Utz. It is one three letter word that has opened up more and more communication between our mission group and the children of San Antonio. Communication is everything. In a region where their first language isn’t Spanish, but rather a Myan dialect. Often times speaking with adults and young children necessitates more than one interpreter. So needless to say communication is key.
The beauty of having an all loving and all powerful God is that this process seems to work seamlessly despite the cultural divide. It is absolutely amazing that we have brothers and sisters here. And that God has provided a perfect mechanism by which we can both relate and and express the love that He has given us. THE GOSPEL.
As we begin this week, my hope and prayer is that this week we are intentional and purposeful in preaching the Gospel. And beyond that that we are thorough in letting everyone know that that is our purpose.
Please pray for our group. This week as we are working here there are celebrations happening leading up to Easter. Guatemala mostly Catholic, and thus most people come to these celebrations and ask for forgiveness and then continue lives filled with sin. Overcoming this norm presents a difficult task. Although most people prefers to be religious and believe in a God, their belief system is a form of catholic and other Mayan belief systems combined.
We serve a perfect God and we know that he will guide us. Thank you everyone for the prayers and support of Mission Firefly. We could not be here without you all.
God is Love
