Immediately following devotions, we departed from the house and went to meet George Leger, who has a ministry called Only a Child. He mentors and supports young men and helps them to succeed by reminding them how important and loved they are, and making sure they stay focused in their studies. He felt called to come to
After the wood shop, we went to the cemetery and dump in
After we went to the dump, we came back for lunch- we had an authentic Guatemalan meal. Homemade guacamole, beans, rice, and tortillas. The Guatemalan missionaries had lunch with us at the house, and we had great conversations with them. It has been a blessing getting to know them! After some down time after lunch, we left mid-afternoon to go on house visits. We talked to a mother of elementary school aged children, and also her niece and mother. The boys had some medical problems, and she said that even though she needed to work, she wanted to wait until her boys were well enough. They all told us their favorite Bible passage and what it meant to them, and we also shared some verses with them. After we prayed for them, we visted another home. One of the things that touched my heart was when a mom was telling us through tears how overjoyed and thankful she was that her daughter is doing so well in school. She is almost done with high school, and wants to study to become a doctor. We prayed for her, as well as for her daughter, and for another mom and daughter who were there. We said goodbye, thanked them for allowing us to come into their home to talk and pray with them, and then left to come back to the house for dinner.
We had a relaxing evening, and are ready for the day tomorrow. We feel so blessed to be here, and we're thankful for your prayers and support. May God bless you!
