The President of Guatemala has now started talking about re-opening the country in the coming weeks. With the official count of cases currently at 688 (as of Sunday, May 3) or 37 cases per 1 million people, the President was optimistic in planning an orderly re-opening.
Here at Immanuel, it was a relatively quiet week. Spring is all around in the beautiful flowers (enjoy the pictures!) and there are hints of the rainy season with occasional showers and cloudy days.
This coming Thursday, some of our staff will be visiting an uncle of one of the families that are here. He and his family have stepped up and requested custody of the 3 children of his brother. He has a stable job and home and has been in regular contact with the children. Please pray that this visit may go well and that our staff will make a wise determination and recommendation to the court.
Thank you everyone for continuing to partner with us in this journey!
