Today the children at the school started with singing the Guatemalan national anthem. The devotional dealt with fraternidad between brothers (and sisters) and friends. They sang a song which took me a moment to recognize as Barney the Dinosaur’s “I love you, you love me” song. After prayer they went to class.
I went to help Jose the English teacher again. After getting pictures with my sponsored children last week, I printed a copy of a picture of me with both of them. I gave them the pictures during class today. Antony ran to his backpack to put the picture away. Lincy hugged the picture tight, then ran to show it to her friends.
In the preschool class, my mom’s sponsored child, Carlos, warmed up to me and got over being shy. He sat on my lap during most of English class.
After lunch, I installed a cabinet for the defibrillator that was donated to the school. Then I wrapped some presents and did a few miscellaneous tasks before heading back to the hotel for dinner.
