On the way to the house from the airport, our driver suddenly pulled off the road and asked us if we´d like to see a view of the lake. "Of course!" We walked up to the overlook, and as each person caught a view of the lake, framed by volcanoes, you could hear them gasp one after another. We couldn´t believe this amazing locale would be home for the next two weeks! (We´re actually staying in the little village you see at the foot of the volcano in this picture)
We´re now settled in and looking forward to our first day of ministry. This afternoon, we´ll be visiting with new families in the church to greet and pray with them. Later in the evening, we´ll be leading a good portion of the worship service.
I am happy to report that the entire team is in good health and good spirits. Even 25 hours of travel didn´t wipe the smiles off our faces. Thank you for your support and prayers.
Keep checking back to get team updates and pictures!
ps - God has even been answering our prayers for the weather - we didn´t get a drop the whole four hours we drove with our luggage strapped to the roof, but as soon as we got settled in to take naps, the skies opened up and poured! Today is beautiful as well! (Thanks, Joy!)
