Most college aged kids find some
exotic location to lay in the sun and get wasted
and do things they otherwise would not do at home.
As of today, my baby is in Guatemala for the week for a service trip.
These are a few pics of the beautiful grounds of the Mission.
She is really excited because there is a health clinic on site
and she hopes she can help out. She is in grad school
for occupational therapy and loves it!
The area is exotic and full of local tradition,
some a mix of religious and mystic history.
The Mission promotes the sale of local coffee and
you can even purchase some online.
Aren't the coffee beans beautiful?
My baby will only be gone for a week,
but I'm sure there will stories to be shared for years to come.
If you'd like to "visit" the Mission, go to:

Postscript: I received this email this evening: "
Guatemala Service Group just phoned and checked in. They are safe and sound
in the country and at San Lucas Mission. They are doing well. Thanks for your
patience." She made it! (I'm the Momma!)
