Last year my family and I took a vacation to Central America. We had been to Costa Rica before but this trip was to Guatemala. What an experience! Perhaps the most profound trip we have ever taken. We went with a group called Unbound. Unbound is an organization dedicated to the poor and marginalized. They are Christian, gospel based, spiritual luminaries dedicated to the less fortunate of the world. We first heard about Unbound at Sunday mass. We signed up to be sponsors and the next thing you know we’re visiting Kendal, our sponsored child, in Guatemala.  We lived with other sponsors in an Unbound building. We traveled by bus from Guatemala City to Quetzaltenango. Along the way we visited villages of sponsored children. They performed for us, fed us and brought us to their humble homes. Kendal had to take a nine hour bus ride from the border of Honduras to be with us for one afternoon. He said no words, was scared and anxious, but he loved the music and we loved him.
