SPRINT Guatemala 2013

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

Week 3!

imageimageThis week we returned to the city, back to our normal classes. We also taught English classes to the Primaria in the afternoon. We divided the kids into 3 sections where they did activities to help practice their vocabulary. Alexis and Amanda played games, Gwen and Lindsey had the kids do skits and sing songs, and Brooke had different art projects for them. It was so wonderful to hear the kids practicing their vocab and shouting “Old McDondald had a Farm” at the top of their lungs. The kids here are so full of energy and eager to spend time with us, whether it is in the classroom, playing games, or having a tickle fight during recess!

On Thursday we had the opportunity to hang out with the Pasitos (PreK). Again the kids were divided into stations where they did art, played games, and cooked!

It is hard to believe that we only have one more week left here! We have so enjoyed learning about the culture and building relationships. There are constantly opportunities to experience new experiences, such as participating in a game of soccer during gym class, playing card games with new friends, or making Choco Bananos with our families!

Here are some pictures from the last two weeks!

Love Alexis, Amanda, Brooke, Gwen, and Lindsey!

PS Owen, we are expecting our prize for most Blog followers in the fall, we didn’t forget 🙂

  1. Thanks for the update, friends!

    I haven’t forgotten your prize for having the most blog followers (that is, I remember now that you’ve reminded me…). However, I’m not sure I can find a prize as good as the Choco Bananas you’re enjoying in Guatemala!

    Hi all,
    Alexis, what a wonderful experience for you, and most of all, you are making a difference in God’s world.
    Love, Grandma
