Hola! It’s great to be in Antigua, Guatemala again!
Our first group got back into Salisbury around 1:30-2:00am on Sunday morning, and our second group was pulling out of Salisbury by 4:00am!
While it’s been a whirlwind of travel for me, one of the things that I love about my job is the spending time with the kids of this congregation. Week one was undoubtedly one of the greatest experiences I’ve ever had, and this week is shaping up to be another great one! If you didn’t know it, the 35 teenagers we have on these two trips to Guatemala are amazing young people, with a great deal of depth and an eagerness to live out their faith even as they grow in that very faith. Today I realized just how much I love the relational aspect of working with teenagers, and it not only makes my job the best job in the world (sorry everyone else), but it also keeps me energized and hopeful – regardless of how little sleep I’m functioning on.
