Family Visit...

This week that family came to town. While not everyone of the possible 21 members were present - we were ecstatic that each of the (Watkins) siblings' families were represented. In order of birth that would be Kolosey, Watkins, Bandy, Watkins, Watkins... Yea it's sometimes difficult to get it straight in my own mind as well.

As you can imagine, the week was more of show and vaca in Guatemala. So what did we do? as much as we possibly could have. Cultural tours, coffee farms, the backside of Aqua, the beach with volcanic sand, pre-visits to ministry opportunities, museums, ruins, the market and that is pretty much the short list.

This was Nancy in her element with the market tour...

This was one of the fancy museums...

That would be coffee...

Elaine found a friend...

Gringos on parade in Ixmche, Tecpan...

That would be a big bus coming very close to us...

Fresh grilled corn from the roadside BBQ...

Gary and crew are learning to make tortillas...

This is the Jade Factory showroom...

This is obvious... what is not obvious is my sister's knee firmly planted in doggy feces...

Gary and Jordan diggin' the view...

Yea, that's my family. Yea God!

I am thrilled to be apart of this family. One of the greatest blessings in my life. Wish I could have been part of the traveling clan...next time for sure! Hugs, Kris

I went down there to visit my baby brother and his wife, I came home with a changed perspective and renewed gratitude... not so much for the many comforts I enjoy in contrast with the poverty I saw but for the blessing of the opportunity to visit a world so different the my own. I can see why so many "internationals" get to Antigua and decide to stay.
