Cochrane Alliance Church - October 2015 | Hungry For Life

October 2015: ,

A team of 5 leaders cast vision with Pastor Victor on how to best develop sustainability for the School. They looked into economic and micro-enterprise development with families in the community.

Team Testimonials:

"[This trip has impacted me] to give time and money that is helpful and not providing or contributing to the problem."
"[It broke my heart] to see how some Guatemalan pastors are giving up comfort and ease to minister to people in their country."
"[This trip] has forced me to really think through how our actions impact the local community."
"[This trip has changed me to be] more open to learning and not as quick in telling."
"I have come to realize that I need to keep putting God first, relying on Him and not trying to do things on my own strength."
"[One highlight was] seeing the school in operation and seeing the local children in the school who otherwise wouldn't be in school."

A big day

This morning we had an early start.

We were treated to a lovely bunch of children who attend the San Raymundo primary school, showcasing their singing, dancing and acting skills. We participated in the pinata bashing and the children shared their sweet loot with us.
