Sunday, May 25!
It’s so great to be here in Guatemala! We arrived on Friday but it already feels like we’ve been here much longer than that. Yesterday morning we did a scavenger hunt with some of the younger Rinos and ran all over Buena Vista. It was a great way to get to know the boys that were on our team and to see them in their element in the community. I was challenged to really use my Spanish to communicate with them… and it seems like I didn’t come across as a crazy gringo! The different groups that were running all over the village were very interactive with their local neighbors and with local tiendas (stores). And when they play, they play to win! So their competitive nature really came out yesterday. Yesterday afternoon we spent some time with the boys playing ultimate frisbee. Again, this was another great way to connect with the boys and to strengthen or establish relationships with these young men. I’m so excited for the opportunity to be here and participate in this life changing ministry. Thank you for your prayers and support!
