Peace, Hope, Health, Safety, Completeness...
Within 30 seconds of seeing the living conditions of these precious people, my life was changed forever. Thank you, Shalom Foundation, for your support and love towards the people of Guatemala and every volunteer team member. May God continue to bless this ministry.

"The bonds that we make with the people while we are in Guatemala are so great. We can see how helping them has changed their lives but I can also say the being with them changes my life each time I visit. They do more for me than I do for them."
— Ken Kleespies
I am so thankful for the opportunity to work with this gifted and generous group. It is inspiring to be surrounded by people with such ambitious and selfless hearts. Traveling to Guatemala is an amazing experience in itself but being with this group is surely changing me.

While I participated in this mission with the intent of providing interpretation/translation services for the medical staff at Vanderbilt and the patients and staff in Guatemala, I soon realized that this experience is greater than me and that my services extended beyond breaking language barriers. I am forever grateful for the opportunity to be able to be the language liaison in providing medical care, hope and encouragement for families in Guatemala who otherwise would not have received such help. I believe we all must use our gifts, skills, experiences and circumstances to better our communities and world. Thus, I look forward to being able to continue to contribute my language services in Guatemala and other Spanish-speaking countries in the future.
