Have you ever wanted to be part of something bigger than yourself? To make a real difference in the lives of others?
For over 11 years, that's what Podcaters' Hangout family member and contributor Shawn Smith and his wife have done through their Mission work in villages of Guatemala. These villages house children and their families who live in extreme poverty - many of these individuals living on less than $1.25 per day in wages.
Because of this, their living conditions are unlike anything you or I are used to. They live in one-room houses made of corrugated metal, thatched corn-stalks, cinder block and dirt. They live without any running water, and they even cook over open flames. Even worse, because it rains so much in Guatemala, they have to cook over these campfires, inside their homes.
This creates very unsafe living conditions as the smoke and soot have nowhere to escape. This is just one of the challenges that the beautiful families living in these villages in Guatemala have to face.
That's why we're hosting Podcasters' Week: To dramatically help these families... and you're invited.
