The Lord is good and the days are long!

"Sing to the Lord a new song; for He has done wonderful things." Psalm 98:1

So sorry it has been so long since the last post. Apparently my blog was down but Jenny's was working. So I switched to blogger beta (I felt a little pressured there) and maybe things will be ok now.

We are in our apartment! I'll post some pictures soon. This is an amazing country. beautiful, beautiful, and just wonderful. We have just about unpacked all our things and found a place for them. Oh, and if you touch the fridge without shoes on, you get shocked. Pretty badly. We're working on that.

So we have been in Guatemala now for over 2 weeks. We just got to the guest house in Xela (where we will be living) on Monday and moved in tuesday night. We have internet access here (wireless - so strange) but that only works when the power is on. Which has been for only about 3 hours during the day.

Ok. Here's a few much needed looks at our new home country:

A few Mayan girls near a waterfall...which you can't see.

This is Lago de Atitlan, a caldera lake. The team stayed there for a night. Yes, that's a volcano :-) They make Deacon roar.

This is Comitancillo, where we stayed for 3 nights. The Casa is there and many of the sister churches are near there.

Jenny took this from the truck. Imagine a whole valley like this. Beautiful.

Ok. Just wanted to give you all a look at our new home. We love you all and hopefully will be able to blog with more regularity now. We start language school next week! Pray for us. We are not too scared, but we are excited too. It's raining and cold here now. Oh, man, rain sounds great under a tin roof. Wow. More tomorrow.
