One side of the coin – deprivation. In so many ways the people of rural Guatemala are deprived due to their circumstances. Safe housing, clean water, nutritious food, health care and many other physical needs are lacking.
But on the flip side of the coin is their abundance. Guatemalan life is a wealth of love, kindness, perseverance, friendship, family, sense of community and devotion. We came to share our material blessings. And in return we were blessed by their abundance!
