We are enjoying our day off today just taking care of stuff around the house.  Kemmel actually had some errands to run out in Mactzul III on a construction project, as well as meeting with one of our scholarship students.  But he got in a good swim before the rain started. I have been playing chef, whipping up fresh bread and veggies to go with our leftover lasagna and a coffee cake for our afternoon rainy day coffee.  Yum!

Things are pretty quiet around here.  But there have been some recent baptisms in Paxot and Choacaman and one planned for Wednesday at the Chichicastenango church making a total of 11 for June and July.  Yesterday's sermon was a good one about the great commission.  Luis Suy made a great point about not just preaching the word, but also preparing the "soil" by praying specifically for the person you intend to evangelize.  He encouraged us to develop the relationship first and pray for God to remove obstacles from their lives and prepare their hearts to receive the gospel.  Good advice.

Tomorrow we get back to work, but for now we just enjoy some quiet time at home.
