Wayuu Territory, Colombia
Mission Trip To Colombia
July 27 - August 3, 2024
Our partner, Champion Forest Baptist Church, and ELM are planning the 2024 mission trip to The Wayuus, the largest ethnic group in Colombia. Family groups live in rancherias in remote areas far from services and health facilities and nearly impossible to reach.
The harsh environment and long-term drought drastically cut their water supply and food, increasing the spread of diseases, parasites, and malnutrition, killing the Wayuu children today.
Planning for the 2023 mission to Colombia is underway now.

Mission Trip Colombia Summary
At my age, often before I head off on a trip, I will spend time worrying about nagging personal day-to-day issues including my stamina, my back, my sleep habits, how my stomach will behave, etc. But after much prayer, family support and just giving the reigns to the Lord on every trip I have been on (12 to-date), the Lord has supported me, energized me, refreshed me, and blessed me.
Many times, on trips, I have been involved with helping to build something, and He gives me the strength and stamina needed to finish each day. Each evening, I say to myself, how did I do that? Then wake up refreshed and ready to go again. I know I have been blessed each day for I could not have done it without Him! With God, there is always a way.
