After a day of riding in taxis with the window down, my contacts are coated in diesel fumes. I am very thankful for my new hometown in Quetzal, the air is much cleaner there. I thought it would be easier to find things in Guate, but it is not. If you do find what you are looking for it is a whole lot more expensive than it should be and a lot poorer quality.
We thought the City would be similar to the States, until Jimmy saw a heard of goats crossing a 4 lane road. A man was selling fresh milk for 5 queztals...as fresh as you can get.
While we were in Guate we did get started on the paperwork for our residence visas.
We also were able to get an extension on Jimmy’s truck. Please pray that we get our residence visas soon, so that we do not have to leave the country for 3 days every 3 months. That really eats up a lot of time and money. As soon as we get our visas we can bring in Jimmy’s truck tax free. We still will have to pay to register it, but that will save us several thousand dollars.
Getting the extension... doesn’t this look official!
Thank you for praying for us. We definitely sense God’s presence. Things are difficult sometimes while we are adapting, but our Heavenly Father is always faithful to encourage us. Everyday we are growing closer to each other and to Him.
