Happy Fourth of July!!

Of course, the 4th of July is not celebrated here - except for the Texas teens staying here in LBN who lit off firecrackers last night about midnight! But we will celebrate today with chicken in Bob Gibson's BBQ sauce (white, of course) and Corn Casserole, made with Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix! All thanks to great friends in the US!

We got moved into Las Buenas Nuevas (LBN) in Panajachel, finally, on Sunday evening. We found they were painting the floors of the house we were to live in, so we have moved all over the compound in search of a place to lay our heads. The cat has adapted surprisingly well. She has moved into three different places in the last week but still purrs when we are around. When we first moved to Guatemala, she stayed under the furniture for 2 weeks, so this is a pleasant change.

Our house here is a Sears catalog house, complete with lap siding, windows with screens that open and ceiling fans. It is all wood and the termites love it! For all the strong rain we had when the rainy season hit, it is hot and dry right now. You can see the volcanos across the lake clearly and sunrise is a gift from God to those who brave the early morning hours! See future postings for pictures of the area. All in all, the move was uneventful and we are pleased to be in the area we are going to be working in, even if we are not in our final resting place.

God bless each of you as you celebrate our nation's independence with your families.

Love in Christ,
