Parishioners Ann Beck and Holly Boone traveled in November to the mountains of Guatemala to attend the graduation of 9th and 11th graders at Nicolás Christian School.
Epiphany was honored at the ceremonies for the scholarship aid our church has provided in this poor, remote area where free public education ends at 6th grade. Epiphany teams have visited this indigenous Mayan region since 2006, when our church partnered with Seattle’s Agros Foundation to promote land ownership for the villagers of Belén. See graduation highlights in this video.
A additional highlight of the trip was the graduation ceremony at a tiny village preschool established as a pilot project of Nicolás Christian School. You can watch the darling event in this video.
