We Have Arrived

I do not have much time to write, but I can say that we have arrived and we are safe and sound. The trip was great. We were greeted by 20 to 40 members of the Nueva Jerusalem congregation when we arrived at the airport. The drove us to Villa Caneles, and along the way I learned lots of names. I also learned that the red octangonal shaped signs at intersections that say ALTO apparently mean GO unless a police officer is around, and then it means, slow down slightly. Yellow lines in the center of the highway apparently mean pass.

Villa Canales is more of what I would call a suburban area of Guatemala City. The buildings thinned out a bit, but it is part of a continuous populated area. We went to the church last night and met lots more of the most friendly folk! They are all full of humor and joy. We met in a room named for Chapel by the Sea and saw photos of lots of our members on past visits. Today promises to be busy. We will have a meeting at the church this morning, and VBS tonight.
