I spent the rest of my time in Antigua, Guatemala. Antigua is very beautiful and a lot more safe and laid back, so if you are planning a trip to Guatemala, I recommend staying in Antigua (it’s probably an hour or so outside of the capital). It was amazing to finally get to meet Luis. He was such a sweet boy and he was so smart. I got to spend the day with him and his mother, as well as two local volunteers with Children International. We went to a history museum, which was beautiful and a lot of fun. I also got to visit Luis’ home and meet his two little brothers and his grandmother. I am so blessed to have been able to have this opportunity, and I am hoping to return to Guatemala in the summer of 2015.
If you are an amazing person and want to be even more amazing and have a pocketful of change to spare each month, please consider sponsoring a child. You will not only be helping this child go to school, eat a meal, and have access to health care services, but you will also be letting them know that someone out there in the big wide world cares about them.
