I have the opportunity to spend 1 year in Panajachel, Guatemala as an intern with Dirty Feet Missions, a Non-profit organization out of Florida. This will be my second year serving in Guatemala and I am so excited to get to serve, lead, and grow more. During this time, we will work alongside Porch de Salomon building not only homes for the indigenous Mayan people, but relationships as well. In addition, the team I am going with will take a journey through the life of Jesus by serving and learning what it looks like to serve as Jesus did. Along with building a home, we will do spontaneous outreach projects which may include: flower outreach, community block parties, VBS, and random acts of kindness. During the six weeks I will live, eat, and work along 11 other girls as a team and experience the Guatemalan culture while we shop for groceries at the local market, play soccer and go to church with the locals, walk the streets to and from our house, and work with limited tools. We work hard but have fun too!
