Mission Group From Wilmington, NC

My first group!  I'm so proud!  We had a great time.  It was a small but mighty group, with Rix, the pastor, Jonathan, the gigante (giant, ie 6'7"), and Elisita, the grandma and ex-Guatemalteca.  Selena, Victor, Joe and I all started the trip together.  By the time it was all said and done, it was just Selena and I.  And Martin took over for Victor when his pink eye worsened (all is well now, Gracias a Dios!).  This trip started only four days after my arrival in Cantel on Saturday, Oct 11th and ended on the following Saturday.  

In this short time, not only did we create friendships with each other but also with our Guatemalan brothers and sisters. You'll see all the places we visited below, the iglesia in Santa Fe, where we built two water filters and made homeopathic salves; the colonia, where we saw composting toilets in use (well, not REALLY "in use", but you know what I mean) and visited homes built by DIACONIA; the finca in San Felipe, where they harvest coffee, bananas and anything else that will make them money; the Instituto de Biblia, where Scott works where we painted bathrooms; and Agua Calientes, where we had a lovely lunch and learned more about the education and economics of Guatemala.  

As a reward, we went to Antigua for our last night and day, and you'll see a few pics of that too.  For more, check out Mission Wilmington.
