I have spent around 6 weeks in Guatemala, and enjoyed every day of it! I first set foot in this beautiful country in December 2015 on a trip with United Youth Corps to serve at an orphanage in Solola on Lake Atitlan. Those two weeks were amazing – bonding with my co-volunteers and having my heart melt for the kiddos there. I then returned one year later to intern at the orphanage for three weeks and then keep the Feast of Tabernacles in the neighboring city of Panajachel. While interning I had the opportunity to help with the organization Hope Renewed which was building a school in the the city dump where many children live in Guatemala City.
