Give Hope

Virginia Team 2019

This past week we had the joy of having a team from Virginia here. It was led by Kim Page and it was a mother daughter team. We had a great time having them here and they were able to experience many things.

They taught a couple art classes to the art student and the students had a lot of fun learning new painting techniques. They were also able to build bunk beds and deliver them to two families. The team had a great time doing that because they loved seeing the smiling faces of the children who received their new beds. Along with that they visited and delivered food that they packaged to families who needed it. They had such a nice time visiting the families and being able to spend time with them.

They also helped out some of our students who had activities to help them prepare for after they graduate. The students made and served food and the English students translated for the team. Then the team was able to give them ideas on what they did well and things they could improve on.

On their last day here they hiked up to the prayer mountain. There, they heard a devotional, had a time of worship, and had a time of prayer. It was a beautiful time!

We are so grateful for the time they were able to be here and their willingness to serve Guatemala. We hope to see them again soon.
