A few days ago, a church from the indigenous K'iche region of Guatemala visited Casa Shalom to bring snacks, presents, and candy-filled piñatas for the children at the orphanage. We were fascinated by their native dress and by the fact that many of them didn't speak Spanish, communicating instead in K'iche, an indigenous language that researchers say has been spoken since the time of Christ! It was humbling to see these obviously needy people with such a desire to bless the less-fortuante. The children of Casa Shalom were blessed by their presents and we were blessed by their giving spirit.
