Why Do They Come?

An astonishing number of persons are arriving at the southern border of our country every day. Many of them come from Guatemala. It is hard to imagine what motivates them to take this arduous and dangerous journey. We can understand the concept of poverty, the lack of opportunity and the fear of violence as motivators. In the abstract they are ideas which make sense. But their reality becomes real and more understandable when we actually see the living situations and meet the people. Our service trips offer such an opportunity. Once you have witnessed the reality of the highlands of Guatemala the answer to the question will take on deeper meaning and understanding. Why do they come? Join us on a service trip and find out for yourself.
