First, A Few Pics from the last few daysThe Family we visited in their home
Then we headed to the Compassion country office in GU city to tour and meet the folks that make Compassion happen in Guatemala. We got to see all the behind the scenes stuff that helps support the children and keep the communication up between the children and the sponsors. These folks churn out a lot of work with a small staff, but do a great job from what we saw.
That was followed by a presentation about the Leadership Development Program, which is a program for Compassion Children that have graduated and would like to go to college. We have spent most of the week with Magda, who is an LDP graduate and is now responsible for 12 projects in Guatemala. She had already impressed us with the program because of her amazing presence and leadership. We heard from 3 current LDP students and then got to have dinner with them and ask questions. We also met 2 other LDP graduates who serve on the Country Office Team.
Tomorrow, we get to take the kids that our group has sponsored to an amusement park in Guatemala City. Everybody is very excited about that. Should be fun.
