Guatemala Relief Trip July 11-20-2014
Day seven  7-18-14

Not much different than the other days. Up early and and headed down the mountains for my last day at the church worksite in San Pablo. Pastors Santiago and Juan and I went around the town looking at a few projects that seemed to take precedence over other projects. We have a limited amount of resources at this time so we had to be very cautious on our commitments. We came up with 5 projects that fir our budget. Two for widows and three for families with multiple siblings. All very needy but again there are many in need. Maybe the Lord willing we can get back soon and continue to help some other families and churches. The bummer about this part of the work is as you go from place to place looking you bring this feeling of hope. In reality we can only do so much for so few. I know this puts the pastors in a bad situation because they will have so many people saying what about me.

We waited all day for materials to be delivered so the workers could continue work on the support columns. All the rebar is set and ready for concrete. We just need sand and rocks. The material finally showed up at almost dark so the work will continue in the morning without our presence. We packed up and headed for San Marcos. A very productive week for CI and myself.
