The Melia Family Foundation delegation left Guatemala this past Monday night. Yes, they had a fantastic time, bonded with the kids, played soccer and other games and fell in love with Guatemala, the villages, the villagers, our kids and the orphanage. They are hooked. Word has it that they are planning a larger group trip, for a longer period of time. This trip is tentatively planned for September or October 2010.

You too can visit our kids at Hogar Miguel Magone. Just ask and we’ll get it set up.

Thanks Melia Family Foundation! We appreciate you!

Visitors at the orphanage!

Four adult volunteers arrived at the orphanage today in Guatemala. They are there until Monday morning, May 17th.

And on Monday morning, May 17th, 4 more volunteers arrive from Pennsylvania. They are there for 5 days.

On May 27th, another volunteer arrives for a week.

Phew… thank goodness for all these volunteers, helpers, supporters and fans. We appreciate them. They take time out of their lives to spend time with our children and to enrich their lives. The volunteers pay their own costs to fly to Guatemala. They raise $ for the orphanage, treat the kids to special things and share their hearts. Also, think about the time away from their jobs, homes and families. What would we do without them?
