The prized tradition of the BCS grade eleven Guatemala mission trip has always been a profoundly impactful experience for its students. In our case, the opportunities and experiences we had continue to influence us today, three years later, as university students striving towards graduate school, various careers and interacting with the world in a meaningful way.

For us, the mission trip not only opened our eyes to the realities of life and healthcare in a developing country, in a way that drastically changed our internal perspective, but also ignited in us a passion to rise up and to reach out in the call of God.

Visiting the children’s hospital in Coban is a habitual part of the mission trip, and it was the beginning of our journey as the founders of Hearing the Little Heartbeats. For everyone, learning that there was not enough medications in the hospital for the doctors to treat their young patients was extremely jarring and sparked the familiar rage associated with stark injustice. This rage was so unsettling for us that it propelled us to find a way to do our part and this is where HLH was born.

Hearing the Little Heartbeats is a non-profit organization run entirely by undergraduate students, and works to increases accessibility to medications and supplies for medical clinics in Guatemala. It was founded and is led by four BCS alumni, who all participated in the mission trip while in high school.

For us, the mission trip not only opened our eyes to the realities of life and healthcare in a developing country, in a way that drastically changed our internal perspective, but also ignited in us a passion to rise up and to reach out in the call of God.

Hearing the Little Hearbeats works with clinics, organizations and pharmacies in Guatemala to help provide the medicine needed to conduct health care clinics, and is proud is work alongside hardworking healthcare professionals who have dedicated their lives to serving Guatemalan families and communities.

We are thankful for the opportunities that attending BCS provided us with, and are proud to be graduates of a school where the environment and teachers allow for inspiration and growth.
