Review for Opal House, Snohomish, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We met Will and Diane several years ago and were interested in seeing what they were doing in Guatemala. My husband and I went down to visit and see firsthand what all they were doing in Guatemala. We were impressed by their love of the people and their desire to reach the local communities with tangible demonstrations of love. They are doing school for local children and feeding them lunch, while they are there for the 1/2 day. They weekly had rotating children groups spend the night and give them beds, showers and dinner and breakfast also. Jobs are few, but they are able to provide work for local men to build and plant and harvest at a higher than local wage. They also had an abandoned mother and 2 children living on the property helping her to learn skills that could provide income for her family. I went twice with Dr. Boegel to help at a local clinic where he offers his medical skills several times/week. We observed the genuine love the people have for this couple. We were challenged ourselves in how they are giving themselves away to love and serve the poor in Guatemala.
