We had a wonderful visit to Escuela Kimna'oj, the school that From Houses to Homes built with donations and love. Here's what it looked like in February when it was still under construction:
Now it is filled with children learning, playing, and having two hot meals each day:
|Samy helping with "concentration."|
And was particularly happy to see her "sister," Ingrid.
The children love playing in their interior recess courtyard with its beautiful mural donated and painted by a Guatemalan artist. It celebrates the traditional life lived in this Mayan community.
From the roof, there is a panoramic view of the village...
And a glimpse into other people's lives...
Which is a poignant reminder to be grateful for our many faucets and the water that comes out of them so readily -- and hot to boot!
I hope you enjoy this glimpse into our trip to Guatemala. (To read my prior post about this trip, please click here. To read all my posts about our work in Guatemala, click here.) Tomorrow we visit our three families, and I hope to have more to share.
Thank you for visiting! I hope you will leave me a comment to let me know you were here. I read and treasure every comment and will answer any questions as quickly as I can.
