Just another day in the jungle…

…or in a Mayan village. Pictures of children working at trades, artisans perfecting their craft, curious smiles of children, and people… young and old.

Beautiful.

Today is day #2 in the remote villages of the Petén Jungle of northern Guatemala… or at least that was the schedule. Our purpose today is to install and to build something here, we will have opportunity for outreach and something special for the children… soccer balls, Frisbees, coloring books, colors, and gospel comic books in Spanish. And to top it off... a fun frozen treat.

I have no clue at this writing what the villages we work in will look like, but I loved these pictures I found to share with you in the meantime. As you enjoy the scenes of Mayan village life below, please remember our team and hold us in prayer.
