January & February 2023 Update: Robert and Elaine, we are so grateful to have the opportunity to start a Community Center in Chajul, Guatemala.
To keep you updated with the progress of PROJECT SIMPLE GUATEMALA we will send you emails about the Center & share stories with you on this webpage.
PROJECT SIMPLE GUATEMALA
In January we spent time visiting the homes of each person that is involved in the program. In these visits we learn more about their needs, culture, and customs. The daily visits allow us the chance to participate in their day-to-day activities, helping us learn the best ways to manage a Community Center in the community of Chajul.
