I hope you all enjoyed a blessed Lord's Day. What a refreshing way to start the week, meditating on God's word and fellowshipping with other believers. We need each other! So much the more as we see these last days upon us.
Friday we all went to the Seminary with Daniel, and the children and I did school while he taught his classes. Then we all ran errands and did grocery shopping together - a rare treat! All our business in town took all day, and by the time we got home everybody was exhausted.
It was still too early to go to bed, so we had a bite to eat, then some read books, some colored, some played...
...and some just couldn't last another hour.
Poor children! It was a long, busy day.
On Friday we also "chanced" to meet up with a very nice family from Pennsylvania. They have come down to Guatemala for a family missions trip. They seem to be getting along bravely by themselves, visiting different areas of the country using the bus system.
They accepted our invitation to visit our church on the Lord's Day, and we had a good time of fellowship around God's Word, and later around the table for lunch. Does that look like a crowd, or what? With our six children, and their six children (they have three more that are married), we did make a large, lively group. What fun!
Daniel arranged to transport them to the bus station this week, and they will travel to the airport in the capitol, from whence they will fly home. What a sweet blessing it is to have met these sweet believers, and to be able to help them in some small way. It is amazing how when strangers meet and find one another to be believers in Jesus, they don't regard one another as such "strangers".
May God bless you in a special way this week!
