I wanted to come up with a list of things that I’m thankful for at home after spending a week here in Guatemala.

  • Being able to flush toilet paper
  • Having a never ending supply of clean drinking water
  • Not being concerned about accidentally drinking the shower water
  • Not being concerned about accidentally rinsing my toothbrush in the tap water
  • My privacy. The rooms we are staying in echo. You can hear everything outside. Plus, I have found that the bathrooms aren’t very private, either. Maybe they keep part of it open air because you can’t flush the toilet paper?
  • The traffic at home is nowhere near as bad as the traffic here on a daily basis. And I can’t imagine having to worry about the crazy motorcycle drivers weaving through traffic.

Things I’m thankful to have experienced while here:

  • Obviously, helping the orphanages.
  • The culture
  • The landscape
  • The food
  • Getting to know so many others on the work team

Things I miss at home:

  • My wife and kids
  • My bed
  • My job and the friends I have there

Surprisingly, I didn’t miss technology all that much. Sure, I have my iPad here, but I only used it to blog. I didn’t check email, Facebook, or anything else while here.

Last, but certainly not least, I would like to thank the many people who donated money toward this trip, as well prayed for our safety while here. You all are as much a part of the team as Domino and I were. Thank you all very much. I hope this blog helped show you what we were able to accomplish and experience thanks to your help.
