Serving in Guatemala: A Photo Story
Some college students take the summer to relax, go on vacations or hang out with friends and family. However, some choose a different path. Here’s a visual story of student Damaris Wyand’s journey to serving others with an MBU mission team in the village of Los Chilitos, Guatemala.
The trip was life changing. Although the people live in poverty, they are so generous with the little that they do have. Seeing how they are able to live in such conditions and still have joy changed my perspective.
We worked with the children, playing games and teaching bible stories. We also went to a gathering for the youth of surrounding villages to present the gospel, share testimonies and worship songs.
“In no other place have I felt such peace and belonging. We were created for a purpose.”
On the last day, we went sightseeing in Antigua. The city was very beautiful, especially from the lookout point where this picture of me was taken.
