Mission trips aren't just a part of what we do, but it's part of the fabric of who we are. It's our desire that everyone who calls Emmanuel home would go on a mission trip.

2020 MISSION TRIPS
- Focus: We will be ministering in a village in a remote area of Guatemala with our Kingdom Builder partners, the Monson family. Our team will be involved in building a new block home for the pastor and his family in that village, or we might help to build a new church. The exact project and location have not yet been determined. The women on the team are usually involved in a variety of ministry projects throughout the week for women, children and families. The team members working on the construction project will be laying block, working with cement, and helping the blocklayers - all levels of ability are welcome. We’ll be participating in door to door ministry (inviting women to a special event and praying for families). We’ll be doing a food give-out for families in the village and encouraging the Monson family!
