While they're there they will be building houses for a couple of families. Their houses are 2 room houses- very simple. They are about the size of a large living room. Whole families live in these very simple rooms and they're thrilled with it!
I think this is going to be such an awesome experience for them to share together!
Mark went 2 years ago and it's something that stays with you. He loves Guatemala and I would really like to go on a mission trip there also. Our church does this trip to Guatemala and they also do another trip to Guatemala where you go into the orphanages and just love on the babies. That's the one that I would love to go on!
Here are some pictures from Mark's last trip:
This is part of a carnival that we put on for them. They also share their faith after the carnival
Look at these children- aren't they just beautiful!
This is Mark with Ophelia- she totally stole his heart!
The kids were helping them with the stucco. They would run down the path and bring the guys the stucco for the houses.
How would you like to live this close to your neighbors!
This gives you an idea of the size of the houses:
Recognize the guy in the blue shirt? That's Mari's son Andy- he also went on this trip!
