Hello Everyone! 
This is Bill Burrows. Steve and the team have been having electricity issues this week, so updates have been tough to come by. Steve sent several pictures and a few details in the small window of time that he had. Look for them on the dates below.

See updates for Week 1 below this entire update in "FOLLOW ALONG WITH THE MISSION TEAM IN GUATEMALA! UPDATED!" to learn what God did in our first week.

Laura Slaughter and Hilda Lopez arrived safely and went straight to playing, storying, and eating!

Please Pray and Engage

Please continue to engage with us by asking God to heal the normal health issues related to going to a Central American country and for a safe return home by the team.
