After finishing a week of hard work, we took some time to reflect on and celebrate a great week. Our weekend started with a trip to Pacaya, an active volcano. The group was able to see a bit of the Guatemalan countryside, and enjoy the beauty of nature for a bit. While most of us were excited to hike, a few girls jumped on the opportunity to take a “taxi” up the mountain.
From Pacaya, we went to Antigua. We had our wrap up meeting where each member shared how they experienced beauty and how they experienced affliction during the week. The conversations spilled out from the meeting and filled the free day.
After enjoying Antigua cuisine and market shopping, we took off for the airport to say goodbye. We’re all thankful for a wonderful week in the community getting to know new friends!
