|Joy and Myself taking a break|
Lunch: Lo Mein, tortillas, vanilla oreo cookies. Bonded with the kids today. Sang songs to each other and tossed coffee beans back and forth. They have a lot of coffee bean plants. The little Guatemalan girls had me write down my name. They also tried to get my phone number! I drew pictures of things and they would tell me the Spanish (bananas and monkey are some pictures I drew).

1. Is Guatemala really in poverty? Or does it just seem like that compared to the States?
2. The people seem happy/content... are they?
3. They don't work/go to school... if they need something they just trade with their neighbor... why can't we live like this?
4. I envy the Guatemalan lifestyle - I just want to enjoy God's creation and His people...
