I am Marcia Talbot, and my husband Stephen and I live with our five girls in Bradford, Ontario, Canada. In late 2008, Stephen and I were invited to travel to Guatemala with my dear friend Leceta Guibault. Leceta started leading teams to Guatemala after visiting several times with her daughter Kahleah, who was born in Guatemala. I had heard about their adventures for so many years, and knew that traveling with them would be an amazing experience! After many months of planning and fundraising, in May 2009 we were in Guatemala as a part of Team Ceta. As expected, it was a life changing experience, and we both came home knowing we would return as often as possible. Stephen has been on Team Ceta three times since then, and I have been on five trips. Our daughter Meghan traveled with me in April 2012. I have also traveled back with friends, to visit and take donations.
In July 2013 Stephen and I traveled back to Guatemala, and took our first team with us. We had an amazing two weeks, working at Misioneros del Camino orphanage and neurological clinic, with Mayan Families in San Antonio Palopo and visiting other homes as well as the Ninos con Bendicion group and some of their families. An amazing time was had by all!
Our next team will be traveling in the summer of 2015. We will be visiting two orphanages - Misioneros del Camino and Semillas de Amor. We will visit the different programs offered by Mayan Families in the Panajachel/Lake Atitlan region, and will spend a great deal of time with the Ninos con Bendicion and their families. Our biggest project will be fundraising for and assisting with the building of homes for two of the families, as well as a youth centre for the group.
