I’m excited to join Lindsey Nobles to lead a team of Food for the Hungry (FH) bloggers to Guatemala from August 4-9. It is my first trip with FH. And my first – in over a decade – to Latin America. Life has been so busy lately that I haven’t taken the time to sit down and get excited for what we’re going to do!
FH has been in Guatemala since 1976, entering after an earthquake killed 22,000 people and left a million homeless. Delaware has 950,000 people living there – can you imagine if an earthquake left the entire state of Delaware homeless? From the 1970s until present, FH has done different types of work in the country to help impoverished communities.
I’m most excited to see various programs in action ranging from agriculture to education to water. We’ll experience the work of FH transforming communities and changing the lives of people for generations.
Will you join me?
FH bloggers use their voice and influence to bring hope to children around the globe. We’ll have a number of great opportunities on the trip for you to join us – including a live Twitter chat on: Tuesday, August 6, at 8 p.m. (EST).
You’ll be able to interact with the bloggers while we are in a Guatemalan community and learn more about the community’s challenges and progress to end poverty. You can follow us on Twitter using #fhbloggers. You can join us on Instagram. Or Facebook.
The biggest impact you can make with us on this trip? You can sponsor a child. When you sponsor a child, you help provide access to education, food, spiritual development, clean water and more. You can do this for children in Gautemala.
If you comment on this blog and mention the first name of the child you sponsor and what community he or she lives in, I’ll see if I can meet your child while I am in country!
Join us in August in Guatemala as we use our voices to change the lives of the people we serve at FH.
