Home Sweet Home!

After two and a half days at camp, our team has returned to our Guatemalan home with our gracious hosts. We are excited to be home and rest, but we are also missing all of our precious campers. God truly showed up in amazing ways, just as we expected, and we give Him all the praise. We received as many or more blessings than we gave, and we are witnesses of a renewed hope for the children at Casita Adonai.

Monday, we arrived at camp and had our first service. We partnered with the Guatemalan team from Iglesia Adonai. We were amazed at the talents and abilities God has blessed this team with, and we were extremely privileged to join with them in ministry. We proceeded to have our dance, sports, swimming, and human video/drama classes. The campers loved these classes, and we really enjoyed sharing our talents with them.

Tuesday, our team found that we had started to form strong relationships with our groups, and everyone jumped in to make the day beautiful. Our service was split between the boys and the girls, and God revealed himself to many of the students in ways that we could never have imagined. Gracias a Dios!
























Today, we left camp with our students and traveled back to Casita Adonai. There, the other students at Casita Adonai welcomed our team and the campers back to school. We were able to talk with some of the parents and share with them how valuable their child is in God's eyes. The parents were touched by our words, and we were excited to see God begin to move in the lives of these families. God has truly been with us throughout our entire journey so far, and we are blessed by his presence in Guatemala.







This week, we were able to see many campers and one teacher receive Christ for the first time. We ask that you remember us as we say goodbye to our friends tomorrow and thank them for letting us be a part of their week. Please continue to pray for health and strength as we complete our work projects and build relationships.
