An unforgettable week

"This week" how can we describe this week?, it was stressful, overwhelming, inspiring, tired, fun  and unpredictable... a mix of everything.
On Sunday a man from church who works for a foundation called fh (food for the hungry) here in Guatemala, ask my mom if we could help him to translate from English to Spanish at a workshop. A man from Cambodia was coming to give this workshop to train  persons from Peru, Bolivia, Republica Dominican, Nicaragua and obviously Guatemala, there was ten people and his problem was that at last minuet the translator that they already had, she had some emergency and she could not be there. So we said yes. Anna took Tuesday and Wednesday and I did Thursday and Friday .
ohh so where to begin, they gave us a Little previews so that we could now what was it about and everything but it. when Anna first show up there and started, it was not what we thought. it was way way more difficult than what they told us . they where terms that we didn´t understood at all , its kind of crazy that they thought we could do a good job, or just thinking that we where capable of translating such  a difficult workshop. but now that it's over we always know that the Lord used us to do what we could and be a good help to the leader who was in charge .That first day that Anna went she came home crying because come on! you feel bad that you can't do what they ask you to do , so we talk to the person that ask us to do the job and told him that we were not able to do it and that we where sorry but we just couldn't. He obviously understood because  yeah it was so hard , as I said in the beginning it was super stressful and overwhelming , but then they put us to do different things and we where able to have fun a little bit + help a lot + we know that this experience will help us in the end at some point in your lives , we may not know now but it will in the future :) so we are so thankful for that
so by the end of the week we felt happy and relieved  that this whole thing was over and that the weekend was here , ohh my, we had the greatest weekend ever !!
 on Saturday night we had a prayer service at church , it was such a blessing. we felt the presence of the Lord moving in us + an amazing night of fellowship.
on Sunday we had a beautiful service at church, the worship was beautiful too , we feel so blessed to be part of this church and this community , we love this church family of ours.

 and after church was Maco´s birthday, so he invited the whole youth group for lunch at his house. we had a blast, we love all this people and we are so thankful for them.
and finally to end it!! we went to leani's house and watch "The Host" twice , yes you are right twice, we just had to, it's such a cool and amazing movie.
SO we are very thankful for this week , we will remember it forever
xoxo a+a
