Our past week

Moving Day!! We had a lot of help from John and Jan Lohrenz moving the big things and lots of boxes.

Lunch on moving day. The national is Samuel Caen who is the administrator of Centennial Camp. He is the head of the committee over the Camp.

With a team from Mentor, OH, we worked with a Bible church on children's ministries. We had 48 kids the first day and increased to over 70 by Thursday! It was a busy and hectic week!

The upper floor is the construction project that was done by the team also. The pastor and family lives on the first floor (7 kids) and the second floor will be children's ministries. They have 40 kids every Sunday and no place to meet!

Most of the Ohio team. Macario and Victoria (far left) are the pastor and his wife.

We are on our way back to Panajachel after sending the team off on their plane. We will be at the Camp for 3 days before returning to the capital to fly out to the States. Keep our travel in your prayers. Also, at the Camp, only the bed is set up - everything else is in boxes. Pray we find all we need before our flight.

First night at the Camp

Last night we spent our first night at Centennial Camp! This morning was the coldest morning I have spent since I went camping with my family as a young girl! We noticed that it has been very cold in the States and we weren't that cold, but you have heat in your houses, we didn't! Anyway, other than some water pump problems and a leak in a wall, we spent a chilly but enjoyable first night. We had a fire laid out for this morning and with a hot cup of coffee, it was bearable. We will finish moving stuff today and get the house almost put together before returning to Pana tomorrow for our work team's arrival. Thank you for your prayers for us - we survived the first night!
