Seekers is an ecumenical church in Washington D.C. For the past nine years they have organized a pilgrimage to Guatemala to work on PAVA projects with Lumunous (formerly Faith at Work).
Trips usually have anywhere from 20 - 27 volunteers from all over the United States. Using Antigua as a home base pilgrims spend five days traveling each morning to a worksite that's been coordinated in advance with PAVA. The trek to the worksite is anywhere from one hour to two hours long and when they arrive they work side by side with villagers (often with many children helping) as construction crews, teaching and playing with the children and sharing their enthusiasm and their hope. Each evening pilgrims make time together to reflect on their experience and growing insights. The end of the trip is spent in Panajachel on Lake Atitlan where pilgrims may rest or visit nearby sights.
