Mrs. Diana teaching the Chorti children in Tunuco Arriba
pray for her as she prepares and teaches each Wednesday morning
me with Mrs. Diana in Tunuco Arriba
I love getting to work alongside her. She is a precious friend and mentor!
We got home in the afternoon just in time to make a pot of coffee, catch my breath, and then begin school with Cruz. This will be our normal Wednesday routine over the next few months.
While eating supper David got a call from one of our Bible study members from Porto Suelo. His wife was sick and needed to get to the hospital. He finished eating and set out to the village to get her. Their house is a little over an hour away. It was right at dark when he left which made me very nervous for him to be out on the mountain roads after dark. He made it back into Chiquimula and got them to the hospital. She was admitted and they are running tests to see what is wrong with her. She is still in the hospital today. She has a lung infection and is also pregnant. Would you pray for her? Her name is Jesus. We call her Chus.
Chus is the lady in red pictured here with some of her children.
Thursday morning was a normal homeschool day. Afterwards we ate lunch, rested a bit, and then headed out to our weekly afternoon Bible study. We normally meet in Muyurco on Thursday afternoons. This week we met in the neighboring village of Porto Suelo in the home of an elderly couple who recently accepted Christ. Our group came together and encouraged them and loved on them. We sang songs, read scriptures, and had a time of prayer. David did a great job teaching the Roman Road scriptures. It was a great time of working together as the body of Christ. Pray for this couple- Javier and Delia. Pray for us and our Bible study group as we help disciple them.
The hikes are not too bad when you have some amazingly beautiful views to look at along the way.
headed back down to the car when we were done
Like all Thursday evenings we went out to eat after we returned back to town. It is our weekly outing as a family. We chose to eat at the mall food court so I could pick up some groceries when we were done. Why? Because we have company coming! We will travel into Guatemala City today after school to pick up some friends who are flying down to see us. We are looking forward to a fun week with them. It will be busy but I am certain it will include lots of laughter and good times. And, that's just what these tired souls need.
