El Dia Numero Dos en Guatemala...Que Bueno!!
(Day Two in Gautemala, how great!!)
Our day was welcomed with our first morning waking up in our Guatemala home! We all ate breakfast together preparing to visit Manuel and his family's (the other family that lives in the other part of the house) church, for what would turn out to be one of the most Beautiful contemporary services rooted in Christ's love that we could only have imagined. It was incredibly touching time to experience the Guatemalan culture and the love and the "Amens!" of God's people in his church...from the outpour of excitement during our "Hi-Lows" during dinner, each of us seemed to have a most wonderful take-away from service that touched on Matthew 25:14-30...the elder (The Elders preach more than the Pastors here) mentioned that we all have different talents that help bring unity and functionality to the church body...that "Tu responsibilidad es delante del Dios"...our responsibility is before Christ Jesus our Savior who so willingly gives us his gift of GRACE & LOVE.
This relaxing Sunday together ended with us spending time in a local park with Manuel and his kids playing soccer in the pouring rain of Guatemala's VERY rainy season that we've just embarked on...it was AWESOME!!! We returned home soaked with joy in time for a sweet pasta dinner and a debriefing on the cool things to come in our day tomorrow when we first get to meet the Guatemalan interns and the poeple we will be serving and praying for through the week. Amongst rehearsing our Faith lessons (for both kids & adults) and goofing off getting to know each other more closely, we are still learning that M&M's and our fave junk food are not readily available and more about the precious resource called WATER that we so conveniently take for granted...but this culture all in time!!
