Rambling around Guatemala...

It’s been a while since we posted anything. So many things have happened in the last two weeks. Here is the short version.

Juliet, Angel, Anna Kate, Liz, Parker, Lee & Carmen

We graduated from language school. We are not finished; we have a long way to go but we are at the end of our time in Antigua, Guatemala. We will continue with tutors a few times a week for as long as it takes….probably the rest of our lives.

The Turkey - beautiful & delicious!! Todd is an awesome cook!

My Southern Pecan Pie with homemade crust! YUM!

We celebrated Thanksgiving with our dear friends, the Ericksons before leaving Antigua. We enjoyed all the classics, Turkey, sweet potato casserole, mashed potatoes, green beans, cornbread dressing, gravy, cranberry sauce, pecan pie (I made my first pie crust from scratch) & pumpkin pie. It was a divine feast. We are so grateful to our Lord for friends and community which enrich our life.
The view of Panajachel, Lake Atitlan and the volcano as you come down the mountain.

Our new home in Panajachel.

Cozy fireplace and living room.

We moved to our new home in Panajachel. We will be living here and beginning our work at Eagle’s Nest. The Lord has been so generous in blessing us with a beautiful and peaceful new home.

Breakfast with the eSwicks in our dining room. Love the tropical view.

Enjoying a day on the lake with Max & Riley.

Our very dear friends, the Everswicks came to visit us and help us get settled in our new home. We had so much fun moving furniture, unpacking crates, and exploring Pana. They were a great encouragement and blessing to our whole family.
Our huge tree with our homemade ornaments!

We put up our new (artificial) Christmas tree. We don’t have any ornaments yet, so the kids made angels, snowflakes, stars and snowmen. We added candy canes and a big star on top. It looks great!

May the Lord bless and keep you during this season of Joy!
