Weekly Summary – Week of November 15, 2015

It has been a really wonderful week here in Guatemala! Every day has been full of new, different experiences. At the beginning of the week, I began going with Alejandra, the Child Sponsorship Director, to interview children for Preschool 2017. All of these children are three years old, and the hope is that we will be able to find sponsors for them soon so that they can begin receiving monthly food packages until they start school. These 20 children

November 5th, 2015 – Team Kelsey – Day 2

I started today with a new role: bus driver assistant/director of the craziest carpool ever.  Like yesterday morning, I rode into Parramos with Carlos at 7:30 to pick the children up for school.  Unlike yesterday morning, I was the one in charge of calling out the children’s names to board the bus.  I already know most of the children by name, so I wasn’t worried about that part of the process, but I was a bit apprehensive for a couple of

February 16, 2015 – Day 8

The team started the day by continuing to build the concrete wall that surrounds the Loving Arms' Centre of Hope. This wall adds a measure of security for when the Centre becomes a school for the children and was only made possible through generous donations. There are still portions of the Centre perimeter that needs this concrete wall so further donations are always graciously accepted.   This afternoon was special because it was the first

March 12, 2014 – Day 3

Hola Readers!!! Day 3 in Guats has been superb. The weather was scorching hot which is nice compared to your -15 degree temperature. We started the morning with a nice scrambled egg breaky that Carmen cooked for us (her food is incredible). Then we headed to Chitaburuy, which is the smallest school we will visit. It had around 20 kids aged 2-8. We did our VBS which included Spanish songs, a skit, games and bracelet making for crafts. Afterwards,
