Experience 6 Weeks in Beautiful GUATEMALA

Travel expands our understanding of the world and its people and creates opportunity for significant life change.  Oh, and it's really fun too.  During our time in Guatemala we will live, learn, serve, explore and worship among, and with, the local people. Here is a glimpse at the plans we are working on:


While in Guatemala, KURIOS is partnering with Canadian Baptist Ministries (CBM) and will be hosted by CBM field staff Bruno and Kathleen Soucy and Patty Nacho. We will be living primarily at a Baptist Camp on beautiful lake Atitlan. Plans are underway for each participant to experience language and cultural immersion through a 1 week home stay with a Guatemalan family. We are also planning a week in the historic city of Antigua.


Being in Central America will challenge us to broaden our understanding of who the people of God are, and are to be, as we study and serve in a Latin American context. Travel teaches us a lot about ourselves, and broadens our worldview.


We will join local churches in the Lake Atitlan region, serving alongside them in their existing ministries. Here are just a few of the many serving opportunities we are exploring for KURIOS participants in Guatemala:


We will be privileged to worship alongside many different churches and ministries during the 6 weeks.  This will include Sunday services, youth group gatherings, community events and more.


Guatemala combines vast natural beauty and vibrant culture.  Participants will feel     like they've experienced the "real" Guatemala by the end of the 6 weeks.  Our local       hosts are planning guided day trips and overnight adventures including things like:

        Mayan Ruins, Hiking, City Life, Beach Trips and more...


I don't speak Spanish.  Is that ok?

Is Guatemala safe?

Does the time in Guatemala cost extra?

What do I need to have in order to travel?
