Guatemala September 2017- Waxhaw

Opportunity Overview

Welcome to the September 2017 Forest Hill Guatemala Trip page!

Our group from Forest Hill Church Waxhaw will be traveling to Guatemala City to serve with Lemonade International. This AIM partner is facilitating community development in Guatemala City by building deep relationships with the marginalized, identifying the inherent worth in each person, and finding sustainable ways for the community to take ownership in development efforts. Their programs include three academies, a business incubator that helps local businesses thrive, and community relief efforts that help to meet the urgent, unexpected needs of those who are most vulnerable in the community. Please join this trip or donate to help each of us go deeper in Christ as we follow His command to be His Church.

Trip Focus:

This team will specifically be serving Lemonade International’s academies, by working alongside the teachers, helping the students, and most importantly, taking the time to listen and learn from the people of the community. This trip will be forming with leadership from the Waxhaw campus and team meetings will be held in the Waxhaw area.

If you have any questions, please email GoGlobal Trip Coordinator, Alison Gamble at


All forms can be scanned and e-mailed to, given to your team leader, or mailed to:
