Thank You Connexus Team!

This week has been a very busy one but it has been fun with 29 sets of hands and hearts eager to collaborate. The Connexus team has given its best service to Guatemala and the most needy. We thank the leaders and youth members for their service and sharing their heart with others. Thanks to their help we were able to make many improvements in the Centre of Hope such as continued construction of the 3rd grade classroom, painting of walls, carpentry

On Saturday, March 10th we held our monthly food distribution. All of the families that are part of this program from Corrales, Parrojas, Paraxaj, Chitaburuy, and Parramos attended this month's distribution at our Centre of Hope.

While the children were

Blog Update – Sunday, September 17th

Today was a heavenly day. We began with a visit to Valhalla Macadamia Nut Farm. In Viking mythology, Valhalla is akin to paradise or a heavenly home. The farm lived up to its name being both beautiful and peaceful -- a wonderful place for the team to rejuvenate after our first 3 days of travel and work. It was also very educational. Who knew that the Macadamia Nut tree flowers and produces fruit at the same time; or that it converts twice as

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

Team Update – February 20, 2016

The week wrapped up with Mack, Brian, Stephen working along side Josue building the walls of the new classroom. Stephen gave the exterior a fresh coat of paint and Ron tidied up some of the electrical wiring and propane tank mounts. Much time was spent time researching local septic systems that need to be installed as a result of the additional classes. Much of this is new to the staff and workmen here but a local engineer verified the plan Brian
