The President of Guatemala Service Projects, Jennifer Demar, and her family spent two months during summer 2021 in Chichicastenango, Guatemala.  During the two months, she hosted two travel teams — one comprised of adult adoptees and the other of adoptive families.

When she was not co-leading the teams with Project Manager and Team Coordinator, Diego Xirúm, Jennifer was actively participating in the implementation of projects on-site, meeting with community leaders to discuss current or future projects, and had many opportunities to imbed in the local culture.

Her time was spent learning the language, soaking in the daily life and learning the lifebeat of the community.

During this social/cultural event, Jennifer will share photos, videos and stories from her amazing two-month stay in Guatemala as well as some fresh guacamole using Diego’s personal recipe and some rosa de jamaica, her favorite beverage from Guatemala.

Join us!  Please send an email letting Jennifer know how many will be coming and on which date.  Or, if you have Facebook, you can show your interest or attendance on either of the dates, both of which can be found at this Events link.
