March 10 – 9:30 PM
We have arrived at Eagle’s Nest!!
Today was a full travel day. We got to the airport at 3:30 AM and arrived at Eagle’s Nest at 7:00 PM. After a flight from Austin to Atlanta to Guatemala, we boarded a school bus and drove through the mountains and countryside to the town of Solola.
This week we will be painting and cleaning up the grounds among whatever other jobs we may be asked to do. Each day we will work until lunch then have a time to break before we hang out with all the kiddos. We will also be leading morning devotional/skits in the school. Several afternoons, kids from the village will come up to attend an after school program. They are fed spiritually and physically with food and a sermon. For some, this is their only meal of the week. We will also do crafts and play with these kids.
Expect unique updates for each day, although I don’t know when they will be published. I will include pictures of our activities as well as the time the post was written so you can stay up to date!
– safety for us, the staff, and kids
– energy and restful sleep
– open minds to Gods plan for our time here
