Transcript: Introduction The Steps I did not have an exact dollar amount of how much I wanted to raise, but I did not expect to raise as much as we did. We were able to raise $2,792! Besides raising money, I also had a goal to learn more about Guatemala and the mission field there. By doing research and talking with my Youth Pastor, I was able to learn a lot about Guatemala. 4. We spent MANY hours pricing all of the items 5. With the help of our family and friends we set up everything at the church in one day. 6. We were finally able to hold our sale! 7. We cleaned up everything and brought the extra items to Goodwill tOnehing that I learned from this project was that organizing and holding a rummage sale is not easy! There were many steps that we had to take to have the sale. 1. We had to ask for permission to hold our sale at United Presbyterian 2. We asked church members, family, and co-workers to donate items for us to sell 3. We advertised for the sale by hanging up flyers in local businesses. We also had an advertisement in the Telegram and on Craigslist. My Goals Rummage Sale for Guatemala Missions Trip Thank you for coming here to listen to my project. My name is Brooke Larsen. For my senior project, I chose to do a service learning project. My friend and I held a rummage sale to raise money for students from our church to go on a missions trip to Guatemala.

Leave the people you meet with a favorable impression of North Americans so as not to make things more difficult for those who follow. Be gracious. Lower your voice. Have patience. Be flexible. * Latinos are very warm and will try to make you feel at home. Be careful with this, though with unknown men on the streets. A “no hablo español” will help you to get out of uncomfortable situations. * Men are rude sometimes and they will yell “compliments” or whistle to you (women) on the streets.
