Wilson Community Church hits the ground running!
Wilson Community Church team arrived in Guatemala this past Friday and hit the ground running!
On Sunday the team was able to attend the first Quinceañera held for girls that attend our church in the community of Gerona. The four girls were able to dress in prom dresses, with hair and makeup complete. Although we thought this was not a big deal, bringing the dresses, the make-up, and the hair accessories for the girls, we were taken aback by their overwhelming sense of gratitude and their excitement. Many moms expressed that this was a gift from God as they would have not been able to give justice to this momentous occasion without the team’s help. The ceremony was beautiful and a learning experience even to those of us that are familiar with this celebration.
On Monday the team tookth graders to Pana for the night. It was a lot of fun to watch them outside of the school. The children got to swim, play, shop, and talk. Being able to listen and love on this group of kids meant a lot to our team. During the boy’s talk all four accepted Christ! Our prayer is that God will continue to use them all for his glory
