Day 9 and 10 - We are in San Lucas Toliman

This town is located on lake Atitlan which is considered the most wonderful lake in the world. There are 7 vulcanos around it. We are visiting a catholic mission church where Fr. Gregory from MN has lived and served since 1963. They have started incredible projects for the community: reforestation, a small hospital, a women center, a water project to eventually provide clean water to the town, a garden, a coffee plantation, honey production. Wow! it is an amazing place. All these projects are managed by Guatemalans. The objective of the mission is to enpower and teach to the locals how tro sustain themselves.
We washed dishes... we pulled weeds...
