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.

Hola! from Itzapa, Guatemala

Our journey has started here in the mountains, 10 East-coasters got off the plane and made our way to our home here at Loving Arms.

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