June Retreat

Our June retreat actually started at the annual meeting of the National Presbyterian Church of Guatemala.  It was an interesting display of church politics, where most of us got bored and a bit frustrated, but could actually see some progress being made in the area of accepting the indigenous culture into the church.  The accommodations were akin to summer camp, which provided a little stroll down memory lane, especially when the plumbing went haywire and started spewing muddy liquid.

After the annual meeting (4 days long), we headed for Lake Atitlan for some much needed down time.  As usual, it was beautiful.  We spent the time hiking, reflecting, and traveling to Santiago to visit the memorial for martyred priest, Stanley Rother, again.  

Our next retreat in July will be our last.  Man, time is flying!
