Weekend Update

We actually don't have anything to update which is a nice thing sometimes. We have been working hard for over 2 weeks, and it was nice to be back in town just beginning a restful weekend. We went to worship services with some American friends in the morning and again at the Chichicastenango Iglesia de Cristo in the afternoon. Sheri made it back to town in time for worship this afternoon, so we saw each other there. One of the brothers who is usually pretty no-nonsense came up and asked us when we were going to teach him some English. So we started with "good afternoon, brother" and then, "see you later, brother". He got a pretty good laugh out of that. Then, some of the little boys (ages 6-8) who run around together, came up to Kemmel and asked, "so how are things going for you at the clinic?" Kemmel had to try not to laugh as he gave them a quick ministry update. He also got a peek into one of the little boy's wallets (Roberto) and saw 8 Quetzales in it. Roberto said he has been helping out at his family's market stand and they pay him a little bit. Kemmel asked if he put a 1Quetzal in the offering, and he said, "No--2Quetzales!" Good job. 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Matthew 25:21
Today we catch up on housework and other work projects that have neglected.
