Daughters from Quetzaltenango Serve in Medical Mission

Three Daughters of the King from Santa Maria Magdalena Chapter at Iglesia San Marcos in Quetzaltenango took part in a medical mission in one of the mountain villages in Guatemala. Claudia Perez, Sara Perez Rodriquez and Dulce Garcia, accompanied their priest, the Rev. Dr. Roberto Armas, to Chicalibal, where they assisted a medical mission team from St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Conway, Arkansas. There was a special connection with the US team since Daughters from the Imogene Chapter at St. Peter’s helped to form Santa Maria Magdalena Chapter in 2014.
