I have a few tidbits I’d like to share with you!
First, I was able to determine that the altitude of the community of Cantón Rio Camanibal is 8000 ft! People visiting Denver mention the Mile-High city and how the altitude sometimes affects the body, especially during exercise. When I was in Guatemala last year, cities I visited were in the low 5000 ft range. Next year’s trip will allow me to test my altitude fortitude! 🙂
Second, the planning and development phase of our library project continues this coming week — when the principal of the elementary school in Cantón Rio Camanibal (near Chichicastenango, Guatemala) will meet with a small committee and finalize the budget for our library project. I am excited to have a hard number in mind so that I know exactly what our fundraising goal should be! I will keep you posted!
In the meantime, I have had the joy of receiving support towards this project in a variety of ways! I love it when that happens — but it makes the wait even harder to bear. I get so excited about these trips!
