After a little arm twisting, Mark has agreed to blog about the Guatemala Trip- please make him feel welcome!
Nick and I had a wonderful time on our trip to Guatemala. There were 20 people in our group, and our main goals were to minister to the people of Guatemala by building 4 houses and do a medical clinic in 2 mountain villages.
The first picture is of Nick and I trimming the Cement board used on the out side of the house we helped build.
Next is a picture of some of the Kids at the plantation were we built the houses.
Here are a couple of pictures of the beautiful landscape of Guatemala that we enjoyed every day we were there. These pictures do not do justice to the true beauty of this Country that has 5 volcano's.
The next picture is of some of the adorable kids from the village were we did the first medical clinic.
Here is a picture of our whole group on the top of a mountain were Paradise bound is building there own mission base base, so the do not need to rent an old motel. There goal is to be in the new base before the end of the year, God willing.
The next picture is of the house we built:
The last pictures is of the people that worked with Nick and I along with the family that we built the house for. When we dedicated the house to the family, we provided some gifts for every one, then Dan and Harmono Jesus presented the gospel to them. Every one in the family except for the 11 year ld boy on the left accepted Jesus into there hearts and life or re-dedicated there lives to Jesus Christ.
This was so much fun and a real blessing to be able to go on a mission trip like this with my son. These will be memories we will cherish for ever, along with the other 1100 or so pictures that we took.
This guest blogger is done for now until the next time I get roped into it
