Every year before the team goes they start posting and they don't stop until their debriefing meeting is over. Check it out here.


Each short-term trip is unique and the Guatemala trip involves wheelchairs, stoves, hammers and lots of hiking. Learn more.

Support Guatemala missions by purchasing Gaut's Up coffee.

Want to learn more, or buy some? It's roasted by the Fulton family.

About Guatemala missions

Rick Fulton, the founder of Mission Mobility, leads short-term trips to Guatemala, partnering with Grace Community Church. During these trips, teams work alongside Bethel Ministries to distribute the wheelchairs and walkers that they’ve been collecting all year long.

Teams also build metal homes for families. These homes typically include a fuel-efficient wood stove, triple bunk beds and pouring a concrete floor. The team also collected ( they do a lot of work while they’re still state-side ) food, clothes and blankets to distribute and they carry it with them throughout the week as they distribute it in multiple locations.
