Guatemala Pilgrimage

Originally planned for March, we have rescheduled our pilgrimage to take advantage of better weather and accommodate more of our pilgrims’ schedules.

Stillpoint and Brian Neely, Director of Youth and Family Ministries at St. Andrew Lutheran Church, are partnering once again with Porch de Salomon to offer this one-week service opportunity in beautiful Panajachel, Guatemala.

Porch de Salomon is among Central America’s most progressive mission organizations.  They seek to bring help and support to the indigenous people, Latinos, expatriates, and tourists of Guatemala.  They serve the local community in many ways with their primary work being to build cinder block homes for displaced, indigenous Mayan families.  They also serve several dental and medical clinics in villages surrounding Panajachel.  

Our work will vary, however, no previous experience or skills are required!

Stillpoint is grateful for Brian Neely’s service as this year’s Pilgrimage Coordinator (and in 2015 too while he was Director of Stillpoint).  Brian comes with a wealth of experience in Guatemala having lived and worked there when serving as the Principal of Panajachel Colegio Internacional, as well as travelling to the country numerous times with his family and with various service groups.

A Message from Porch de Salomon

Porch de Salomon has hosted short-term mission teams in Guatemala since 2006; in recent years over 20 each year! Porch seeks to provide a “safe space” where you can be yourself, celebrated as an individual, whether ministering or being being ministered to, and know you are part of God’s creation, with a special purpose in life.  While we are open to divine answers, we also look to dwell in the Mystery of the Way.  We invite you to this place with no preconceived notions of who you should be.

If you are a looking for an experience that will challenge you, stretch your faith, and welcome you into something bigger than yourself, then come be a part of what God is doing through Porch de Salomon.
