Today was our first Sunday in Panajachel, Guatemala. Usually in Indiana Sunday’s involved getting up in the morning and going to church. At 7:00 a.m. this morning we were woken up by music coming from a local church down the street. They like to crank up the volume down here. So even if your not in the building you get to here what’s going on:) The Porch has a worship gathering on Sundays but because we want to offer something different in the area it doesn’t start until 4:00 in the afternoon. So we spent the morning doing other things.
After an unsuccessful house hunting adventure the kids and Amber sat down for a bit. Today we checked on a couple leads but couldn’t find the places people told us about.
Here are some of the people who attend the porch gathering. There was a time of worship, then Lloyd gave us a discussion question to talk about with someone in the room we didn’t know. The question was “What is your opinion of Politics?”. These people are giving their answers to that question. Then Lloyd gave a message and we sang a closing song.
Old School buses from the states are converted in to what are called Chicken buses. They are used for public transportation both human and livestock apparently:) Most buses are painted more colorful than this. But this shows that they really are old school buses.
Here is a closer shot of what a tuk tuk looks like. You can see there is some interesting artwork that sits right outside the porch. It’s a rather large sculpture made out of iron.
