The last group that came down to Guatemala this summer is one that is dear to my heart. For the second year in a row, a group of gentlemen from Kentucky came to serve at Hope For Tomorrow, doing general repair work. What has always impressed me with this group is the incredible heart they have for children. They are hard workers with soft hearts and are committed to sharing God’s love with our children (and staff) at Hope.
This year the team did some much needed repair work on our roof, part of which was hand scrapping out of our gutters more than 500 pounds of volcanic ash/sand that fell a few weeks back. The team also built a sensory table for our children which they immediately fell in love with. This table, which you can see in the pictures below, is an excellent instrument in childhood development and is something we have been wanting to get for a while. These gentlemen rose to the occasion and did a fantastic job planning and putting this together. We even nicknamed it the Tindle Table after Neal, the team leader. Finally, they help purchase and install kitchen cabinets that were much needed.
I’ve included a few pictures from the trip below, so be sure to check them out.
