After a day of hectic travel, a missed and a nearly missed connection, we (retreat volunteers) are all safe and sound in Guatemala City, Guatemala at the beautiful Grand Tikal Futura Hotel. It is amazing how quickly you begin to know your traveling companions. We are so eager to learn about each other that the airplane, hallways, bathrooms, customs and the taxi are all a buzz with chatter. It is beautiful how God is already orchestrating friendships and connections that will only deepen as the week progresses. We are excited and ready, albeit a little tired, to jump into training for our ministry. Watch out toes, here we come!
