A Day in the life of Danny...

A couple of weeks ago several pastors called Danny and asked if they could meet. Danny said sure, you name the time and place and I will be there. Danny invited me to go with him, I said yes. I thought it would be a great opportunity to show you a little of what Danny does. So here we go....
We walked down to the boat dock around 8 in the morning to wait for a boat, look how beautiful it was I could not resist taking a few pictures. Look at the picture below, here comes the boat.

The boat picked us up in Panajachel and took us to San Juan  were the meeting would be. It was a gorgeous 30 minute boat ride, the sun was shining on the rolling mountains and the water was so crisp and clear.  
Once we got to San Juan we looked for a Tuk-tuk (motorized taxi) you can see it in front of Danny in the picture below (red & white)   We got to the church and knocked on the door but no one was there. Danny said lets just walk down to the Pastors home and see if he is there.  

He was there and the other Pastors were waiting there for us too.  I really enjoyed meeting the Pastors wife and watching her every day to-dos. She was so creative. First she put her coffee out in the sun to dry.

Then she fed her colorful parrot "lorita" 2 tortillas. She then proceeded to hang up her weaving. She is making a woman's typical belt. It was very detailed, she said it takes her several weeks to make one.
I joined the meeting and they asked me to help them by sending an e-mail to a family who will be coming to live in Guatemala very soon.  I was happy to translate this message for them and send it. 

After the meeting they said they had made arrangements for us to eat at a little restaurant run by a lady from their church. Yum, yum Fish was on the menu for everyone, with a side of rice and delicious guacamole.

By this time it was 1:30, Lunch was finished and everyone went their separate ways. It was time for us to go check on the kids, which we had left on the other side of the lake. So we headed back to the boat dock to get on the boat.
