We’re off to the mountains. Praise the Lord the sun is shining for the first time in three days!

After leaving the dorm at 6:30 this morning and a two hour journey the team went right to work. Many church members were there working also and much was accomplished.

Some of the team started working with the steel that would go into the foundation and the wall we are building

Thanks for your prayers.


Sunday, July 4, 2010-We’re on the road again!

We made it to Pollo Campero’s in Coatepque about one hour from the dorm.

It’s been a good trip except parts of the Pan-American Highway are terrible. One van hit a big pot hole and we has two flats and two bent wheels. We were able to fix one tire and beat the wheel back out and use the spare for the other.

Here is the bridge that was washed out a few weeks ago. One lane is now open.

Only one thing is keeping the river back-maybe two-God and gravity.

It is still raining hard in places but we have missed most of it. Perhaps it’s the prayers of the saints.

Thank you!


Saturday, July 3, 2010-FBC Pulaski,TN

A class reunion, seeing friends from the past and spending some precious moments with one dear childhood friend while saying a final adios caused me to be emotionally spent as I packed my bags for Guatemala. My good friend and brother in Christ, Rex McMasters, arrived at my house before 5am on Saturday morning. He was going to taxi me to the airport in Nashville, TN.

I flew to Houston and met the team from Pulaski at the airport in GUA. All went as planned with just a couple of hiccups. All in all it was an uneventful day.

We slept well Saturday night, and after a devotion time we worshiped together at Ely’s church on Sunday morning. Soon we will be on the road to the coast. We will travel in 4 vehicles and pray for a safe journey.

With 21 people and supplies we are heavily loaded. This team consist of two families with their children, some ole timers and some who are experiencing this for the first time. We praise God for the opportunity.

Thanks again for your prayers and support.
