Guatemala Trip

We owe a debt a gratitude to Gordon and Pam Hamm for the groundwork they have done in Seanahu-Seamy. The people Love them and appreciate so much all they have done for them and continue to do. It was really an amazing trip. I will outline some of the projects and some recommendations for the future. With all the projects we worked through the District President, President Lico. Gordon had made that recommendation and it worked very well. I have met few church leaders who have the passion for the work and the Love for his people that he demonstrated to our group. He was always the one in front, lifting the heavy objects giving of himself. I know his personal situation is tight because of the economy. He took the 10 ride in the bus to meet us at the airport, and the 10 hr ride back to Guatemala with us. These trips were round trip for us. On one day we went to Semuc Champay and he went with us. The driver took the wrong turn and it ended up taking us 6 Hours to get there, fortunately it only took 3 to get us back. We took many of our meals in his home, because his restaraunt in the square did not have water. The meals were very good and the price of 15Q (around $2 US) were very reasonable, about half of what the meal would be in the other restaraunt. He received instruction for the stove installation from the representaive of the Maya Relief and went with us into the mountains to install the stoves. Some of the areas of his district are 4 Hours from Senahu on dirt roads and on one Sunday he made the trip into the mountains to see to the needs of members in his district. Having said that about him, it would be my recommendation that anyone we consider in that area for employment be President Lico. He has a very good handle on the needs in his district and has the respect of his members.

Utah Dental Convention

We finished the Utah Dental Convention Friday afternoon. We made some wonderful connections. So many people who had been on expeditions with us came to our booth and we relived their exciting adventures. It is so amazing to be around such great people who know how to serve and love others. It enlivens the soul!

Our next adventure will be to Tijuana in a couple of weeks.

Ambulance on the Amazon

We donated this ambulance to Tena, Ecuador last year. This shows them using it in the headwaters of the Amazon. Who would have thought the CAF would be sending an ambulance that would ferry across the Amazon river to serve the indigenous people in Ecuador. Great work done by Dr. Zambrano. Thank you all for the funds we received last year to fund this wonderful effort.

AMAZING EXPERIENCES IN THE ANASAZI VALLEY

“When I heard the talk “Opportunities to do Good” by President Henry B. Eyring in the April 2011 General Conference I excited about the blessings he promised, particuarly to families who served together. Following the example of a great family in the ward we (as a family) have been doing regular service with the Provo Food and Care Coaltion, but I wondered if there was more we could do. Another family in the ward had had a great experience serving in Mexico with Charity Anywhere, and we arranged to go to Tijuana for Christmas (that’s why we were making blocks)……..

Mexico Trip

A group of around 30 people drove down to Tijuana Mexico over the Christmas break to do some construction projects for some needy families. Clint Carter took his flip video along and took some short video clips of some of the activities. We would like to thank all of those families, and students for giving of their time and money to help on this project. We hope that all that were involved found the experience fun and rewarding.
