The Machry Family: Day 1

 

We arrived today in Guatemala and met our lovely host, Alicia and her family members who introduced us to our home away from home for the stay.

 

 

From Isaac, not having been to Guatemala previously, he was very surprised by the existing poverty, even compared to Trinidad, where he spent March break with a youth mission group.

 

 

Alicia and Sergio took us on a brief tour of the property where Loving Arms is building greenhouses and met the new puppy-soon-to-be guard dog and family pet.  We were impressed by the quality of craftsmanship put into the greenhouses, and the knowledge and attention to detail for the process of preparation and planting.  We were treated to a delicious dinner prepared by Carmin, and before bedtime, spent some time sorting through the items we had brought for donation and activities.
