Guatemala is a country rich in scenery, culture, hospitality, and awe-inspiring displays of God’s creation. It’s also a country continually battling the crushing weight of poverty. You will experience nothing short of a new, life changing perspective of humility, grace, and compassion. You will have a chance to listen to the stories of the locals, talk about your faith, build new relationships, and to humbly offer your time in the form of education, children’s ministry, youth outreach, all with the message of hope found in Jesus Christ. The possibilities are abundant and the need is real.

Guatemala

outreach

outreach

We will primarily be working with Breaking Cycles, a ministry based in Sumpango, Guatemala. We will get to do everything from constructing homes from the ground up, leading VBS children’s ministries, and doing home visits to share the Gospel in nearby villages.

safety

safety

Royal Servants takes the safety and health of each participant seriously. We go to great lengths to ensure that participants remain healthy and safe throughout the trip. Therefore, no participant is allowed to be alone in any city; Royal Servants always travel in groups of three or more, and when possible, with either a male or Summer Staff in each group. The Trip Leaders also continually monitor conditions within the host country both before and during the trip. If a situation arises that threatens the security of the team, either politically or from environmental conditions, the team will be moved to a stable location.

adventure

adventure

In Guatemala, you will enjoy some of the most amazing and diverse landscapes you have ever seen. From exploring Mayan ruins to enjoying beautiful views of active volcanoes, Adventure is everywhere you turn. You’ll get to explore local markets and try your hand at bartering, swim in the deepest lake in Central America, and perhaps even ride a horse!


experience culture

experience culture

You do not need to know any Spanish to be part of the team, but whatever you do know you will certainly get to practice in real life! There is culture to experience all over, whether you’re visiting the ruins of the Mayan capital city, or walking to the local tienda for that latin Dorito’s knockoff to which you’ve grown addicted. And that’s not even mentioning the coffee!

spiritual growth

spiritual growth

There are countless ways God may choose to work in your life this summer. You may find yourself growing in gratitude as you experience the culture shock of how little others possess. Perseverance may be another area of growth as we will have a very busy schedule, sometimes filled with the manual labor of mixing cement for the foundation of a house you’re building. Perhaps even in just building the habits of daily Scripture reading, focused memorization, and regular small group discussions, you will grow in your faith.

who should go

who should go

Anyone who wants to grow in their ability to share the Gospel, be pulled outside their comfort zone, or perhaps those who love Latin culture! If you are ready to serve God and get to the end of each day with no doubt in your mind you worked hard for the Kingdom, this trip is for you!

eating & Sleeping

eating & sleeping

Expect that our meals will be a balance between Training Camp and some classic Guatemalan cuisine and, with our ministry being on the go each day, we’ll have sandwiches for lunch most days! Throughout our ministry in Sumpango we will be staying at the ministry site, sleeping on our own mats and sleeping bags.

debriefing

The last 4-5 days of each trip are a crucial time of closure for our students as they reflect on their experiences and what God has done in each of them during the trip. In Guatemala, we will leave Sumpango and spend our last days in Panajachel, which sits on the shoreline of beautiful Lake Atitlan. Additionally, debriefing is a great opportunity to do some of the souvenir shopping we didn’t have time for earlier in the summer!

We are excited to continue our partnership with Betty Merida and her local ministry, Breaking Cycles. Breaking Cycles has a long history of hosting student groups and Betty has a great heart for short-term missions. This will be our second summer working with Breaking Cycles, whose mission is to break cycles of abuse in the city by serving, educating, and sharing the Gospel with the people of Sumpango.
