Guatemala Challenge

Challenge day in Panajachel, Guatemala...


It is lunch time and as we came to sit down, Jean, very brave and confident in his Spanish speaking skills, saidÑ ¨Perro, por favor¨. For those of you that is not familiar with the language... he ordered a ¨plate of dog meat¨ for us!!! The poor waitress´ face - PRICELESS!!!! 

In this first couple of hours of our challenge the new Pink team  (Jean, Jansie and Luiza) has taken pictures of nearly 70 tuk-tuks,10 different nationalities and 3 soccer fields.

We have seen the volcano and made a human tower in a public market, while many Guatemalans stared at us - hah, as if we are crazy (I mean, common!)!

Driving down the mountain on the back of a pick-up truck, we marveled at God´s creation, oh so many waterfalls...

We went to the butterfly park and met three strangers, named Pedro, in the beautiful streets of this town, next to lake Atitlan, surrounded by volcanoes!

What a privilege!


Following Jesus is fun, it is a daily adventure, marked with grace, love and indescribable joy!

This is a life like no other!!!

I heard Him say, "Oh darling, let us be adventurers." And from behind the walls of ordinariness my heart cried out in a surrendered cheer "Yes Lord. here I come!"
