These savory Guatemalan appetizers are one of the most well-loved foods for visitors to the San Lucas Mission’s Women’s Center. “Dobladas” means folded; it’s hard to believe these mouth-watering hand-helds are simply prepared vegetables folded in “masa” flour. Fortunately, you can find all the ingredients to make this recipe in the US. Try it out for yourself!

In the last few months, our lives have been turned upside down. So much of what we have taken for granted has been taken away and we are scrambling to find a way to navigate through a world we are struggling to understand. As of April 8, Guatemala has 80 confirmed cases of Covid-19. Of course, as we all know, there are many more cases out there. And, although there are no confirmed cases as of April 8 in San Lucas, we expect that will change soon.

Many years ago, our founder Father Greg started distributing bracelets to Mission visitors. He would give each visitor three bracelets upon their departure: one to keep for themselves and two to give to others with a story about their experience in San Lucas. We revived this tradition in our Visitors Program a few years ago. And while many of us can’t experience Guatemala for ourselves right now, we can tell stories of the impact it had on our lives.

The Health Promoter Program is now at the front lines of the growing Covid-19 threat. As you read this, Health Promoters are receiving special training, protective equipment, and medicine. They are beginning to use a mass-texting application to communicate quickly with each other to monitor the spread of the virus in their communities. They will also use this system to receive updated treatment protocols. And while, as of March 29th, Covid-19 has not arrived in San Lucas, they will be ready when it does.

Parents, teachers, students: We have a special challenge for you!
