Distinctive Patios sponsors Rick’s mission trip to Guatemala.

Posted on: No Comments

Just before the beginning of Distinctive Patios’ “spring fever”, Rick was part of a team that traveled to Panajachel, Guatemala to help build a concrete house for a single mom and her daughters.

To give you some perspective on the construction practices used….all the blocks were cut by hand with machetes and all concrete was delivered/mixed by hand!  Below are several pictures from the trip.   The smiling faces help you understand how easy it is to make a real difference in a child’s life and what real poverty is.  If you’d like to sponsor a child’s education or help fill some other need,  you can contact the Mayan Families organization.  No question….you will get more than you give as you provide hope for the future.  One other note….after the trip….Distinctive Patios donated a hand-held grinder to make the work a bit easier.
