Finding Joy in Guatemala

Senior Zachary Bindus and junior Marissa Smith weren’t sure they wanted to go on one of Global Outreach’s spring break mission trips. But through a series of events, God made it clear to both of them that they were supposed to be in Guatemala. Here is a glimpse into their experiences during their week abroad.

Senior student Zach Bindus (middle, orange shirt) was one of those members. Though he initially had no intentions of going on a mission trip over spring break, he said God opened the doors and made it clear to him that he was supposed to go to Guatemala. "I signed up on the last day to apply, and I was going through the list and just picked Guatemala. I thought, 'Oh, that looks nice.'"
