Words from volunteers Linda and Barbara.

We received this just two days after Barbara and Linda left.
We would like to share them.
This is their reflections on their time with Mayan Families.

We loved being here.

It has been painful.
It has been intense.
It has been educational.
It has been productive.
It has been humbling.

To see how hard you work.

To see how respectful you all are.

To see so much need.
To see so much gratitude.
It is true that love is a verb and that we all need to do the best we can where we are with what we have.

You all do that beautifully.

with love,
Linda Parkinson and Barbara Bemis.


  1. Beautifully said and oh so true!

  2. It is a dream of mine to come and volunteer. Hopefully I can make it a reality. I love when you post things volunteers have said.
