Laconia Christian Academy – “Shaving Our Way to Guatemala”

February 20 - March 20

The juniors and seniors of Laconia Christian Academy are traveling to Guatemala this spring, April 20th – May 1st, for their annual Service/Learning Missions Trip.

The headmaster of LCA, Rick Duba, has promised the students that if they raise $10, 000 he will shave his entire head. If the $10, 000 goal is reached the event will be live-streamed via Facebook and Instagram during their Winter Carnival on March 20th. Those who give $50 or more will be entered into a raffle with the opportunity to personally shave a strip of his hair. Those who give $100 or more will be given a free “Bald Duba” t-shirt once his head is shaven. Those who give $500 or more are guaranteed to shave a portion of his head at the Winter Carnival and receive a t-shirt.

During the mission trip the students have the privilege of working with John and Donna Reynolds at Cross Commission, a ministry in San Cristobal, Verapaz, Guatemala (http://crosscommission.org/cc/). Their objective is to build relationships with the young people of San Cristobal currently at Cross Commission’s youth center and to provide and install vented cooking stoves and fresh water systems in a small village in the mountains around San Cristobal.

The total cost of the trip is about $1900 per student. This includes airfare, transportation, and lodging and meals while in Guatemala. It also includes a budget of $6,000 for vented cook stoves and fresh water systems.
