SPRINT Guatemala 2013

Seattle Pacific University students learning and serving alongside local leaders in Guatemala.

Update from Chimaltenango

Our time in Chimaltenango was an amazing experience. Gwen and Brooke worked in Secondario (high school), while Lindsey and Alexis worked in Primaria (Elementary). Amanda worked some in Primaria, but also taught a few Bible classes! Along with the classes we treated approximately 70 students and teachers with Fluoride. Dentist trips are very expensive and for most of them our fluoride treatments would be their only treatment for one year.

We were in Chimaltenango Monday through Wednesday. On Thursday we spent the day with our families. It was a day if rest in the city due to the celebration of a saint. Today we went with a group of our students from Guatemala City to a public school. There our students had games, songs, a drama, food, and more fluoride treatments. Kids from the public school accepted Christ after their performance there. It was so wonderful to see our students interacting with the Elementary students at the public school. They all exuded servant hearts and were an excellent reminder as to why our group is in Guatemala.

Thank you for all your prayers! Hasta Luego!

Pictures to come!
