I don’t believe words can convey the feeling of my mission trip to Guatemala. Here are my top favorite images that hopefully “speak” volumes of our work there!
This is the family we built the home for. A single mother with 5 children whose husband went to the United States 7 years ago to help the family financially and never returned.
Here is some of our 13 member team that constructed the entire house in just 3 days.
Some worked on measuring and cutting wood, others hammering and some others entertained and played with the children.
Pamela Copeman, an interior designer and artist brought paper and watercolors that the kids thoroughly enjoyed.
We spent another day at a school bringing supplies and games along with feeding lunch to the children.

We ended our trip spending the last day at Lake Atitlan and Pana Jachel, a couple hours from Guatemala City.
This was a trip filled with several meaningful memories. It broke my attachment to emails, texts and phone calls and opened my eyes to the abundance we have in our country and what little other countries have. I witnessed the good of many people and it didn’t matter what anyone was wearing, what they owned or what they did for a living – we were all there to do good. I am thankful to Kelly Kole for including me on this journey and her courage to step out of her comfort zone and making me step out of mine.
