Now Is the Time - Missions To Guatemala
In addition to performing concerts, leading music, and keynoting at events full-time throughout the year, Shawn and his wife Damaris and spend about 3 months/year in Guatemala to prep and lead an annual mission trip held in June and July. The purpose of "Now Is the Time" missions is to share the love and hope of Jesus by serving orphans, and children living in extreme poverty in Guatemala.
Shawn and Damaris organize and host this mission of about 150 volunteers of all ages each summer. Because they feel blessed to be a blessing, and called to serve as volunteers, they raise financial support for themselves, and for the mission projects throughout the year.
