Mission Guatemala

The Onalaska UMC building is not the only construction we’re working on! As we celebrate our own updated and expanded building, we are also celebrating construction projects that are coming to life in Guatemala!

From November 16-25, OUMC is sending 15 people—from middle school  students to senior citizens—to Panajachel, Guatemala. They’ll partner with “Mission Guatemala”, a top-rated United Methodist Mission that has been on the ground in Guatemala since 2009. (www.missionguatemala.com)

Our OUMC mission team will work alongside community members on construction projects designed and led by the local Guatemalan people. They will likely continue work on an education building, installing metal roofing, applying stucco, and more. They may also construct fuel-efficient wood-burning stoves for homes in the community.

Please be in prayer for our mission team as they travel, build relationships with local people, and work on these important community projects.   Whether you’re supporting our mission team with prayer, financial help, or by going on the trip itself, we thank you all for being a part of this adventure!
