I'm almost there.... 100 Followers :)  Thanks yall!!!!  I've gotta prize... but first let me tell you about this...

It's been one full week since I have been home.  It has been really hard trying to come to terms with the abundant blessings we have here in the US.  I went thinking I was going to be blessing others by building 2 houses and 2 stoves.  I was mistaken.  By the end of the first day, I was the one who was blessed beyond measure, and to see how much the Guatemalans work, smile, love and care for one another.... indescribable.

They say "Buenos dias" to EVERYONE that passes by in the morning.  Then "Buenos tardes" to EVERYONE who passes in the afternoon.  Then at night, "Buenos noches" is said each time you pass someone.  And they look you in the eye! 

What would our life be like if we did that to everyone who passed us by?

Coloring pages after we shared about Jesus being the Good Shepherd.

Pedro (dad) and Ronnie (son) who we built a house for.  Mom and sisters are not pictured.  They lost their house in the May mudslides.

Emerson and I.  We built this stove for him and his mother.  LOVE THIS KID!!
