Happy Thanksgiving, Feliz Dia de Acción de Gracias from Mayan Families!   You are amazing!  
Thank you for what you have helped us to accomplish this year!Thank you for the food to feed the elderly, the children, the babies...the families who were hungry and had nothing to eat. Thank you for the shoes that children now have to wear on their feet, warm clothes, blankets to keep them warm at this very chilly time of the year.Right now there is very cold weather in Guatemala...some of our families live in  flimsy, ramshackle houses...the wind is rushing through...but thanks to so many of you..there are also families who have strong, safe houses to live in. They have warm beds and blankets...where before they were sleeping on dirt floors. 
Many of our students have graduated this year....this would have been an impossible dream for them without your help. Others hope to go to school next year...and you are making this a reality. There are people who owe their lives to the medical care you have provided...and there are many more who are living healthier lives because of their access to medical care, clean water and stoves that you have given. 
Micro loans have helped many get a hand up this year...starting their own businesses or increasing an existing business..helping them to succeed a little more to support their families. 
Thank you on behalf of all the newborn babies, children, women and men in Guatemala that you have helped ..thanks for all the joy, the hugs, the smiles, the gifts, the help and the hope you have given!
Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Holidays to you and your family from our all of us at Mayan Families.
