“Bean” there….Never Seen That!

Quiacquix, Department of Totonicapan……

elevation…..9000 ft

a very laid-back, pretty Guatemalan highland village with very few other tourists in sight!

A team of 6 from Canada packed 90+ grocery bags of beans, rice, corn, sugar and oil.

Did you know that Guatemalans use 10 lbs of sugar in 10 days????

They are such a ‘sweet’ people!

Then we packed hygiene kits for the single moms and widows (80 of them)….

The kits included soap, shampoo, toothpaste and toothbrushes nicely wrapped in a bath towel.

..packing the hygiene kits….

Ruth, Evan, Lorraine, Ken and Mackenzie

 

…Ken stirring Gleaners soup that we took with us….

…Ruth, our energizer bunny busy filling bags…

…you have how many more beans to pack???”

..Juan is emptying the van to take the groceries to the church….

…serving soup to the women and their children….

…we brought lots of jackets and sweaters for the moms to take home…

…blankets donated by the Yarrow Ladies Group….

..It was great to have our pastor, Jose Sanchez(on the right), join us on this trip…..

….”I ate all my soup!”

 

 

 

…handing out hygiene kits….

…”I wonder what these Canadians are giving us???”

…someone with many years of experience….

 

…we presented Love Guatemala t-shirts to Juan, Pastor Obisque, and

Miguel, who runs the radio station.

The wives received blankets…..David, the young man next to Judy was teased

because he did not have a wife…he said “in 10 years!”

..a great end to a great day….

“I believe He wants us to love others so much that we go to extremes to help them.”
