These are the beautiful women of Nabaj proudly displaying their new business. This is a new experience for them as they develop into small business owners and their families become sustained on their God given talents. David and I have the privilege of walking them through the development of their business and teaching them to recognize this , the fruit of their labor and most importantly their talent, as the work of the Lord .
Candles being made by the women. It is a group effort and everyone contributes.
David spending a day with these ladies teaching them biblical and practical principles of small bussiness.
This is a display that the women made to store the candles before shipping them to markets here in Guatemala and your homes.
Our friends, Matt, Beth and little Eli were able to travel and see the ladies recieve their first income from their hard work. It was wonderful to see their reaction when they realized that not only had they made a profit but they had also paid for their equipment and now own it....free and clear. They sounded like birds chirping..everyone talking at once
Then we were off to the zoo for spotting ( no pun intended) really cool animals. We love the zoo here. It is so clean and the animals are really healthy.
Next, we traveled to a birthday party where we cooked meat over coals and had rice with cheese.
And lastly, we traveled to Panajachel. We jumped in a boat and headed across the lake for a 30 min ride. This is one of my favorite things to do.
The lake is very dangerous to swim in but completely beautiful to look at and to ride across. You head
straight for a volcano and then.....
Thanks for a great day Matt and Beth. Also, we couldn't have found our way without the kids friend Dan. This was a really special day.
Enjoying the breeze from inside the boat.
