Farewell Guatemala!

This will be my last post as we are leaving at 11:00 for the airport.  Nicki will send a text this morning with our flight information.  The volunteers are busy packing up their things as we prepare to return home.  It is a bittersweet time and the students are very emotional......they are so excited to share what they have seen with all of you but still realize that there is so much that still needs to be done in this beautiful country.  From the bottom of my heart, thank you all for your continued support.

Below is a photo from last night.....our send off dinner.

Hola for Guatemala!

We are all happy, healthy, and full of gratitude for all we have back at home.  We have seen things that will change our lives forever.

Our Last Day in Pueblo Modelo

Such a bittersweet day......we can't wait to share all of our stories once we get home.

Ash Wednesday

 Below is a photo of the church that the people of Pueblo Modelo have constructed in order to give thanks.  Students had the option of attending an Ash Wednesday service.  It was simply beautiful.

Caroline asked to do the first reading in Spanish
