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. We even helped the amazing Angel repair a fence that had broken down.

We cleaned the classrooms, sorted though papers,

Tuesday June 16, 2015 – Day 3

Today started off with cereal and milk (delivered fresh to the door) and then headed off to the Hope Center. There we saw 200+ people. There were many many people that pulled on our heart strings, and we all needed a few minutes to collect ourselves. Our afternoon consisted of teaching nursing students respiratory assessments, mom and babe clinic, dehydration an CPR. They were so intuitive and full of questions.

For our activities

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
