A great day...

This past Sunday was a very full day of God's blessings. For Nancy and I, it has been often a challenge to keep up with God's momentum. This day was simply a day to celebrate and enjoy the fruits of working here in Guatemala. Starting with the 244 in services that Sunday.

As is the tradition here when a young lady turns 15, there is always the party and grand celebration. This young girl, Nancy, had never been dedicated as a baby. Her parents asked if we could sync these two events together. The family came to celebrate as well. Which was pretty significant as they are either unchurched or hold to Catholic traditions. For lunch, my Nancy and I joined the family in their home for the other party.

One other cool thing here is that as of the time of this photo Nancy was only 2 weeks old in the Lord.

Later that night we were blessed to visit with Edgar and Carmen for dinner with other staff members. They wanted to express the blessings in their lives that God had given them. We all were counted in those blessings. Yea God.

It's a shaker...

Well for those that are keeping up with this blog, today was good. The ground shook and we looked up.

Talking to myself...

This past month I met myself on Facebook. Or should I say a counter part of the same name. Just reading many of his blogs, I can see we are on the same page. I like the way this guy thinks.

Just one example of random thought... Asimo_The_new_missionary?

God has a wonderful sense of humor to reinforce getting His work done. I guess two Michael Watkins are better than one in terms of church planting. He is on FB, has a blog and website - check him out.
