San Marcos

Just a short update on things happening in Guatemala.  Recently the big earthquake shook our country.
It made many people aware that God is in control.  Christians and nonChristians, need to look to Him for our daily protection and need.

Job Fuentes lives in San Jose Cabén, San Marcos.  He and his Dad Isreal are co pastors of our first church.  Job called today to say in the aftermath of the devastation from the earthquake, 200 homes were leveled.  Many of the building in the center of town were destroyed.  He said we would not recognize the town we once lived in.  Large building and hotels will be bulldozed away.  With all the cleanup he said the dust never settles and now many people are getting sick from all the dust.

We are so thankful that none of our members were hurt and their homes are in tact.  God does put his protective hand on the faithful.

All of our pastors need prayer and to keep them looking to Him for their strength and comfort.

We have several pastors in that area who will be able to help those in need.

In San Marco area, Adela and Isreal Fuentes, Azael & Lily Calderon, Job & Eva Fuentes, and Wilma & Leonel Perez, this couple had some damage to their home and their children were traumatized.

Church

We are getting the floor put in the church in Sololá, so this week we had our service in the upstairs hallway.  It was full 80 people.  It was great, our people are very flexible and we had a great time of singing and worship.

God is good and we are looking to see greater things this coming year.

Nehemias is doing better with his preaching and bringing the message down to the level everyone can enjoy and learn from.

Adrianna and Elena 14 yrs old taught the class of the preschoolers.  Janet and our interns Kinsey and Carly take turns teaching the children 5-10.  They all did a great job.The children enjoy playing on the playground before and after church.

We are so thankful for a place to meet and show our love for the Lord.

This week we will have the floor done.
Thank you to all who have support the Lord ministry here in Guatemala.

Just a note about the earthquake.  The shake was strong 7.5 on the rector. There was lots of damage in
San Marco and Quetzaltenago, but we did make the calls and found that the members of our churches in that area we all fine.  We pray for those who did loose their homes and loved ones.

Larry and I had a vacation and also some business and Dr. appointments in the past 2 months, but we are back now and ready to work.
