This week I’m in Guatemala with the relief organization World Vision, witnessing and reporting on all the incredible work they are doing here. This is the first in a series of posts I’ll be sharing each day about my experiences.
On Monday, September 9, eight bloggers will join writer/photographer Laura Reinhardt and I for a week-long trip to visit World Vision's child sponsorship and community development work in Guatemala!
One of the programs we'll be visiting is the Children Artistic Development Center in San Juan, which incorporates music into its education program. Yolanda plays the double bass in the orchestra. Here is her story.
Last month, we asked our Facebook followers to tell us what kinds of gifts and packages they send to their sponsored children around the world. See the loving and creative ways that our child sponsors have found to ship joy across the globe -- and receive joy in return!
