Dear family, friends and coworkers back home,

As we write to you from this beautiful setting on Lake Attitlan, we are in awe of our great God and His many blessings!  The people of Guatemala are so loving, kind and gracious.  We have experienced unity and joy amongst our team which includes, medical and non-medical volunteers from Wisconsin, medical students from Guatemala and believers from the local church in San Lucas Toliman.  God has given us all good health, stamina and safety, as well as, some amazing times of worship and devotions with our brothers and sisters in Christ in Guatemala.  There have been some long, tiring days at the medical clinic, but it has been totally worth it when you see the smiles, hugs, tears, laughs, prayers being offered, and physical needs being met, but most importantly, hearts being softened by God's Word and lives being changed by the love of Christ!

As we have experienced this time in Guatemala and have seen how God is working in the lives of the people here, we are once again reminded that the Lord is not limited by time or space.  While we have come to serve the people of San Lucas Toliman, in many ways we have received more than we have given.  The people of the local church are truly following the example of Jesus Christ in serving (Philippians 2: 3-8), by showing humility and thinking of others before themselves.  God is great!
                                                                                                                                          Looking forward to seeing you all soon,
Love Doug & Cindy
