I am in Guatemala safe and sound! My team and I arrived to Honduras on Saturday morning and our bus ride into Guatemala and to Puerto Barrios went about as well as a bus ride in a third world country can go. The important thing is that we are here and we are happy and safe. We haven’t started doing ministry yet because the missionaries have been very gracious in allowing us to have this week to allow us to get acclimated and prepared to tell the people of Puerto Barrios about The Father who called me on this journey.
My team is wonderful and I am so blessed to know each and every one of them. We are made up of people from all across the country (and canada) and different walks of life. Our diversity is so fun and another detail that makes it as evident as it is that The Lord knit us together perfectly. We are staying in a happy little green house and I am thankful to say that we have running water and electricity.
The past two days have been such an adventure already. We have been so welcomed and so loved by by our ministry partners. There is not a doubt in my mind that we are where we are supposed to be. Yesterday we went to church with Paul (the missionary) and his wife Hilda. How did we get there? Glad you asked. We took an empty eighteen passenger van and fit twenty three people in it. It was hot and uncomfortable, but so so fun!
In a few days I will be sending you all a list of prayer requests regarding the ministries, but for now please be praying for the work that The Lord is going to do! He is already moving within my team and I know He is going to do big things in and through us in the coming weeks.
Thank you for your prayers! Much love.
