Today, our group went to a church in Villa Nueva. The church was kind of outside (under a huge tent) and small but it definitely was filled up with people. Something that happened today that I want to remember is the church theme. The church was set up as the world cup, and the preacher preached off of that theme, talking about the discipline athletes have and how we as Christians must also be disciplined and follow our trainer.
I am thankful for this day to be able to go to the church and see the differences, and after church we went out to lunch and that was fun I got to have some nice conversations.
Something that sort of surprised me in the church was that they sang a few of the same songs as we do in the U.S. just in a different language.
Today I had good interactions with everyone in the youth group and mission leaders, and also some Guatemalan people at the church. They were all so friendly and welcoming. Tomorrow I am looking forward to start our first work day and see how God is working with us throughout the day.
