three day! i can't believe that its only been three days! Guatemala city is one of the most beautiful places on earth!  i have been in the gehtto for the past two days, there is so much despair but then you walk by the school and all you can hear is the laughing and screaming of the little kids!  The first day we walked around the gehtto, then we went to the school and the kids just jumped all over you asked you to pick them up and then again and again.  We playing fotbal in the street drew with the little ones and just were human jungle gyms. Yesterday we saw a casket being carried by six men. It could have been one of the kids family members. It's just crazy to see what these kids live with on a day to day basis.  Tonight we went up to the "lookout" it was so awesome you could see all of Guatemala!  
Being here really opens your eye to what is really important in life. Like trusting COMPLETELY in God b/c he will provide!!!  I have seen that when you give it all to God how he rewards you! All you really have to do is pray and believe and God does the rest!  I don't think i can ever go back to living the same life i was when i know there are kids that have nothing....
