Preparing to Leave
Our trip to Guatemala happens in just a little more than a week. Students have worked hard to raise funds and learn about the culture, faith, and politics of Guatemala and the Mayan people. As the time gets closer the students are excited but also nervous about what they will see and experience. Everything from spiders and clean drinking water to safety have been topics of concern.
Before we go I would like to say thank you to all who have been so generous in donating to our trip. In addition to generous financial donations, we will be taking with us medical supplies (donated by the Carroll nursing department) and T shirts and sweatshirts (donated by Total Screen Design in Polson). We also plan to take some soccer balls and basketballs for use at the school and the mission.
In the days leading up to the trip I have asked past participants to write reflections on their experience of visiting the Mission and providing wisdom of what to be attentive to and reassuring of safety. I will update the blog as I receive these reflections.
Thank you again for following us. We welcome your prayers as we prepare for this journey!
