We were not able to set up the medical clinic as planned tonight, so we all need to work on that early in the morning.
The VBS site is still under discussion. When we arrived today we were told that they invited the school children....over 200 of them! We're excited about sharing the Good News of Jesus with so many young children, but we didn't bring that many crafts! Help Lord!! Your prayers to prepare the hearts of those we are going to serve was certainly heard, because the children are ready.
Prayers of thanksgiving for our wonderful driver, Ramero, the people who have prepared our wonderful meals, the mayor and our prayer warriors.
Patience, Trust and Wisdom.
It didn't take long to meet new friends. Playing ball is a universal language.
(PS Nicholas and Bretten probably should not be goalies for the Wisconsin Valley team.....as time expired the score was Guatemalans 42, Gringos 3)
We were able to see the house we will be completing. This little home will belong to the family of 5 we referenced earlier. Roof, 2 days of pouring the floor and one day for windows and doors...with the Lord's help that should be easy for our construction team.
It's a long way to Zacapa on very interesting roads, but we made it. After settling into our rooms, we went up the mountain to our little village. Wow! You thought the streets in central Wisconsin were bad....
Thank God for a safe trip to O'Hare, easy check-in, short flight, and a relatively easy trip through customs and immigration. We asked a lady in the Chicago airport to take this photo. It turns out she is from the little village we are heading to! Of all the people in the Chicago terminal, what are the chances of that!? (This little village is a long way from Guatemala City, and not easy to get to...but more on that later.) The officials opened several bags with medications in them, so we were a little concerned, but then they reviewed our manifest and documentation and were out in about 20 minututes.
