A Little Time of Refreshment in Guatemala City

This past weekend we made a trip into Guatemala City.  We left on Friday afternoon when we finished school.  Our first stop when we arrived was at Krispy Kreme.  Their very first store in Guatemala opened back in late January of this year.  We were still in the States then but were very excited that we would be able to visit there when we returned.  This past weekend was our first chance to visit.  We were all a little giddy to get to enjoy one of our favorite treats.  We were not disappointed.

I am sure this will become a regular stop on our trips into the Capital.  We do not get to go often so when we do this stop will give us something else to look forward to .

That evening we attended a graduation celebration for one of our MK's (missionary kids).  

Daniel is a 2018 high school graduate

We enjoyed a great meal and then dessert.  Afterwards we had a time of sharing memories and encouraging words for Daniel.  We then all gathered around him and prayed.    

Daniel will spend his summer working in the States and then will begin college in the fall.  Pray for him as he makes this transition.  Pray also for his parents.  He is the youngest of four and their last one to "leave the nest".  They will be adjusting as well to a life on the mission field for the first time without children. 

We spent the night at our mission house and stayed up until after 1:00 A.M. laughing and sharing stories with the Stones.  On Saturday morning we all went out for a late breakfast together.  It was their 43rd wedding anniversary.  What a treat to get to share a meal with them on their special day.

We then spent the whole rest of the day out running errands.  I had a list of supplies I needed to pick up.  One of those stops was at Save A Lot.  It is one of my favorite stops on every trip into Guatemala City.  We always find products there that we cannot get anywhere else in the country.  Nothing excites me like finding a new food item.   This trip in they had grits and for the first time ever I was able to buy self-rising flour here. Hallelujah!  It's little things like that that keep me going. Save A Lot Guatemala is one of my favorite places.  If you live here and have not been, you need to try it out.

Another stop was at Eskala Mall to get the boys a haircut.  Cruz wanted "fire hair" (bangs that stick up).  He got it and he loves it.  It is probably the shortest his hair has ever been.

We arrived back at our mission house that evening very tired.  We all took a bath and were in the bed early.  The next day was Mother's Day.  I will share about that in my next post.
