After spending the past few days working in the village, we had the pleasure of spending a fun day with 160 kids from another village, Pacaya and as a bonus we Sponsor one of the boys & got to spend the day with him!
Most of these kids have never been out of their tiny village at the base of the active volcano, Pacaya, let alone, seen the sites of this upscale mall with a play place called Divercity.
Divercity is a childrens’ themed faux city, that provides hands on fun for the kids, exposing them to many occupations, in a fun atmosphere.
Including, veterinarian, TV reporter, farmer, radio DJ, fireman, plumber, detective, model, and much, much more!
We have been sponsoring Jonathan for about 6 months at this point. This would be our second time visiting him in Guatemala. He came running to greet us with smiles & hugs!
It is so exciting watching the children’s reactions to seeing all this for the 1st time. I can only imagine what must be running through their minds. Cinder block homes, many with dirt floors, and outdoor bathrooms, are the norm for these kids.
It was now the weekend so we decided to take a day off before getting back to work! So off to Antigua & an unplanned parade for the month long celebration of Guatemala’s independence!
