God's country

We are up with the chickens (maybe before the chickens) this morning--of course this always happens when we plan to sleep in until 6:00. But we are enjoying some coffee and FoxNews and Internet surfing. We have plans to get some housecleaning done before going to church and then on to Antigua to help Glenn and Neva move up here to God's country. It's always amusing what people from the cities (the Captial, Antigua and Quetzaltenango) have to say when you tell them you live in Chichicastenango or are moving to Chichicastenango. They can't imagine that anyone in their right mind would want to come here. "It's so remote" "Wow, its so MAYAN out there" or "there is so much idolatry out there". Well, it's a great place to live. The people are hospitable, the chruches are growning, and we don't have the crime rates that you see in the urban areas. Sure we don't have supermarkets or malls or movies or Pizza Hut, but we have people who call to check on us, churches that raise up and train their own preachers and leaders, unlimited fresh produce in the markets and great weather!
So, welcome Glenn and Neva--you're going to love it here!
