Firehouse will be journeying to Guatemala again this year during Spring Break. We will be partnering with a ministry called Hope of Life, or in Spanish “Esperanza De Vida”, to minister and bring the Good News of Jesus to the people of Guatemala.
During this trip, students will have the opportunity to serve in an orphanage, elderly home, local elementary schools, local churches and villages, as well as visit a few of the churches that previous teams from our church have served in planting in the jungle areas of the country.
Most of the places we will serve will speak primarily Spanish, but in the jungle villages, we will encounter mostly a Mayan language, called Kekchi.

Multiple BBQ lunch fundraisers are held after church at FBCMI on Sundays that students can help serve food and run the event to earn money for their trip. There are sign ups for this on our website usually posted 2 weeks before each BBQ. Check out our “Help A Student” link for the sign up form as it posts.
Rent a student is for students to be connected with church members at FBCMI who need help in their yards or around their homes and are willing to help students earn money for missions in exchange. Connect Pastor Rob at the church offices if you are interested in getting on this list. 321-453-2144 or at
Prayer / Support Letters are encouraged for each student. We ask them to write and mail letters to family and friends, letting them know about their trip and asking them to pray for them and if possible to financially support them as they raise money to go serve Jesus and the poor and hurting of Guatemala. Copies of sample prayer letters will be provided to team members at our first meeting.
For more information about this trip, please contact Pastor Rob at, or plan to attend our informational meeting held in the MICS Chapel on Thursday, August 17, from 5-6pm.
