3 weeks with Latin Link team

3 09 2012

We have just said farewell to a summer Latin Link team that were in Guatemala to help in a children’s home. The five ladies (of a team of 9) stayed in our house, sharing bed and floor space of our master bedroom for the 3 weeks.  Benjamin was chauffeur for the team during the week.

Meal times

It was great to have them with us, and we felt privileged to be able to help them, but also to hear their stories and journeys.  The boys loved having them, and snuck into the girls’ room to have the odd ‘chitty-chat’, and sometimes to play the ukulele that one of them brought.  The boys were gifted the ‘guitar’ as they call it, on the departure of the team, and now we are the happy audience to the melodious sea shanties of the little ‘uns, accompanied by the lilting sounds of Hawaiian strings.
