We spent the fifth day in Guatemala high in the mountains in the village of Parrojas. We treated women and children at the local public school. Once again we see that children are children no matter where they live. They played, ran, teased each other and grinned at us shyly. The women work hard, cooking and cleaning, carrying heavy packages on their backs and heads – no wonder they appreciate the support we offer!
After lunch we brought craft supplies up the hills to play with the kids during their food distribution visit. Once again the kids proved to be fun-loving and creative – kids will be kids. Witnessing the food delivery was humbling, realizing just how much the stoves, water filters, cows and sponsorships have helped. Alicia, the program director, is gifted and has a deep rapport with the people she serves. Finally, a prayer of blessing was offered and we left inspired.
I’m very happy to be able to share this experience with my daughter. Sincerely, Susan McNair
