Helping to serve lunch
We went to visit a feeding center today, located 3 miles past the clinic, but due to the dirt road conditions it takes an additional 20 minutes to get there. This center was also built by an american couple with the support of their church in Washington state. About 250 children are fed for lunch every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
In the afternoon we visited an orphanage we regularly suport that hosts about 55 children. It was heart breaking to think about these children and their future. They are in good hands and well treated, but what will their future be now that adoptions in Guatemala are closed? There are 200 recognized orphanages in Guatemala.
Life is tough here. Poverty, poor government control, broken down roads, disorganization, dirt, etc. are continous reminders that life is not easy for those that live here.
sorry we did not write much today, but we are really tired tonight. Please keep praying for us.
WE WILL NOW TRAVEL TO SAN LUCAS TOLIMAN TOMORROW AND WILL BE BACK HERE MONDAY. I AM NOT SURE IF WE WILL HAVE INTERNET ACCESS THERE.
