Hola mis amigos. We have had a wonderfully productive day here at Hope of Life in Zacapa, Guatemala. This morning after breakfast, we went to church in the village with the local families. We were able to come back to Hope of Life for lunch and then a tour of the 3000 acre compound. The tour gave the new team members an opportunity to learn a little about Hope of Life, see the various areas and meet the residents of the elderly home, Kelly’s House, the nutrition center, and the families at the Village of Transformation. After returning to the Rancho, the team sorted and repacked 31 bags of donations in preparation for tomorrow. The Hoyer lifts were assembled, and the Kelly’s House team was able to observe feed time with the residents.
People shared what moved them about today during out debriefing, and we heard about children wanting to be picked up and loved, an awesome sermon at church this morning, seeing the progress of children from last year, and socializing with the senior citizens that don’t get many visitors. We are ready to break into our teams tomorrow morning for a divide and conquer therapy mission! We’ll catch ya tomorrow evening!
