Where I stayed
We have made it to Guatemala! Thanks everyone for all of your thoughts and prayers--all of the flights and connections were very smooth and extremely uneventful! Just the way that we like them to be! After we landed in Atlanta this morning we had just enough time to grab and coffee and saunter through Atlanta airport in time to board our next flight. Interestingly, as we were in line waiting to board the flight, we started talking to a girl in line next to us....turns out she is a college student who was flying to Guatemala as part of school...she is in OT school. That was sort of cool.
I was slightly concerned about making it through the Guatemala city airport and customs with 2 bags full of donations (in the past this hasnīt always been so easy!)....but they waved us on through! Yippee!!
Tonight we connect with Betty, who will be our director, guide, translator...extraordinaire for the week, and tomorrow we go to church in Guatemala City, and then head off to buy groceries for the week and start in at the orphanage. Looking forward to a great week. Thanks again for all of your prayers and thoughts. We wouldnīt be able to do this without all of that....and truly feels like many more are with us when we know that people are thinking of us and praying for us.
