Day 4 – Posted by Rick

Pilots, insurance guys, truck drivers , craftsmen, business men and farmers, a pastor and a missionary.  A diverse group….all “Hermanos in Christo” (brothers in Christ) gathered far from home to serve.  Even when a day is planned out….we all know better.

Proverbs 19:21 NIV

Many are the plans in a person’s heart,
but it is the Lord ‘s purpose that prevails.

So, we are to build the first ever Bethel Ministries chicken coop.

With constant tweaking….we were just “winging” it….pun intended.   It was awesome!
A field trip to the hardware store and the lumberyard was a highlight!
Obviously, NO OSHA regulations at that lumber yard. Fresh cut full dimension lumber here!


This project was teamwork at its finest.   Lots of gatoraid and Pollo Campero to fuel the work.  Good stuff.

The completed project is but a prototype, but I think it will serve Viviana well.
Thursday we will deliver the 50 chickens, which are ready to lay.  She will have income from the eggs very soon.  Huevos ( eggs)  are a staple in the diet of the Guatemalan people.
Tomorrow, we are off to a Mayan village to build yet another chicken coop…this time for Maria and her children.
(Did anybody write down any blueprints from today??)

Dios te bendiga to Aiviana, Alahandro, Annania, and…’s name
