K'ekchi' Annual Convention

This week we have been attending the K'ekchi' Annual Convention in Sayaxche.  It began on Wednesday morning and ended on Thursday at lunch.  There were meetings during the day, and we had a great worship service together Wednesday night.  In addition to a lot of business matters, during these meetings they elect officers for the new year, appoint their national missionaries, they look at the previous years goals to see how they did, and set goals for the following year.  Despite a lot of problems that took place within the Association this past year they still accomplished a lot.  For example, there were 530 new believers, there were 500 baptisms, they started 5 new missions, and one mission was organized into a church.   They elected a new Associational President, Pedro Choc Caz, and added a sixth national missionary, Abilino (former Radio Berea worker).   Thanks to those of you who prayed for these meetings.  They were long, but good.  We are excited to see what the Lord is going to do in 2011!  I had good intentions of taking pictures, but as you can see I didn't do so well.
