This summer, 3 church members joined our long-term mission partners, Gary and Lily Stone, in Guatemala for a short-term mission trip! Taylor Deal, Yvette Crocker, and Caitlin Crocker served alongside them in both the city of Xela and the mountains of Ixchiguan. In Xela, they helped to move church supplies, host a medical clinic, and offer addiction support services. They also did a prayer drive around the city and set up a booth where they distributed Bibles, tracts, and free bread and lemonade. In Ixchiguan, they shared their testimonies at two churches and provided encouragement to church leaders in their efforts to reach locals.
We would like to thank Gary and Lily Stone for allowing us to partner with them in their kingdom-building work! Thanks also to Taylor Deal, Yvette Crocker, and Caitlin Crocker for following God’s call to Guatemala this summer, and thank you to all the members at Southside Church who prayed and gave financially to make this short-term mission possible!
