Casas por Cristo is more than a humanitarian organization. While building homes is what we do, our core mission is to reach the people of México, Guatemala and the Dominican with the love of Jesus Christ. Our ministry is about bringing hope to families in need. It’s about a God that loves His children so much that He sends strangers to build them a home with no strings attached. It is our prayer that each individual we serve will know the saving grace, peace, and joy that comes only through a relationship with Jesus Christ.
In just one week, teams transform an otherwise empty lot into a safe and secure home – complete with cement foundation, electricity, windows and doors. As a result of this experience, each family receives a tangible symbol of the faithfulness and unconditional love of Jesus Christ. As volunteers gain perspective on the extreme poverty that exists in our world, so do these families better understand God’s plan for their lives and His deep desire to take care of their needs.
What can I expect?
You will arrive early on Sunday evening into Guatemala City and then take a one hour ride up to the mountainous city of San Raimundo where you will stay in one of the downtown buildings. This area is right in the heart of San Raimundo and traveling during the week of Easter allows you to experience the Easter Celebration in a very new and beautiful way. Typically the house build will start on Monday or Tuesday and take 3-4 days. Your group of 20-30 will share in aspects of the build as well as assist in VBS with the local children. Evenings are spent back in the city with nightly devotions, walks through the local area, and preparing the group for the next day’s task.
To participate on this mission, you just need to “GO”. You and your team members, the CpC leaders, and the family you build for all come together to experience a life changing story about love, hope & Jesus for the people in Guatemala.
