In case you missed it, the youth who visited Guatemala this June shared their experiences to a packed house on Sunday, September 17 at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Wilmington, Delaware.

Westminster Presbyterian Church has always had a vested interested in mission work in Guatemala. It was not until recently that Westminster established strategic partnerships with the Association of Mam Christian Women for Development (AMCWD) and The Protestant Center for Pastoral Studies in Central America (CEDEPCA) to create lasting change in communities for years to come.
