Episode 02 - Working with a Short-Term Team
Zaak goes to the Guatemala City to pick up a team of 19 people from BC, Canada. The team leads a children's ministry in Purulah, a town that this ministry has had no previous contact with, but has been invited to work in. We follow the progress of the ministry, including a challenging final day. We end up in Antigua, the day before the team leaves, learning about the blend of Mayan beliefs and Catholicism.
