Here are pictures of the house we have acquired for volunteer teams to stay in. We rent it for $20.00 a night per bed. This includes a simple breakfast and lunch up at our projects in Los Robles. It has 5 bedrooms and 6 baths plus an American style kitchen, dining room and living room. It also has a laundry room with washer and dryer. It is in a safe area of Panajachel and has a high courtyard fence all the way around. The yard is nice and the wrap around porch is wonderful. We stayed in it when we went to Guate two weeks ago and we loved it. It comes with a gardner . There is a maid you can hire to do clean up, cooking and laundry. If you want to book it for your team or your family when you are here doing volunteer work for our projects, let me know as it is becoming popular.
I also figured out how people that are on a budget could pay for their airline tickets. We found a wonderful and skilled dentist who charges $25.00 for an adult cleaning and $12.00 for a childs. He charged $12.00 each to fill the 3 cavities that two of my children had. My husband had a crown done for $30.00. He was as good as our USA dnetist.
We still need sponsors for our formula/incaparina program.
We still have not found Fernanda. Please pray [ or your spiritual equivalent ] that she is found soon and comes back into our safe keeping.
Bill T., I hope you don't mind, but I switched your student sponsorship from Fernanda to Brenda. Many of you will remember Brenda. She was the young teenage girl who was at our orphanage . She looked like a gringa. She has been released from the government orphanage and is living with her mother and younger sisters in very poor circumstances. They could not afford to send her to school and since she is such a good and dedicated student, I thought you would be okay with her getting your student sponsorship. If we find Fernanda, then I will find one for her. Brenda's house is made on corn stalks and has a dirt floor. Next year all 3 girls will probably come live with us. The mom has a bad growth on her shoulder that is so large she can not lift her arm. We are trying to figure out how to get her medical care.
I have attached a couple of pictures of Fernanda. The first is of her the day Pedro brought her out to our facilities the first of Oct. We were having a party for Children's day. She asked me if she could come back to live with us as her father was abusvie to her. I said as soon as I have our opening papers in hand [ supposed to get those on Weds. ] The second is of her hugging Eva who was one of our nannies when Fernanda lived with us. The third is of the two of them talking. Eva, whose 4 year old has cancer , is the maid, cook and laundry person at our volunteer house. Anyway, Fernanda went back to her dad's house and he beat her so badly, she had to be hospitalized for a week. She ran away from the nospital to the streets.
