Update November 2019

Hi to All Our Friends,
 
Thank you for taking the time to read our update.


What does Guatemala City look like?

Here is a great photo looking towards the west. We live in the dark part of the photo, near the volcano. Of course, there is much more city to the left and to the right of this picture.  Approximately 4 million people live in the area. The city has no highways. 

We travel on one major East and West commercial road and one major street going North and South. There are hardly any parking spaces anywhere. The rush hour starts at 3 pm and ends about 9:30 pm.  The average speed in a car during the evening rush hour runs about 8 mph, with motorcycles driving in between cars on both sides.  I love the photo.

We just took a trip to Piedra Ancha, 
El Progreso / Guatemala

Our motive was to visit our coordinator up there, visit the children, give them coloring books, crayons and some sandals. It was very moving experience like always.

We appreciate you being part of Mike Black Ministries.
