The group traveling to Guatemala will include volunteers and priests who will help the kids with culture shock and any trepidation they might have.

“The parents had no qualms about sending their kids,” said Kremer. “But for the kids, they are meeting virtual strangers.”

Argueta is a dual citizen of the U.S. and Guatemala, so he understands those emotions.

“Some of them will never want to go back,” Argueta said. “For others, it might be the start of a lifelong relationship. I see these kids as ambassadors to Guatemala.”

Coincidentally, the kids will arrive back in Worthington on July 13, the weekend of the city’s annual international festival to celebrate the community’s diversity.
