Safe Travel

Well, we made it! It is sunny and warm here in beautiful downtown Guatemala City. Our flight down proceeded without incident. All the bags went through without any being overweight and they sailed through customs in Guatemala without anyone opening a single bag. So thanks for your prayers. One of our bags did not make it all the way - I'm sure it is in the capable hands of the Continental baggage handling service. It is one we don't need until later in the week so we are praying it will catch up with us.

We are staying in a missions house in Guatemala City tonight and then will get on the road at 5:30 in the morning for the 6 hour drive up to Chisec. We are praying for good weather (this is the rainy season after all) so we can see the beautiful country side and the drivers don't have a tough day. For now we are relaxing from the long day of travelling and preparing to start service. The Guatemalans and El Salvadorans who will travel with us are here so they are working with the teams they will be helping in order to learn the program and gets the students acclimated to hearing Spanish. Don't worry - we are going to bed early tonight so we will get everyone a little caught up on their sleep.

Thanks for your support and prayers. Everyone is excited to finally be here and be so close to getting to work. Pray that this level of enthusiasm will continue. Here are a couple pictures from today: students at the layouve in Houston, the Childrens team practicing one of their songs, and Medical talking through their strategy for the first town. Next update we will get some of the students to share their experiences.

    Tim and team, Thanks for the update. Isn't it great that God has it all under control? He knew the medical bag wouldn't arrive with you. I wonder what God has in store for each of you? Be stretched and make the most of every opportunity God gives you to grow. Thinking of all of you...
