While in Les Caye we were able to visit a school run by the Bethanie Mission (where we stayed while in Les Caye).
Can you say cutest kids EVER…
When we went to the orphanage (also run by Bethanie Mission)… Robert (who’s a full time missionary in Guatemala) brought wooden flutes to give to the kids. It’s a good thing he also brought someone who knows how to play flute (me in case you didn’t know).
So I taught a blind girl to play a recorder style flute and another little girl how to play a more traditional flute. They are similar to penny flutes – as their fingers are slightly different than a concert flute. Not that most people care, but I am telling you anyway because it’s my story and I want to.
A few of the children at the orphanage were victims of the earthquake losing their parents.
The city of Les Caye was relatively spared from the earthquake. We did receive word that about a week after we left there was a big flood in the city. The school we visited flooded. I haven’t heard word as to how much damage was done, but hopefully it was minimal.
