Solamente en Guatemala (Only in Guatemala)
Our mouths were filled with laughter,
our tongues with songs of joy.
Then it was said among the nations,
“The LORD has done great things for them”. Psalm 126:2
Only in Guatemala: is Bobby Byrd a giant, you can ride for free on the outside of the bus, the white lines in the road are the motorcycle lanes, there is no Fox News, you sweep your house in the morning and then again before you go to bed, you hand the dryer vent out the window to keep the lent out of the laundry room, it takes 5 trips to the bank to open up and account, it takes 3 months to buy a car because they only ship once a month, it takes 3 men to fill up your gas tank, do you wait in line to eat at KFC, does a 20 minute drive take 2 hours if you travel at the wrong time, does the alarm go off during a test drive and the whole engine shuts down and you have to walk 3 blocks back to the car shop, and only in Guatemala is the sky so absolutely blue that it is breath taking, the mountains so beautiful that they are full of God’s majesty, is the fruit so delicious and fresh, and to Guatemala we have been called because Jesus wants to wipe away the sadness that shows through the eyes of the people and fill their hearts with joy.
Thank you Father for sending us here to do Your work and thank you for bringing laughter to our hearts. We love Guatemala!
Wow, Willene! Sounds like a dream come true. Some of us are still looking for God’s real purpose in our lives and it’s so exciting to read that you have found yours. I pray for you and Bobby daily. Have a sticker beside my phone at work that says, “when tempted to complain, pray for Willene….”.
Even after all these years and no contact, I love ya lots!
