Howard County Signs Covenant

The six folks from Howard County had a great time here in Guatemala.  They were here to begin a three-year covenant with the Boca Costa Maya Quiche Presbytery and were met with love, hugs, and a little conjunctivitis (i.e. "pink eye").  Thankfully I was the one that contracted it and not any of them AND they had along with them two nurses (Kris and Becky) who got me some medicine and told me how to use it.  Now it's just a matter of getting the drops in my eyes and not on my cheeks, because I don't think it really works if you only put it on your face.  But, alas, I digress.  

What's important here is the great work that God is doing through the Howard County church and its members.  We sat in hours and hours of the Presbytery meeting that were far from exciting (whew, was it long!).  In the end though, we got to see the joy and excitement in their faces when the covenant was signed and the partnership had officially begun.
