2019 UMVIM Medical Trip to Mazatenango


This mission has been going on for over 15 years, first under the sponsorship of San Ramon Valley UMC, and now, under Walnut Creek UMC.  We work in partnership with Fundación Herencia Viva (Living Heritage Foundation) based in Guatemala.   We provide the only medical care to the villages of Los Cerritos, Covodonga and Xiquina. from  our base in Mazatenango., about 3 hours from Guatemala City.

A working knowledge of Spanish is welcome, but not required (we have translators).

At the end of our mission we travel to Antigua for three days of rest and relaxation.  There is an opportunity to leave the mission one to two days early, but the departure date is fixed due to customs restrictions.  

The specifics are:

  • July 12 - 22, 2019 (with option for early departure by 1 or 2 days).
  • Cost: $1800 (covers insurance, airfare, lodging and all meals through Friday, 7/19).  
  • Current medical license
  • Must complete Safe Gatherings training and sign pledge of faith
