New Life is a small operation, taking in disabled students in one of the poorest towns in Guatemala.  

Dr. Aldo Aguirre, Honorary Vice Consul of Guatemala and President of the Executive Committee of the Consular Chamber, was on hand to answer questions and support the valiant efforts of Judy Kerschner, the Founder of New Life.  Consul members in attendance also included Lena Walther, Honorary Consul of Sweden, Paulina Biggs Sparkuhl, Honorary Consul of Chile, and John Petkus, Honorary Consul of Poland. 

The gracious hosts opened their lovely Las Vegas home and served up a sumptuous selection of food and beverage.  Ms. Kerschner brought video and great deal of her endeavors in Guatemala.  Funds were donated by attendees.
