Hillsboro

K'ekchi country is in the northern part of Guatemala.  Hillsboro church has a partnership with the Presbytery in that area.  We spent our week painting a dormitory, hosting short health clinics with our nurse, visiting local hospitals, taking kids to some local ruins and spending time getting to know our brothers and sisters.  Every time I go out with a group I always learn something new about Guatemala and it's culture.  Each region has a different language, traje (traditional dress),culture and feel.  Check out the baby hanging from the ceiling below as well as the many bare feet and muddy toes.   Such is the life in the Peten of Guatemala.
