Today the rest of the team arrived safely and despite a missing bag (long story), we got out of Guatemala City and within 90 minutes were entering the gates at Casa Angelina.
The advance team spent Thursday at the orphanage and had lots of wonderful stories of the goings on here due to the efforts of What Matters Ministries and Missions. The stories of the kids are heartbreaking but the results of this first class effort at repairing them physically, emotionally, and spiritually can only be a God thing. We spent an hour or so getting a quick tour and a lot of hugs. Agua Viva is in dialogue with Casa Angelina as a site for a future installation.
We’ll stop back to continue the conversation on our way back to Guate City next Friday.
For now, we’re preparing for tomorrow’s efforts on the new system installation at Iglesia Eben Ezer. Dinner at Hotel del Campo is complete and Jim’s inspirational devotional about Purity and a proposal for a new common definition of the word was well received.
