We have good news this week! A professional photographer just booked her flight to Guatemala and she will be living and staying at the orphanage for a couple of weeks in August. She’ll be there while 3 new volunteers and I are there…in less than two weeks.
During her two week stay at Hogar Miguel Magone, Gordana plans to document the day-to-day lives of our children. She’ll be in their dorms, in their classrooms and in their lives. She’ll watch them eat, play, sing, dance, go to school, do homework, do their assigned chores and so much more. Oh, I know she’ll take some wonderful pictures. In addition, some time will be spent photographing the villagers, the nearby villages and surrounding terrain, the school, the walk to school, perhaps Antigua and also the rooms, church and buildings of the orphanage.
We are thinking about publishing a book! How about that? This book could be the start of something big……more worldwide knowledge of the orphanage, the kids, the country and…. it would be published with the intent of being a fundraiser for the orphanage. Gordana also plans to submit photos and stories to magazines. Hey, this is good publicity and we welcome it.
Gordana… we welcome you to our family at the orphanage. Bienvenido!
