The next stop was in the village of Muyurco.

Before ending the day they also made a visit to the Baptist church in Chiquimula to encourage the pastor there. We are hoping that one day the church there would come alongside us and help us spread the gospel to the villages where we are working.
That evening we had Dominos pizza delivered to our house and the team joined us for supper. After eating we had a time of praise and worship, devotion, and prayer. We ended the evening by playing a game of Phase 10.
getting ready for our team time on Tuesday evening
On Wednesday morning they headed out for another day of visiting. Their first stop was in the village of Lagunetas.
Next up was the village of Churischan. The man and women in the photo above are believers and are our contacts there. They are very open, warm, and friendly to us but have yet to give us an open door to begin doing a Bible study in their home. Would you join us in praying for that to happen?

Cruz giving the team a "high five" as they passed by while hiking on a trail to make a visit. That boy is a mess!

That evening we had supper at the hotel restaurant and then everyone came over to our house for the evening. I baked a chocolate cake and made a pot of coffee. We played Phase 10 and had the best time laughing around the table.
Phase 10 with new friends. I loved these laid back evenings hanging out with the team! My heart was encouraged in so many ways just by the fellowship I enjoyed with them around my table.

our team on our last night together
After our team sharing/ prayer time we ended the night with more Phase 10 and watching Game 4 of the NBA finals at our mission house in Guatemala City. What a fun way to end a fun week.
We are excited about the new partnership that we are forming with LifePark. They will be sending their first team down this fall. We look forward to partnering with them and the good things the Lord is going to do through all of us working together.
