Or hello everyone! This summer I have been given the amazing opportunity to travel down to Guatemala to work with the Jacaltenango people. Guatemala is rich in culture and history, with Spanish as the main language but over 22 indigenous languages. The Jacaltecos is manly a Mayan population with very few foreigner’s in the Jacalteco area. The Jacaltecos are considered very honorable and there towns are known for being safe and having very little crime. Jacaltenango is a rural area yet still has an above average education level. Agriculture is the main economy, coffee is the main product, but they also grow such things as fruit, peanuts, and hibiscus tea.
I will be heading down with my grandparents, my uncle, my aunt and my cousin, and a few other people. We be will doing an eyeglass clinic, which my grandparents also did last year along with my cousin. I am so excited to be a part of this amazing adventure.
I would like to ask all of you for your prayers, that we have a good trip and that that the Lord will move and bless the people of Guatemala. The cost is $1500 per person. The first half has already been paid, but the second half, $750 is due by May 1st. if you would like to make a donation and help support me you can send it to Kalyn Hassoldt 12375 woodlake rd. Elbert Co. 80106. In the memo line write Short-Term Missions trip for a tax deduction. Nevertheless, most importantly I thank each and every one of you for your prayers and your love. Because as much as I might need the funds none of this would be possible at all without the love of our Heavenly Father. So thank you all and I can’t wait to tell you all about my trip.
“Rejoice always, prey without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” 1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18
