We just got back from a visit with another one of our Casa del Alfarero church in a city called Coban. It is about four hours from Chiquimula, and it is higher in the mountains making the climate cooler and the vegetation greener. We went with our pastor to celebrate the church's four year anniversary. I played the drums and Brandi sang in the worship band. We had a great time worshiping and singing with the people in the church. We played Saturday night and Sunday morning. Last time we went, we stayed in the pastor's house their in Coban. It was a very pretty house and big so we had our own room and two beds for the kids and Brandi and me. But this time we have Uriah also so we were thinking it was going to be a little rough and crowded with the whole family, but we wanted to go anyway. Well the church in Coban paid for us to stay in a hotel this time. It was one of the most gorgeous hotels I have seen in Guatemala! It had it's antique look about it but was very comfortable, and the room had three beds. Levi and Mary Kathleen got to have their own bed and Uriah slept in a pack-n-play, and Brandi and I got our own bed. The hotel had hot water also, so we took hot showers. It got so cool that night that we were actually cold with no A/C! Awesome! So we ended up having a great time and slept very comfortably. So why say all this...I thought it was a great opportunity to praise God and thank Him for His goodness and gifts that we so do not deserve! He never ceases to amaze me and surprise us with these kind of things. And we have done nothing to deserve these things...it is just the goodness and mercies of the Lord that He pours out on us all the time! So thank you God for such an enjoyable and relaxing time in Coban where we were also privileged with the opportunity to lead worship with Your people there! God is GREAT!!!
