They will be spending the night in Ayarza.

Our friend Ceci, who is managing everything from Guatemala, sent this link so that you can follow Fr. Miguel’s progress on Facebook. There are pictures from today. A couple of them are videos, so you can get a better idea of the terrain.

Thank you all so much for your prayers and support for Fr. Miguel, Eduardo, and Ignacio. I’ll keep you updated.
