LWML/MOST SEPTEMBER MISSION TRIP TO GUATEMALA
LWML Michigan women are invited to join a MOST Ministries Eyeglass Team #1926 to Quetzaltenango, Guatemala, September 13 – 21, 2019. This mission would be amplification of one of the 2018-2020 Biennium District goals: “Participation in Mission Opportunities.” The eyeglass mission is planning for participation of six to eight LWML Michigan women.
If a prospective team member would like to bring on the mission a child, grandchild, niece, or nephew between ninth grade through Senior in college, they would be eligible to apply for a Family Friendly Scholarship funded through National LWML Mission Grant #21, 2017-2019 Biennium. This scholarship is available from MOST Ministries; requirements must be completed 45 days before the team departure date. A copy of the scholarship guidelines may be obtained from Sarah DePriest, associate director of MOST by emailing [email protected] or from Team 1926 Liaison Mary Craaybeek, Vice President of Mission Outreach, at [email protected]
Quetzaltenango is in a cooler, higher elevation in the Western part of Guatemala. Participant cost is expected to be between $2,300 to $2,600.00 A possible availability of unused mission trip funds could subsidize participation. More details about this eyeglass mission may be found on the team schedule tab at www.mostministries.org Beginning date of the mission could become Sept. 14, if flight schedules dictate a change.
So get your passport in hand, gather all the eyeglasses you can find, and be ready to learn vision testing of a population of God’s people who need your Christian witness and care in Central America!
