Guatemala Day 5: Culture and Travels

Tuesday morning we got ready to go on our planned visits, but just as we were heading out the door, one of the Mennonite pastors stopped by for a visit. In Guatemala, when you have a visitor, you take the time to sit and visit with them–you do not tell them you have to leave. Saying, “I had a visitor,” is an acceptable excuse for being late for something. Galen and Phyllis made up some coffee and visited with the pastor a while. After we packed up for our return to Guatemala City, we went to visit Bezaleel, a Mennonite boarding school secondary grades and vocational training. We also were able to visit the home of another missionary family that is just heading back to the states this week. They live a bit further out in the country from the Groffs and it was nice to see other options for housing. As they also have four children, we had a nice time talking about life with children in Guatemala.IMG_20131001_112635097IMG_20131001_111802040

Back in the city five hours later, we spent the night at Casa Emaús, a guest house associated with the Semilla Anabaptist Seminary.
