Leaving for Guatemala in less than 8 hours!


Everyone is in a mad dash to get their carryons packed and catch some sleep before we depart at 3am! You read that right, 3 am! It's going to be a long travel day. We'll depart Colfax at 3am, drive to Raleigh, fly to Miami at 6:50am and arrive in Guatemala at 1 in the afternoon. After we collect ALL of our luggage (because you guys have prayed that it all arrives:) we'll load a bus and drive 3-4 hours to Eagle's Nest Children's Home.


We appreciate your prayers as the first of 50 people go to Guatemala. Our second week begins July 5th. Specific requests for this first BIG team are unity, good health, safety, and that God blesses our time with kids in churches, schools, the community and at Eagle's Nest.

We hope to update you daily but we're not quite sure how the internet access will be. Thanks for your prayers:)

  7. Has anyone heard that they safely arrived in Guatemala and Eagle's Nest? I'm assuming "no news is good news," but would like to hear it from someone. Thanks.
    To the team--our thoughts and prayers are with you.

  8. Yes, they made it in Saturday evening about 8:00 Guatemala time. I am the team leader for the Asheboro team that leaves this Saturday July 5th and I have been e-mailing with Ron the missionary that is helping at the Orphanage now and he said that is when they got there. He said that it was a stormy night so I am sure they were a little nervous :) I told him we were all here praying for them with their travels!

  9. I heard from Lisa and she said things were ok, it was a little colder than then usual especially at night. They had little internet access so she's going to try and e-mail more later if she can.
