Recap of Xela, Guatemala
Embarking on this experience, my expectations were simply to build a house, and return home. But what I returned with was much more. I made great new friends, experienced a country I would have never visited otherwise, was exposed to a new culture, and most of all helped out a family that was in need. The people of Guatemala were warm, kind and very excited to see us, which made the “work” easier.
To anyone who is considering a Give Back trip, I would highly recommend it.
