We absolutely love having short term mission teams come serve along side of us here at Eagles Nest. This past week we have been so blessed by an amazing High School team from Bloomington/Normal, Illinois. They have done so much in helping us get the school ready for the new school year that begins next week here.

One of the things we have discovered is that teams that come really want to know more about the culture here in Guatemala and how they do life on a daily basis. So, today we took this team to the home of one of the families who work with us here at Eagles Nest so they could experience a meal Guatemalan style and experience their lives first hand.

We started it off with a ride in a tuk tuk to the families home.


With a short walk the rest of the way...


We arrived at the home..


They washed their hands before..


Giving tortilla making a try...





After that they were seated at their table (and left the cooking to the experts)...


 They prayed in Spanish and enjoyed their meal...




Served by an adorable wait staff...


Thank you so much Cornerstone- what you have done has made a difference and we are so grateful for each and every one of you!

Wonderful...I couldn't believe that you call the taxi there tuk tuk...that is the same name that is used for taxi's in Thailand. The vehicle almost looks the same as well.

Blessings,

Love it! When we were in El Salvador, I tried making tortillas too. Yeah. Everyone else did fine...they took the tortilla out of my hand, re-did it and then put it back in my hand. I will not be making tortillas anytime soon. :)

Hey!

Your blog is neat! I got referred to it by your son Keegan. I am his RA at ONU. This is something I want to develop of my own. I am graduating and getting married this summer then leaving to do mission work in Cambodia for two years.

Over the past half a year I have been getting into photography and would love to do some documentary photography when we are over there. I have fears on how it will be and if I actually will be able to make it into something interesting.

Your blog is very encouraging. I would love some advice on blogging and photography in the context of missions. Let me know ifmyoumwould be willing to talk over email or something like that.

Be blessed,
Jordan
