Go FOURth

Today was the fourth day of ministry for us, which sadly means it is our last day of ministry.  We were able to go visit a school in Nearar and spend time sharing bible stories, passing out bags of beans and water, and playing games with the children.  Unfortunately, our team was short three members because of sickness, but everyone stepped up and did a great job ministering to the children and teachers anyway.

In the afternoon we were able to join a small church for their worship service and were allowed to teach and sing for them.  Tate and I taught on 1 Samuel 17 and the story of David and goliath for the adults.  Veronica led a devotion from Matthew 6:25-34 on not worrying for the women as well!  Liz, Sean, and Hope took the children and played games with them and taught a bible story from Luke 18.

Overall, we’ve had an amazing time here in Guatemala.  God has been so good to us!  We’ve made awesome friendships, have been able to love on hundreds of children, and have had some great house visits that allowed us to encourage and pray for families.  It’s been great to watch our students step out of their comfort zones and serve in faith.  Everyone on the team has done an awesome job facing adversity, uncomfortable/awkward situations, and a tough language barrier.

This evening we debriefed a bit and talked about all the amazing things we’ve been able to be a part of.  Right now we are finishing a game of phase 10 that we started on the first night (I’m winning in case you were wondering).  Thank you all for your prayers.  Please continue to pray for our team members that aren’t feeling well and for safe travels tomorrow back to the city as well as safe travels home on Saturday!
