By the end of Bible School more than 100 children had come. Edson did a recap of the Bible story and invited them to come back tomorrow.  The children here don’t have the discipline we see in most areas, I assume it’s because of the lack of Gospel. “Everyone did what was right in their on eyes.” Judges 17:6. We were blessed with a few clouds yesterday, but by 5am today it was already 87 degrees. Looks to be a hot and muggy day…

Flexibility is a must on the mission field. We came expecting to put the roof on the church. Edson had been calling daily to check on the progress last week. He was assured that the building would be ready by today, but it wasn’t.

Today, a skilled mason came to help us finish the block work.

The team, being flexible, started filling the wheel barrows with dirt and leveling the floor area.

At 11am, we took a break to distribute some food, then we set the makeshift pavilion up in order to hold more children. Today we are expecting 200 in Bible School and with the temperatures at 110 in the Summer with this high humidity, shade is important!

Ameba’s Gone?

Not so fast—still feeling as if things aren’t quite right yet. I went to the pharmacy for another dose of the killer med. I figured that I, being twice the side of most Guatemalans, couldn’t be hurt by taking a few more.
It’s another hot but blessed day here in paradise! Thanks for your prayers and support.

Lewis
