March 18: We left Spokane and had safe travels to Atlanta. We are all checked into our hotel for the night. We rise early for breakfast and back to the airport to check-in for our next flight to Belize. We will be arriving in Belize close to 11:30am where we will meet our bus and go have pizza for lunch. Then we will continue our journey to Belize/Guatemala border and on to Poptun where we will be staying close to ICAP Adventist school.

March 23: Greetings All from Guatemala. Sorry there has not been a posted update. We were not able to get the internet going until today. We all arrived safely at ICAP near Poptun Thursday night. We worked on the church all day Friday and got a few layers of brick up. We had a wonderful Sabbath and visited two churches we previously built. Then we had an afternoon tour of ICAP from Stan Bechtel and learned the history of how iCAP had started. We have been truly Blessed from Pastor Moises Ramirez evening worships and Pastor Wendy's morning devotionals. Sunday was a day filled with hard work and they youth and adults conquered a mighty stack of bricks and the church is almost half done.
Monday morning has started with the glorious sunrise and another busy day. We will be working to approximately noon. Then a lunch of local tortillas, beans and rice. We will then get to go shopping in the town of Poptun for a few hours for a break. Tomorrow will be another full day of work on the church.
God has given us several miracles along the way. The people of Guatemala are so loving and so happy we are here. There will be a Pathfinder Camporee here on April 2 after we leave and they are expecting 4,000 here. They are so thankful for the church that is being built. It will be used in the future for Pastors meetings, women's meetings, training and more future Pathfinder events.
I will try to post photos tomorrow. We send our love to all of our families.
