Today is our 4th anniversary of our arrival in Guatemala. It has been an eventful 4 years with many more to come, God willing. Continue to pray with us for the Guatemalan people. We have seen many changes in the country since we first began coming on mission trips. But, as is seen all over the world, people still need the Lord. That's why we came...that's why we are still here.

Jerry Shumake, aka "Mr. Shu", has been a family friend since I was in Junior High. (We won't discuss how many years that has been!) He and his wife have "adopted" us and Centennial Camp and we had the pleasure of visiting with him while we were in Decatur. We missed seeing Terry, his wife, but you may can catch her if you visit them at their business, Shumake's Furniture!

We had a great month visiting churches, seeing all our doctors (we're healthy for another year) and attending the missions conference at First Bible Church in Decatur, Alabama. Then we spent a week in Big Sandy, Texas, in training before returning. It was amazing what had been accomplished in the four months I had been gone! The bathrooms are almost finished, just lacking the wall tile and toilets. A road has been cut to the cabins at the top of the mountain (everyone that had to tote brick, sand, gravel and water up the mountain will be happy to see this!) and Johnny's truck makes it up there fine! Check below to see pictures of some of the changes!
Not all of the road is this flat, Johnny did have to use 4WD for one steep part, but this sure beats climbling 500 ft. straight up! Especially if you are carrying a load!
The bathrooms and the tienda at the end of the building. Teams for the summer of 2009 will be working on the second floor of this building, making an office and salon or meeting room.
I forgot to mention the wall built to enclose one of the parking areas. When finished, it will be capped with brick to dress it up.
To God be the Glory!!
