Taylor went to Guatemala with her mother in the summer of 2008. This is her story about the experience. “I traveled to Guatemala with Caroline's Promise in July of 2008. I learned so much on my trip. I had never been out of the country and it was so good to travel with my mom. I loved having her all to myself. I didn't really know what to expect on our trip. I knew we were going to visit orphanages and try to spread the Gospel but I didn't realize how much different the children in Guatemala would live from the way I live in the U.S.A. My life before Guatemala was that I never wanted to go to school. I still got good grades and everything but I wasn't enjoying it. I had a hard time wanting to spend time reading. I just wasn't very interested. My visit to Guatemala changed all that. When I saw this one school we visited, the building wasn't even a full building. It didn't have walls that went to the ceiling or all the way down to the floor.
