Looking at My Past, I found My Future, Alex Chisholm Guibalt shares His Story in Kansas City


 
May 14, 7-9pm
Location:  Shawnee Civics Center; 13817 Johnson Drive; Shawnee, KS 66216
 
GAPKC is honored to be hosting Alex and Leceta Chisholm Guibault from Our Guatemala: Travel with Purpose in Kansas City to share their story! Alex has an incredible story and tells it well. This will be a great opportunity for children and families to really look at another perspective outside the one that they are accustomed to living. They will learn what life is like in a third world country. Guests will learn about Guatemalan culture and life in Guatemala for the average person. Alex will share about his life and what he has overcome and how he is using his past to create a brighter future. Alex will speak about abandonment, neglect, homelessness and how he finally found his family as a young adult and is now embodying... the slogan of Be the Change.

This will also be a kickoff event for the water project in Santa Maria Ixhuatan, Santa Rosa, Guatemala. Alex will share how he came to become involved in this community and the goals of the project.

There will be light Guatemalan themed refreshments for a small donation as well as items for sale that were made in Guatemala. There will also be a raffle! All proceeds and donations will go to support the Water Project in Santa Maria Ixhuatan, Guatemala.
