After some long days the team slept in. As we were getting up we heard the town rocking with a parade just outside the hotel. After the parade, we hit a late breakfast and helped set up for the dedication ceremony. At 2PM a 3-hour service began. We understood very little, but it was great to be part of the celebration.
After 50 years of work, there is a New Testament printed in the Ixil language. Any way you look at it, that is pretty cool.
