Weekend Travels

This past weekend we took an overnight trip to visit a few churches and to attend a Pastor's Conference. We left Sunday morning and drove to the community of Xuctzul, which is on the other side of Chisec, where we had morning worship at Iglesia Bautista Monte Transfiguracion. We first visited this area back in April with a Prayer Team. They were such a friendly group of people and we have wanted ever since to return to worship with them. We finally got our chance this past Sunday.

We had a great service and afterwards were able to enjoy a delicious Caldo lunch with the Pastor and his wife.

After eating we drove another hour to the town of Fray de Las Casas. This is where we stayed overnight- Hotel Valle Del Sol. It is just a typical small town Guatemalan place to sleep and shower.
We walked to a local eating place and spent the afternoon drinking coffee and talking. It was nice. That evening we attended services here at Iglesia Bautista Peniel in Las Casas. It was another great service!
We returned there on Monday morning to attend the monthly Pastor's Conference in this region. The McGriff's and the Parker's drove over and joined us for the meeting.
Our work is more with the national missionaries than with the Pastor's, but by attending these monthly meetings we are getting to know many of the Pastor's and enjoying them very much.
This is David with some of the Pastor's. He is sitting by Bro. Juan who is a pastor at La Balsa. We visited his church back in April and spent the rest of the day visiting and prayer walking in other areas with him. He is a lot of fun to work with!
When we broke for lunch we walked next door to the Pastor's house to eat. They fixed us a delicous Caldo lunch with beef, carrots, and guisquil. David, Jane, & Wendall getting ready to eat

This is the Pastor at the church in Las Casas. He asked us to pray for his mother who is sick.
So we had a time of prayer for her before we left

These little boys followed David out to the car when we were leaving

It was a great trip and we just hope that we were as much of an encouragement to them as they all were to us!
