Mission Trips

I have so many requests for information about how to go on a mission trip.I love that so many of you want to get involved. I will give some info on the trips I am participating in. Here is the website for the organization I am traveling with to Ethiopia. They go every year and would LOVE to have you come next year! The trip is $2,200 total this year. It has been very well organized and I have no doubt that this trip will be amazing.

As far as going to Guatemala- here is the blog of the place I went

If you go to there website you can contact them and ask what teams are going there soon. When we went that is what we did. We just tagged along with another team. It was great.

I loved it there so much. I am planning on organizing a trip there in March, April or May of 2009. The trip will be about 10 days. We will go there to LOVE on babies, do photo updates for waiting mommas and whatever needs to be done. The cost for the trip last time was around $1000-1200. So hopefully we can get it to around that mark. If you know you are interested please let me know.

To read all about my trip to Guatemala look on the right hand side of my blog and scroll down to Mission Trips under my archives. Check out photos of the trip here

Here is a video about our experience. I hope you will join us.

Hugs, Angel

Girl, you have posted so much lately I can barely keep up! I have a lot of catching up to do. I am definitely wanting to try and go on your next trip Spring '09 to Guatemala. Please keep me posted. LOVE the new pics of Kaiya. She is a big girl. I would never have imagined from the pic of her in her crib that she was that tall. WOW! I can't wait to hear you received your invitation to travel. Is there anything I can give ie. donations or ?? for your trip to Ethiopia?

You know I am interested in BOTH! Just gotta wait to see what time of the year they fall on. Exams don't end until the end of April for me, but if the timing works out, hopefully I am in!

I have emailed you before to find out how much these mission trips cost. This one for Africa is too much for me to consider. BUt, I might be able to save up $1000 for when you plan another trip to Guatemala in March/April/May 2009. Please send me more information and as you get more details, keep in contact with me. I would REALLY hope that I could make that happen as that's been my dream to visit/help out at an orphanage like that. Thank you so much. My email is

Keep me posted on the trip you organize. With a realtor as a hubby(and the market sucking) and me a stay at home mom, finances are jacked right now. So by the time you want to go I know things will be better.

Hi Angel,
I just realized that I thanked you for posting your info about your mission trips but never expressed interest!
I'd love to be put on your list for updates.
Many thanks,
