Loving the Least of TheseApril 1, 2016
In Guatemala the school year goes from January to October. So in November we ran a two week intensive training course for our students to close the year out.
In the cooking classes with Sharie Martiny, the students baked and decorated Christmas cookies and treats, made pies for Thanksgiving dinner and enjoyed eating the snacks they made.
Tim Martiny taught the engineering and woodworking classes where the students designed and made Christmas decorations which they are selling as part of our entrepreneurial program. The profits of all products made by the students go to the children and most of it is placed into savings.
During the camp it was wonderful to see how our classes throughout the year have paid off, watching the students use the skills and knowledge we have taught them to accomplish their tasks was a wonderful validation of the value of the work we do, hour after hour, day after day and year after year until our job is done.
