As many of you know who have followed our blog for any time, Tim and I are passionate about our beloved Guatemala. We have become involved with several NGO’s who are doing amazing work to help those who have not had the privilege of being born into a 1st world country.
It is with great pride that I am about to introduce you to a family that I am very impressed with. I was only introduced to their work a few short months ago. I so sincerely hope that you will take the time to watch this video that gives you an idea into what kind of work they are doing.
Have you ever asked yourself:
“What can I do to help?”
“How can I make a difference?”
“Is there something more I can do?”
“Will I leave this world better than I found it?”
“What will my legacy be?”
“What lessons am I teaching my children about giving back?”
I am asking you to take the time to watch this video before you go to bed tonight. Even better, watch it RIGHT NOW. This husband and wife team, along with their three sons are making a difference.
Click here to watch. I guarantee you will not be sorry. (Just FYI, there is a brief 15 second commercial at the start of the video)
And after watching, if you want to join us and get involved, I personally know these to be responsible, honest, hard-working and caring individuals who are truly helping those most in need.
Send them an email that will include your name, contact information, and let them know you want to help with one or more of their projects. Start somewhere. Begin a dialog. Ask how you can help. Ask where the need is greatest.

Gratitude Moment: Today I am grateful for the many blessings we take for granted each and every day. I have enough food to never have to go to sleep hungry. I can turn on a faucet and have fresh, clean water flow from a tap. I can open a drawer or a closet, reach in and chose comfortable clothing to cover my body. I have a roof over my head to shelter me from harsh weather, and a bed to sleep in at the end of the day. I was able to get a wonderful, free education growing up in the small town of Medford, Oregon. I have good health care available to me.
Most of these things are but a dream to many born in the small villages throughout Guatemala and other third world countries.
I know that some of you are not in a position to help out monetarily, but you can still help in other ways. Perhaps you have a skill where you can volunteer your services. Please reach out and let them know you want to help.
And at the very least, please share this via email, Facebook, Twitter, or other social media site to help get the word out. Thank you, thank you, thank you…
TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
