Phodographer Austin Lane on Ambergris Caye, Belize, September 2010

What a great time watching the printer and sharing with moments with the kids! Note how the student is trying to show off the heart and peace sign on Foto’s paws!

Co-founders Carolyn and Austin Lane (shown) visited Holy Cross School on the north island San Mateo area of Ambergris Caye in Belize. Missionaries Francis and Vernon Wilson described the incredible growth of the volunteer built and equipped island school now serving over 500 students in just 4 years.

Francis emailed….Thank you so very much for sharing your time, talents and treasure (smile!) at Holy Cross. I happened to be near as the little ones were going home that day. They were soooooo excited showing off their photos to mom/dad/grannie/whoever!! Everyone loved the work you did!
