Esquipulas, Guatemala


Hey, y'all :) Here we are in Galen and Phyllis Groff's courtyard before we left in the morning. Ali is doing great, thank God. She ate a good dinner and breakfast and only feels a little sick going around all the curves. We did a kind of leisurely day since we wanted to wait until the morning to cross the border into Honduras.

We left the Groff's around 9am. We are very grateful for their hospitality. We've stopped at the town of Esquipulas, which is about 6 miles from the border. We had time to relax and walk around town in the afternoon.

This is the first place we've taken the time to be "tourists"
and see sights in person rather than through a truck window!

This is the Catholic church at the square in Esquipulas, famous for its carved figure of the "Black Christ".

We look forward to crossing the border tomorrow morning at Aguas Caliente and arriving at La Finca on Wednesday, God willing. Please continue praying for the process at the border. We never know how long it will take or what all we may need to do. We thank God for his provision of strength and grace so far and believe he will carry us through the rest of the journey. May you all trust in him and believe he will carry you through the rest of your jouney. God bless and good night!

Hi Horst fammily,

What impressive bloggers you are. My heart rejoices with every picture and comment that you send. Will and I continue to pray for you daily. Give Honduras some kind of greeting from the Schofields.

Love you guys, Karen
