Our journey begins with a beautiful sunny day in the fascinating city of Antigua, a UNESCO world heritage site. The Faith In Practice Thompson Village team began their week with a orientation at Casa de Fe.  Casa de Fe is a temporary home for families waiting on medical procedures.  These families are met by Faith In Practice village teams like ours and referred to Faith In Practice surgical teams in Antigua.  

Today we were blessed with a introduction to the organizations efforts in Guatemala by Faith In Practice CEO Linda McCarty.  “The need here is over whelming”.   Guatemala is ranked 4th in the world in malnourished with little healthcare available to the poor.  For that reason, Faith In Practice devotes all its energy to this impoverished nation.
