Traveling to Guatemala

Thinking about traveling to Guatemala to visit your Lutheran companions? These experiences are a way to immerse yourself in companionship and deepen your understanding of what it means to be a global church. Visiting your companions is not centered around the concept of doing work projects, but rather centered around building relationships and learning about one another.


The Companion Task Force is here to accompany you through your travel process. The first step in travel planning begins by completing the Initial Contact Form and reading through the Handbook for Leading a Trip to the ILAG.
