TEAM: World Outreach Youth Team

Twenty team members from World Outreach Church connected with a youth group and served alongside the ASELSI team.

The team of mainly youth from Tennessee, spent time getting to know the youth from a church in Chicua, a village outside of Chichicastenango. Led by local youth leaders, the team played ice breaker games and took time to hear about the lives of youth in Guatemala.

They also visited local families in their homes to learn about local culture, living and challenges these families face.

After participating in a church service in Chicua they divided in to groups of five for additional home visits and then attended workshops to get to know ASELSI and how this ministry is impacting the community here with Christ.

The team also worked hard at building a new drainage system and instilled pipes to help preserve the road that provides the only vehicle access to the ASELSI campus.

Students from Chicua joined the team for a midweek activity at ASELSI’s campus where they participated in an interactive time of games and then shared stories around bonfires.

Here at ASELSI, we are grateful for the youth of World Outreach Church who came and built relationships with the youth of Chichicastenango and put their hearts and hands into action to help us care for the people here and on the construction project they helped with.
