We really enjoyed the church meeting in La Esperanza tonight. Daniel preached on "The Last Words of Jesus" (see Mark 16:15). We have a new neighbor who moved in next door earlier this week, and she came with one of her daughters. Ruth (the mother) has many needs; we hope to be a blessing to her, and that she will come to know Christ soon.
There are visitors - missionaries - in our home this week and next. Bro. Bob Stevenson calls himself a carpenter for Christ, and he is helping us with our roof situation. He and Nalani are such a sweet couple, and we enjoy having them with us! Everyone gets up early, works all day, and sleeps well at night.
For our family, May is a big month for birthdays. The first May birthday is this Friday. I'll be 34. That's thirty-four. Four and thirty. Just trying to get used to it.
Otherwise, there is not much going on, except that the sun is coming up earlier and EARLIER. I mean, it's light outside at 5:30 a.m. (So my husband tells me. I do not know this first hand.) We don't do Daylight Savings Time here in Guatemala, so it gets dark around 6:30 p.m.
Mother's Day is coming up! Be sure you do something special to honor your mother, and if you are a mom, I pray that you have a sweet day in the Lord on Sunday. Blessings to you all!
