The Richmond family from DC, were down for a few weeks. We introduced them to different folks who could share about their different ministries in Guatemala. They were able to explore Monterrico at the coast, climb Volcano Pacaya, play with the Foote kids in Santiago, zip-line through the rain forest, study a week or two at the language school, attend several birthday parties, volunteer at Casita Benjamin and many other activities.
So how do we know the Richmonds? I just love to see how the Lord puts these things together.
In 1992,at the recommendation of Northwest Bible Church mission pastor, Karen travels down to Bolivia to see what missions is all about. We fell in love with her and have appreciated her friendship through the years. Gary and I flew up to her wedding in Dallas, 1993.
Fast Forward. Karen's mentor from College days, wants to minister in Guatemala so, Karen introduces us to Sheri and Kevin. In 2009 Kevin and Shari bring their 4 kids with them to Guatemala and minister with the Footes out at the lake. In 2010 both Shari's family and Karen's family come to Guatemala to hold optical clinics out at the lake and also take Spanish classes.
It gets better....
Shari introduces us to the Richmonds, so they were able to have a good Guatemala Experience here while studying Spanish at the same time.
Recently, we helped to coordinate and host a group of young people (mainly those in David's Spanish class) from Heritage School in Fredericksburg, Texas on a 10 day
Mission Exposure Adventure trip.
Glenn traveled with the team for 10 solid days as they had a glimpse of different ministries here in Guatemala.
The Team ministered in Casita Benjamín.
They also traveled out to Lake Atitlán and heard about Bible Translation with the Foote family, visited a local city jail here in Guatemala City and visited the City Dump.
Thank you Heritage School for your ministry here in Guatemala. We trust you were able to sense God's presence, fall in love with the Guatemalans and walk away with a deeper walk with the Lord.
