My husband and I went with 7 other members of our church to work with Mayan Families, installing stoves in families' homes and sponsoring children to go to school. It was the most amazing experience for us. We were never left on our own, always having, at least one, sometimes more, of the Mayan Families' members with us to help with their language, as we spoke very little Spanish, and helping us understand the culture there. This is a wonderful group, and it's doing wonderful things for the families in Guatemala. We've had so much support from friends and families at home - we're going to return next year!
