Being physically, emotionally and spiritually stretched is common when going on a summer mission trip. Sterling College's team to Guatemala looks to be no different. On June 2, a team from Sterling College will be going to Chiquimula, Guatemala for two weeks.
While in Guatemala, the team will be speaking to large school assemblies, helping with Sunday morning services and taking relief food to mountain villages where poverty and hunger prevail.
