On Friday our day was packed with unpacking the supplies we brought from 2W, setting up the laptops we donated, greeting women, and holding babies! We brought 4 suitcases packed with supplies for the school and children’s home and 4 new computers. We spent time setting up the computers with parental controls and showing them how to use the computers. We also took new books to the library in the school and spent time speaking English to the kids in the school.
The women’s conference kicked off and we welcomed 90 women. They worshiped and learned about the Lord and had amazing fellowship. Six of us were responsible for all 50 kids while the Mamas went to the women’s conference. Man was that an adventure! These kids have so much energy! We took them to the open-air covered sports arena on the grounds and played soccer (futbol) and tag. We ended the night with a traditional Guatemalan meal together with the women and let off lanterns over the mountain and lit sparklers!! It was the perfect ending to a perfect day!
Saturday, was the final day of the women’s conference. We continued with more messages, workshops, imonies, & worship. Again, we helped with the children and allowed the Mamas to have a much needed/well deserved break. We played futbol & basketball with the big kids, and painted the little girls nails.
Today is our final day at Eagle’s Nest. We will attend their church and then start our journey down to Pana, 15 minutes and 2,000 feet below Eagle’s Nest, for some zip lining and a boat tour on Lake Atitlan.
We are very sad to leave our new friends and the Eagles Nest family.
