Que es el amor? Que sabes?
(What is love? Do you know?)
We certainly learned about love today and this entire week in
. This morning after breakfast, two of our kind Guatemalan missionaries took our group to Kaminaljuyu archeological park. We spent a few hours looking at remains from Mayan ruins and running around. We must have taken 500 pictures in those few hours. It was great to get out of the house and have some free time to run around! Guatemala
After we got back from the park and had lunch, we spent another day with the Guatemalan families, but this time families from
came to us at the mission. We performed various children’s songs in Spanish then acted out a skit demonstrating love from one human to another and Christ’s ultimate act of love. Tito, Dominique, Alanah and Rachel worked with the younger children singing songs, giving a faith lesson and doing arts and crafts. Cesar, Karen and I spent time with the teenagers discussing our definition of love and how we can show God’s intention of love in all of our relationships. Guatemala City
At the adult service, Manuel was asked to pray for Carlota, a sick woman who is close to meeting our Heavenly Father. So we visited La Libertad so we could pray at her bedside. It was a very special moment for the team as we prayed for her and her family, we witnessed her children shared their own special words with their mother. It was a very moving experience centralizing our focus on God’s Grace.
As our day came to an end, we spent time with Kevin and Ginny reliving our favorite memories from this week and reflecting on everything we have learned about ourselves and our faith. It has been a truly wonderful week and we are all so blessed to have your support and prayers. It is a bittersweet feeling saying goodbye to
but we are all happy to come home to our families tomorrow! To our friends and family in the States: we’ll be seeing you soon. To our brothers and sisters in Christ in Guatemala : Muchas Gracias y Dios te bendiga. Guatemala
