I brought two 70-pound suitcases of donations. We slept in mosquito nets in a chicken coop for a week a week.  The goal was to teach the children English, which was a huge challenge for me since I don't know Spanish. 

Here's the kids lining up to register for class.  Pastor is the man with the green cap on the far left.
Notice the black water container on top of building - that was our water supply for the entire week.
