– We had our field trip to the United Nations Park. It went really smoothly. The kids got to go on a scavenger hunt, go through an obstacle course, and go to a petting zoo.
-We had our Thanksgiving program and my class shared an acrostic poem of things they were thankful for. We then had a Thanksgiving lunch with all the kids and some of the parents.
-During our Thanksgiving break, I was able to go to Panajachel to spend some time with good friends
– I was also able to go on an encouraging woman’s retreat.
Life in Guatemala
This month has been filled with blessings. It started with a women’s retreat outside of the city. It was a very relaxing, encouraging, and uplifting event. A group from Texas came to share their stories and testimonies and to encourage our work as missionaries. I was very blessed through them.
The next big event was our field trip. We had a great time of learning and fun. I am so thankful for the parents who agreed to come as chaperones. It would not have worked as smoothly without them.
We then spent some time preparing for our Thanksgiving lunch and program. Each elementary class had a part in the program. My class shared an acrostic poem with the things they were thankful for. After the program we shared in a Thanksgiving lunch all together. This is one of my favorite events.
For Thanksgiving this year, I was able to travel to Lake Atitlan in Panajachel. I went with two other wonderful ladies and we were able to enjoy some rest and relaxation and some early Christmas Shopping.
Time has been going so fast. This month is almost over already and December and our Christmas celebrations are getting started. I have been very thankful for the goodness of the Lord.

I am a girl and have black hair. I have learned many bible verses this year. Please pray that I would have good days at school.
I love to sing and play piano. I also like to do cartwheels. One of the verses I learned this year was John 8:32. “Then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.” Please pray for my brother Jordi so he does not have to drink a certain milk. Also that my grandpa would come back to our family.
One of our students had to go back to the States suddenly for a family emergency. Please pray for this student and her family.
– For good health
– For good time management
– For the students and me as we continue the school year
– For wisdom and discernment
– For one of my students and her family. They had to make an emergency trip to the USA for a family emergency.
– God continues to provide in all things.
– God has continued to provide safety and provision
– God is good all the time.
