September 29, 2016 – Team Update

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

Hola! from Itzapa, Guatemala

It’s amazing how appreciative and humble the people are here when their living conditions are something

A Show of Parental Support

Gabby and Charlotte was been volunteering with Loving Arms at the Centre of Hope, in particular at the Christian School of Hope since February 2016. The girls have been a tremendous help, especially in the English classes. Parents are always concerned about where their kids are going, what they are doing, who are they with, and where they are living. Charlotte’s parents decided to visit Guatemala and see for themselves what their daughter
