Review for Opal House, Des Moines, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My time at the Opal House was the most incredible, inspirational, and life changing experience I have ever had. I absolutely can not wait to go back, visit, and help out on their farm or with the school.

I didn't know it was possible for two people to do so much for a community like they do at the Opal House. From keeping a clean supply of water in case the town below dries out, providing a free education to young children, and providing jobs for the locals to work on their 75 acre avocado and coffee tree farm. Will and Diane have created a wonderful atmosphere and we should all strive to make an impact like they have, it would make the world a better place.

Our main goal coming down to Guatemala was a surgical mission team. We did 35 surgeries and screened over 60 patients. The overwhelming sense of accomplishment was incredible and spending time with the children that were preparing for surgery was a whole new experience in itself. The hospital staff was incredible and I have never seen a group of people work as hard as they do. I am blessed to have had this opportunity to stay at the Opal House and i can't wait to go back next year.

I encourage everyone to help this organization, as much as anyone can!
