It is hard to sit on my comfy couch, scroll though pictures of Guatemala and try to put into words our trip.
While all of us on the trip arrived home to electricity, running water, the ability to brush our teeth with water from the sink and run to McDonald’s or Starbucks for a yummy drink, that is not true of the people in these pictures. Most of them live in small homes or shacks, many with a tin roof. Instead of two siblings sharing a bedroom, if you walk into their homes you will find 6, 7, 8 people to a bedroom, and not all of them have beds. Their sink is usually outdoors, the river for washing clothes down the hill or across the village.
Enjoy the photos, imagine living the way these families do…and consider changing a child’s life through sponsoring one or two. It’s amazing what just a few dollars in the US can do for a family in Central America or other places around the world when put into the right hands.
Rich and poor have this in common: The LORD is the Maker of them all.
