An experience of a lifetime!
A missionary experience has been on my bucket list for a long time, so when discussions rose within our youth group to travel to Guatemala to engage in this mission, I jumped at the opportunity. We started working on and organising a number of fundraising activities from months before our departure, however when we came to the country, that was the real deal!
There is a difference between everything that we hear about such countries and what you experience and see with your own eyes! There are so many things that have impressed me everyday during our stay here, starting from the smallest things. The villages that we visited with Father Anton have each been a unique experience but they did have one thing in common – the simplicity and sincere happiness of the people living there!
Personally, this experience has helped me look at the life we are living from a different point of view and would undoubtedly love to relive it again in the future!
