As we leave Chanco, we leave with wonderful memories and new excitement for the village.
The medical and dental clinics were steadily busy throughout the day. Many patients returned with family members to receive care, and still many new faces entered the clinic doors.
The Mission Team explored more of Chanco today, and we were welcomed into homes with smiles and hospitality. Many of us shared testimony and stories, and it is clear that the face of God shines in this community. Families asked us to pray for their health and well-being, for continued blessings in God’s grace, and for the continued work of this Mission to spread the love of Christ in their community.
One leader of the community named Francisco has been especially important for the Mission here. It was difficult for everyone to tell him and our new friends goodbye. As we left his home after a short visit, he carefully selected ripe bananas to give to us.
We all agree that fresh Guatemalan bananas exceed all previous experiences with bananas…THEY ARE SO GOOD!
Grace and peace from Chanco,
