Welcome to Guatemala to Jackson, Lucas, Jacob, Rachel, and Alyson. They all make up a fabulous team full of the desire to serve.

Tuesday was a phenomenal day. One of the barriers to education for young women is having to deal with their menstrual cycle. Our volunteer Marg teamed up with the Charity Days for Girls and coordinated and funded the making of 115 menstrual kits. Loving Arms arranged two meetings of 50 women each. As a result, 100 women and girls would go out into the community with knowledge that will improve lives. Find out more about how Loving Arms wants to celebrate
