The Sights

by carrollministry

If you think American’s litter is destroying the earth’s atmosphere, you need to come to Guatemala. One of the greatest shocks so far for me is seeing a river surrounded by garbage and people bathing in it.

The people here in Santo Tomas are very friendly and very beautiful.  The colors are astonishing.  The native dress is very bright and colorful.  Some of us wandered to the town’s cemetery today, which was also a very colorful atmosphere. The children are very curious, however, very shy. One child cried today when one of us tried to approach him.

I’m very excited to continue on our journey and grow in understanding of a culture very different from our own.

    Always a strange feeling to see that it isn’t just our culture that is stuck in a cycle of hurting our environment and I appreciate that it is noticed by you and the group!

    Hope the trip is going amazing and keep up the good posts!

    Many prayers coming your way from the Chancery.
