My first Good Friday/Easter in Guatemala!!
Through the wizardry of social media/Youtube, I was able to participate in Good Friday services with Seattle Community Church in real time - praise God!!
On Good Friday, the children were shown through drama the suffering of our Savior that is able to bring them eternal life - great job by the caregivers!! And on Easter Sunday, we celebrated together through message and song - a lovely duet by one of our caregivers and one of the children!! Please pray for seeds to have been planted!
And the Toque de Queda (state of emergency) continues...
The President announced on Sunday night that restrictions on travel will continue as well as the curfews. Masks are mandatory in public places and anyone caught not wearing a mask could be fined up to $20,000!
Life goes on at Immanuel - the children are continuing to learn and play and after 5 cases of chicken pox, we're enjoying a lull - hopefully no more children will come down with it, but we're prepared if they do. And big milestone for me - I just emailed out our very first newsletter this past Friday! I heard Mailchimp often sends these emails to the junk folder, so please check if you haven't received a newsletter. And also, if you have not received the newsletter at all and would like to, just email me - firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your continued prayers for us! Here are some ongoing prayer requests -
