City: San Pedro La Laguna
Have you ever had an experience that you knew was going to change your life?
That’s what happened in 2001 when Chris first went to Guatemala as part of a Short Term Missions team. She came home changed and wondering how this deeply impactful experience would affect her relationship with Jesus, her decisions, and her future. After several more years in Canada, she returned to Guatemala in 2005 to teach ESL. Subsequent shorter teaching contracts only served to solidify her love for the Guatemalan people, their country, and their ways. Now with Social Work and fundraising added to her resume, Chris is back in Guatemala teaching ESL to students 10-18 years of age, in the village of San Pedro La Laguna, about 4 hours west of Guatemala City. She is also supporting a women’s group at her church and is developing a community based ESL teaching program for those who aren’t able to attend private school.
Above all else, Chris would deeply value your prayer support to face the joys and challenges of serving in Guatemala.
