Final Outreach Day!

Medical Mission - Guatemala June 2023|

From Jacob: Hello everyone on the World Wide Web!  Today was Day 5 of outreach and we had the opportunity to deliver a brand-new mattress and box spring to Sabino’s house because we noticed his bed needed to be replaced when we finished his roof on Saturday.  Sabino loved his bed so much he didn’t want to get back up again after laying on it!  We finished the day with a few more deliveries

Outreach Day 4

From Shawnda: Day 4 is in the books.  This week has been amazing!  I love getting to know the new team members and seeing the families that we have worked with for the last several years.  Every trip brings new challenges and new rewards.  Today we worked a little shorthanded due to illness.  It was awesome to see this team come together to make it work and care for these people. They still felt

Day 4 – Exploring Antigua

From Andre: As is the norm it has been a busy trip.  Travel all day on Wednesday, long clinic days (leave around 7:15 am and get home around 8 pm) Thursday – Saturday.  So, I was looking forward to a restful Sabbath on Sunday.  That was until multiple members of the team got sick with a GI illness – I will let you fill in the details.  One of the team members who was

From Claire: Day three working in Guatemala was definitely one I will never forget! As we continued to work and improve Sabino’s house, we cleared out almost all of the spider nests. It was pretty terrifying as they tried to escape our stomping feet. But working on Sabino’s house made me think about how great and plush our lives are in the U.S. Over and over again, he would tell us how grateful he

Tonight, it's Mother-Daughter night on the blog! Anna is our optometrist and served in the medical outreach today and Clara, her daughter, spent the morning repairing the roof of a man who has been coming to the outreach for years! From Clara: The second day of working in Guatemala was a very memorable one!

Medical Outreach Day One!

From Jordyn: Today was an exciting day! It was the first day we got to actually work and open the outreach center. I worked triage and got to meet many people from around the area. The language barrier was hard, but throughout the day it became easier to pick up on certain words and phrases. Everyone was so nice and grateful, and it felt great to know I was making a difference. My favorite

Juntos por siempre: “Together Forever.”

Mindy: As I woke up this morning and was reflecting on the past week, my heart is full of gratitude and the sweet and gentle love of Jesus.  What a blessing it has been to spend the week touching the hearts of the people of Guatemala and also getting to know new friends from our own SMCC community.  I am filled with so many feelings and emotions from the week.  There is both joy

My strength comes from God

Today we began a new project in the mountains of Patizcia.   As we traveled to our destination, the landscape began to open. Often when traveling through the city streets, your view is obscured by the walls and gates of the city. As we drove further the hills and countryside revealed themselves. The beauty of Guatemala unfolded as we traveled deeper into farming country. In Guatemala they farm every available space, including very steep hillsides. As
