Inspiration from Guatemala and the #fhbloggers

The Food for the Hungry bloggers are in Guatemala this week, and I have been soaking up every post.  Maybe it’s because I’ve seen firsthand the way communities are transformed through child sponsorship, or maybe it’s because this crew is so dang talented.  In any case, here are a few of my favorites so far… Read more
