Day 1, July 7,2010

Standard

From 5:50 AM anxiously waiting at Bush airport in Houston Texas, to appreciating the beauty and serenity of Quiche all the way till midnight, our day could not have been more perfect. Our missionary team is so very grateful and appreciative for our safe and smooth arrival, ranging from the flawless flight to Guatemala, to the miraculously speedy and exhilarating journey zigzagging across the gorgeous mountains of Guatemala on wet and slippery roads, but of course all of this was achieved thanks to the many that have devoted their valuable time and effort to pray for us. These words cannot even contain the level of gratitude that we have for you all. We are humbled and comforted by your devote prayers that we hold so dearly to our hearts. Our day was filled with surprising fluidity. We were able to smoothly pack and unpack our action packers, which hold so many of our supplies, our plane ride was without delay, we faced no adversity at Guatemala City, besides getting through Customs, and our 4 hour bus ride to our destination was breathtaking as it carried us up and around mountains that could only remind us of what a beautiful world that our Heavenly Father has blessed us with. We concluded our adventurous but energy consuming day with a delicious dinner at Cafe Martita’s and a heart warming group sharing. Thank you for everything and I can’t  wait to share tomorrow’s experience with you.

P.S. Mom don’t worry about me!  That also goes to all the others that are overly anxious 🙂

Nuestro primer dia en Guatemala

Primero queremos dar gracias a Dios por habernos traído a este lindo país y por todas las personas que han estado en oración desde esta manana en nuestra Parroquia hermana Resurrección. Gracias a Dios  y a ustedes nuestro día fue maravilloso.

Alrededor de las 12 llegamos a la ciudad de Guatemala, fue un aterrizaje un poco turbulento pero llegamos. Después tomamos  el autobús que nos llevaría a Quiche , el viaje fue largo pero gracias a la actitud del grupo el viaje se hizo corto, compartimos comida, risas, un paisaje maravilloso, y por supuesto oración.

Algo que nos llamo mucho la atención es la belleza de este país, como dice la canción de Ángeles  “no sé si el cielo bajo o la iglesia subió” cuando subíamos y bajábamos las montañas pudimos entender la letra de esta canción, porque sentíamos que nosotros éramos la iglesia que subía a el cielo y miramos la grandeza de Dios en la naturaleza.   

Queremos decirles a todas nuestras familias y amigos que llegamos a nuestro destino con bien, sigan haciendo oración por nosotros y por nuestros hermanos del Quiche. Que Diosito los bendiga y estaremos en contacto desde estas lindas tierras.
