Cedarview and East Gate - July 2017 | Hungry For Life

July 2017: ,

Ottawa's dynamic duo Cedarview Alliance and East Gate Alliance joined youth group forces this past July. They worked with the Alliance Church in San Raymundo, Guatemala to run an after school drama and sports camp, and provided essentials such as vitamins and school supplies to the students. They also visited the students' families in their homes and learned what daily life is like for Guatemalans. 

Team Testimonials:

"My mindset has changed. One of the big reasons for going on this trip was that I knew my worldview would change. Voila!"
"I feel like I see ministry through a different lens/perspective now. I want to serve our church and local community more effectively ."
"This trip has really opened my eyes to see what is actually important in life and what isn't."
"My point of view on how to serve God has changed ever since we started doing home visits."
"I feel a much stronger sense of gratitude and love for those around me as we experienced so much of that from this community. My greatest impact simply came from observing the joy, love, kindness and hospitality of the Guatemalan people."
"In the next six months I am going to love, serve and trust in the Lord more."
"Going forward I am going to limit my exposure to the things that take my attention away from God."
