Blog Update – Monday, September 18th

Today we began taking medical clinics into the surrounding villages. It was quite an adventure. The morning clinic was to be held at a church which sits at the edge of a cliff in La Hermita. Unfortunately for a variety of reasons, and despite a back-up plan, we could not get a key to the church and so after an hour of waiting, the team ended up holding the clinic in the community leader’s house amidst chickens and hanging laundry. Fortunately,

World Race- Week 2

This past week, our World Race team  got to work at the "Big Blue House" or the Loving Arms main building. Some days we would hoe the yard and garden around the house and the property.

Barb’s First Team Sunday November 10, 2013

The rooster gave us an early wake-up call starting at 1 o'clock this morning. On today's agenda: 1. We packed all the food bags to give out to the different sponsored families later on today. 2. We also pre-packed different medications for our clinics. 3. Then we moved on to a macadamia nut farm. Loving Arms often brings teams out to the farm as sort of a field trip while in Guatemala. We were welcomed by the owners. We visited the farm and they

Barb’s First Team Day One

We have arrived!! Safe and sound. Mom would be proud. It hasn't been long since we have arrived but we have already lived a couple of culture shocks: 1. The toilette paper ends up in the garbage can instead of the toilette. We will have to get used to that. Septic systems are just not the same in Guatemala as in Canada. 2. The diesel aroma is all over the place, another smell to get use to. Often the old vehicles from more affluent countries come
