When it comes to global compassion, one of the places Connexus is involved is in the country of Guatemala. Not only have we been a part of a number of projects in Guatemala, but also many people in our community have gone there to serve. Most recently a team of students from InsideOut (Grade 9-12) were a part of a Compassion Trip to Antigua, Guatemala.
Many of you may have seen the devastation in Guatemala as a result of a volcano eruption and a tropical storm in that country over past weeks. Mudslides in particular have destroyed parts of the country and taken lives. As we announced last week, as a community we wanted to react to the crisis in Guatemala, so we’ve decided to send $2500 to “Youth With A Mission” in Antigua to help with expenses and aid as a result of the crisis. Please continue to be in prayer for the people in the hardest struck areas of Guatemala as they continue rebuild.
