Greetings from Guatemala! We have reached the hot season in our part of the world. We have had many days in a row of 100+ degrees. April and May are typically the hottest months so we have a little ways to go before we get some relief.
Our Bible studies are steady right now. During the month of April we had ten Bible studies in four villages. One week we had four in the same week. It keeps us busy around here. We are currently in Nearar on Sundays, Tunuco Arriba on Wednesdays, Muyurco on Thursdays, and Lagunetas every other Saturday. David did some visiting with Bro. Nahum (a pastor from Honduras) in a village near the Guatemala/ Honduras border. Bro. Nahum has returned to do a Bible study there. David also helped Noe (Ag partner from Honduras) with some agriculture training in the village of Churischan. We had a busy month but it was productive.
In addition to ministry we had a busy month of celebrations. We started the month off with Easter. Mid-month we celebrated Ben's third birthday with a Lightning McQueen themed day. We finished off the month with a trip to the El Salvador beach to celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary. We work hard but we also play hard. And, we celebrate everything big!
We will continue with our Bible studies in the month of May and ask that you keep us in your prayers as we travel and teach in the different areas each week. We spend a lot of time on the mountain roads going back and forth. Pray for God's protection over us as we travel. Pray that we would be received well and that God's love would shine through us in all we say and do.
