Good question! Yes, we provide at least one to two translators on every mission awareness trip, including those to Guatemala. We’ll provide more translators as needed, depending on the number of people traveling.

For more information, you can always email trips@cfcausa.org or call 800.875.6564 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., CST.

If we went on a trip, would someone translate for us in meeting the child?

Thank you

I watched it as I began preparing mentally for my July 2011 trip to Guatemala with my teenager, and it helped me get some sense of what to expect!

I’m only 13, but I might be going on an awareness trip to Guatemala this summer. My family sponsors a boy there that is only a little bit younger than me. Thank you for all of the information you provided in this video! It has inspired me to commit myself to taking that trip!

Thanks for this video. It would be great to see more like this one especially for those of us who haven’t made a visit yet. We have been thinking and praying a lot about our sponsored friend, Veronica, who will turn 15 this spring and your brief report helps.

it is a small way that i can feel closer to my sponsored friend Miguel who i sponsor through the Hermano Pedro IXT subproject
At this time i am concerned that the boy i have sponsored for 5 years is experiencing some difficulties as i did not recieve Christmas greetings from him as i have in all other years.
I am happy to watch this video, it fills my heart with hope.

It was wonderful! EVERY SPONSOR should try to go on a Mission Awareness Trip. If it is God’s will he will provide a way. Walking with the poor is truely amazing and spiritually fullfilling. It is also the best travel experience I have ever had. CFCA has everything planned and takes very good care of all participants.
Chris, you have much wisdom for such a young guy :o)

Those are really important thoughts to ponder. I was just in Guatemala and saw a CFCA building as we were traveling from Santiago de Atitlan around the lake on the way to Antigua. I’m looking forward to hearing more notes from the field in Guatemala. Muchas gracias!
