Guatemala here we are!!! We arrived safely late last night and crashed in bed. This morning all of us were eager to see what the Guatemalan countryside looked like. It is wild with lush plant life, flowers, and tropical plants. It is NOT FLAT! The mountains are awe inspiring- we even saw the volcanos erupt! Don’t worry, parents, we didn’t let any of the kids get lava between their toes! After going up one mountain side and down another for an hour and a half, we can to the refuge camp, where we were to build our houses. It was extremely HOT and sunny. You would be proud to see how hard all the kids worked! We constructed metal frames my screwing them together and then stood them on end. Later, we hung and mudded dry wall. All the time, we loved on the children. They are beautiful with their sweet brown eyes. Mostly, they are very very loving and helpful (however, Micah had to break up a village brawl using his freakish man strength among three preschool age boys). Tonight we had Lasangna and yeast rolls for supper- it was very good. After supper, we went to devotions and had praise and worship. Jaycee insisted that we sing the song, Potter’s Hand. It was as if we were in Heaven in the Lord’s very own presence. He has been so good to us today. I am realizing on a even bigger scale how God is so close, so real, so good, so powerful, and so, so WORTHY!
-Love you all!-
