Volunteer FAQs 

We are so grateful for your interest in serving our patients in the year ahead. As we prepare to resume mission teams, we are making every effort to keep volunteers, patients, and staff safe and healthy, and to ensure that the teams run smoothly.  


Serving on a Faith In Practice team in 2021 will be different. There will be new guidelines and protocols in nearly every area of the mission experience, from entry requirements, to patient numbers, to hotels and transportation. 


New guidelines have been put in place to meet requirements from the Ministry of Health and our partner hospitals, and to prioritize health and safety. Should you decide to serve, we ask for your cooperation and understanding, as well as your flexibility. This is an evolving environment and protocols may change before or during your mission.  


Many things have changed, but one thing that remains constant is our commitment to serve the poor of Guatemala, and to do so with respect and empathy for our patients and each other. 


Thank you for your willingness to consider serving. May God bless you.
