Our trip could not have started off any better than it did. Everyone was as full of emotions as a 6 year old on Christmas morning. Happy, nervous, excited, anxious, and everything in between. We arrived at the airport and headed on our way to Guatemala City, Guatemala. Descending from the clouds we could see the bright city lights illuminate the streets. We collected our bags and met our driver Alberto. As we proceeded to leave the airport, Alberto asked us if we had ever been on a roller coaster. We all exclaimed our full approval of our coaster experiences and the joys of such a ride. Not realizing the correlation he told us to hold on. For thirty minutes we flew full-throtle through the city streets. Roller coasters are cool, but our crew agreed nothing compares to the exciting thrill of Alberto’s incredible driving skills. We arrived at the mission house and we were greeted with a warm welcome. Some met familiar faces and others made new friends. Our leader Herman sat all of us down and told us what to expect this week. All I can say is this will be a joy-filled and precious week.
Please pray for the Mission House team and for us that we will be able to give others amble cause to glorify God through Christ by the Holy Spirit.
