I can’t believe I’m actually typing this…but we’re back in the U.S. and home safely, thanks be to God! We got in about 6pm and after about an hour in customs, we all said our tearful goodbyes and headed our separate ways. Even though some of us have only known each other a week, the intensity of this shared experience has created incredibly close bonds. We will never forget each other.
During our reflection last night, one of the missionaries shared that although our time in Guatemala is coming to a close, our ‘mission’ is just beginning. We have all come home different people and we look forward to living what we experienced.
Thank you to everyone who prayed for us! We couldn’t have gotten through this week without your prayers.
Thank you also to John Sacco for the generous donations of Magnificats! We used them every morning and evening for group prayer. And for those not fluent in Spanish, they served as an aid for mass. They were such a blessing!
Finally, thank you also to Guatemala and the beautiful people who call it home. We can never thank you enough for sharing your lives with us this week. You will remain in our hearts always.
Ojalá que nos vemos el proximio año!
