Every year, we as the leaders work with our group beforehand to get them ready for a terrific but humbling experience. And every year we both astounded by the warmth of the Paraguayans and the openness of the LearnServe Team. This year is no exception. We have to recognize how great the LSP team is—
how tolerant they are of the cold we are in, their ability to be put into new host families and share openly with them, their willingness to try new foods without complaining and their spirit to get up everyday and extend their own boundaries and learn new things. The pictures will tell only half of the story. We have been welcomed by the Paraguayans and in turn, we have welcomed them forever into our hearts and minds! We will surely have wonderful stories for our families upon return!
