God created all forms of life. One form of life helps other forms to live and grow. The Creation Story reminds us that God is the Creator. Paying attention to and nurturing the plants and animals, we show respect for all of God's good gifts.
Some of God's creatures that I have met here in Guatemala, I have never met in the USA. I have had many new experiences with animals and plants.
On one of my first visits to the kindergarten, I noticed that there was a bee's nest attached to the front door of a classroom. I walked past with trepidation. Ismael reassured me that the bees were a source of good luck and that since the bees knew everyone, they would not sting!
A donor's gift allowed about 50 chidren from Santa Ana to visit a nearby small outdoor zoo. Some of the pictures below show some animals.
