Brandy's Trip to Guatemala

Hi all! I wanted to take a minute to say thank you to everyone who prayed for me and the rest of the mission team who served in Guatemala in March. It really means a lot to know that so many of you had us in your thoughts and prayers.

We had an absolutely amazing time! We all stayed and served at New Life Children's Home in Guatemala There are 52 children who live at the home and 400 who attend school there. We did a lot of various projects at the home and school including painting, planting, cleaning, sewing, and building desks. We also spent a lot of time with the children doing devotional activities, playing UNO, talking, and even painting each others finger nails. We even spent one day site-seeing in Antigua. I took a LOT of photos while I was there- Carrie has trained me well!

Thanks to all!

This is the Mission Team - what a wonderful group of people!!

All of the little girls fell in love with Amber - the feeling was mutual!

The school building and a typical classroom as well as two beautiful school children on the playground.

My oldest son Taylor and our friend Casey at the ruins.

Three of the beautiful older girls did a special dance for us - they really enjoyed watching themselves perform on the video camera!

My son Taylor and Sammy - the boy he is sponsoring.
