Blog Update – October 02, 2018

Today, Tuesday, we did 2 clinics. The first, La Hermita was a small village that had been displaced in a land slide several years ago. There are approximately 110 residents in this village. It is located in a lovely setting at the edge of a cliff. We set up in their church that had a beautifully decorated pulpit to welcome us. This is a very impoverished village without running water, that only receives shipments of water every three days. We assessed

Today was International Children’s Day.  This day is celebrated in Guatemala. The city of Parramos, where our clinic was had a huge celebration.  The clinic today was in a church. The health issues that were commonly seen were parasites, diabetes, cold and coughs. The team saw a total of 307 patients. We had a great lunch at the Centre of Hope. The children who were in school loved seeing us to practice their English. It was very nice to see

Early this morning we toured around the town of Antigua taking in some of the local culture. We then left the Hotel for the day. Our first stop of the day was at Valhalla, a macadamia farm, where we were given a tour of the farm by Tony, a very friendly and funny local. After the tour we got to sample some of the delicious products grown, manufactured, and sold at the farm. After the tour and the samples we sat and chatted as a group and enjoyed

The final day of my trip was also Dia de Los Madres (mother’s day) and the birthday of Antony, one of my sponsored children. We all sang happy birthday to Antony before going to class. I expected it to be a routine day, but they had a surprise for me.  The teachers all thanked me for coming and what my visit has meant to the children.  The children had songs and dances prepared for me.  Afterwards, we took a picture together and I received hugs

Today the children had oral exams in English class.  It fills my heart with pride to listen to my sponsored children speak English as well as Spanish. Lunch was chicken soup with the children, a meal that my friends helped pay for.  The soup was delicious, and I loved watching the children all eat together upstairs from their class rooms. After a little time trying to help translate some writing to English  My mom and stepdad purchased their sponsored

Team Update – May 1st, 2018

After devotional today, I continued the morning routine helping in the English classes until lunch time.  After lunch I worked on copying some papers for the classes with the new scanner/copier/printer.  Then we headed over to Enma’s home to see the chicken co-op.   After some chit-chatting and pictures (and a few chickens thinking they would like to take my shoestrings away from me), I helped the girls build a gingerbread chicken co-op (an
