|With "our family" in Santa Maria de Jésus|
|volunteering at Cambiando Vidas|
Over the past 3 years, since our first of 6 trips, we have become intimately connected with the two families whose homes we helped build, volunteered at the schools, and became godparents to the son of one of the workers. (Notice Señora Gringa in the church!).
Our lives have been changed so much by our work in Guatemala. As much as everyone thanks us for our efforts, it is we who feel so grateful for and blessed by our experiences there. So I was more than happy to design From Houses to Home's holiday card this year! Here it is:
If you have a few moments, here's a video that Samy and I made for her school, which became the sister school to one of the schools in Guatemala! It will give you a sense of just how much we were transformed and eager to share our experience.
Samy and I also wrote a book so she could convey her experience to other kids her age. It's called "Old Enough to Do Good in the World," and would make a great holiday gift (hint hint)! 100% of the proceeds go straight to From Houses to Homes.
Thank you for visiting! I read and treasure every comment and will answer any questions as quickly as I can.
