Last July, a mission team from my church raised the funds and constructed a kitchen for an elementary school in the mountain village of Chikisis, Guatemala. Previously, women cooked lunch for the children over an open fire indoors. To add to the ill health from the smoke, for many of the children in Chikisis this is the only or the only nutritious meal of their day.
This July we started a multiyear sanitation project in a neighboring village, but before we left we hiked up to Chikisis to check out the finished kitchen. Thank you to all of you whose generosity makes projects like this transformative in others’ lives.
