemplating short-term missions work.

Given that God is infinite, and this was just one person's experience, your milage may vary.
