As you know, the Presbytery of Baltimore has had a Guatemala partnership with an organization called CEDEPCA for the past five years.
We are excited that in 2020 we will be signing a new partnership agreement which will continue our relationship. A team from our Presbytery traveled to Guatemala City in October 2019 to have a business meeting with the staff at CEDEPCA to discuss and evaluate our partnership and to make plans for the future. Everyone at the meeting was in agreement that the partnership was valued and working well, and there was a mutual wish for the relationship to continue.
Our plan is that representatives from CEDEPCA will travel to the US this year to sign another five year partnership agreement at our Presbytery meeting. We also will have a delegation from our Presbytery traveling to Guatemala later this year for our annual trip.
Our partnership team at the Presbytery has representatives from five different churches. We would love to have more people become involved. If you are interested in having someone from our team visit your church and give a presentation about our partnership, please contact Susan Krehbiel, Presbytery staff, firstname.lastname@example.org or the Rev. Andy Gathman, chair, email@example.com
Details about our 2020 mission trip to Guatemala will be announced soon. We hope you will join us!
