Guatemala Is Working Faster Than Expected!

The work project is progressing well – faster than Pastor Jacobo had anticipated. Thus far, the team has completely cleared and cleaned up 05 Guatemalathe site where the building will be. They are now digging the footers, and about about 3/4 of the way done with that. He expects that they will pour the footers in the next couple days if weather holds and work continues to progress so well. In addition, the drainage ditches around the Nuevo Reto (which means “New Challenge”) facility are being improved so that water will not overflow into the facility. Weather has been mostly nice, but on Friday afternoon and again that night, we had rain. The Sunday services were an outstanding experience for the team. They did a full presentation including puppets, drama and two testimonies on Sunday morning, after which David Spindler also shared.  In the late afternoon, the team sang some songs as part of the service celebrating 22 years of Nuevo Reto’s ministry to orphans.  All the team members are really enjoying the presence of the Nuevo Reto children, and I know it will not be easy for them to say good-bye to them when the time comes. The children, likewise, are really soaking up the love and attention the team is giving them.
