No more widow makers!

Great news for the many people who have planned a short-term missions trip to Casa Shalom:  the "widow makers" (electric shower heads) in the team bathrooms are no more!  Yesterday, we installed 2 gas water heaters and there's no longer any risk of getting "zapped" while taking a shower.  A big thanks to missionary Bob Kornegay for donating one of the heaters.

Creativity with cardboard!

Yesterday, some of Casa Shalom's boys got creative with spare cardboard and made an "airplane." They packed as many inside as possible and "flew" around the world!

A great quote passed on by International Orphan Support, one of Casa Shalom's main supporting organizations:

"Compassion changes the world, one life at a time."

Four years ago today, we moved to Guatemala to begin what we thought would be a one year stint on the mission field.  4 years later, we are still ministering to the wonderful children of Casa Shalom and we couldn't be happier.  We feel blessed to be able to serve the 62 amazing kids that call Casa Shalom home.
