Guatemala Tuesday

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.

  2. Hey Scot – thanks for sharing your trip photos. While many believers are entirely focused on American politics (wasteoftime… *cough *cough), your updates are a welcome on where our time and efforts should be going – simply loving people and sharing God’s grace.
