A day to celebrate!

Plenty of smiles to go around this day. Traditionally in Guatemala, a graduation is a time to celebrate in grand style. The day will be served up with extra helpings of Pomp and Circumstance. Students of the LWT/BI in Quetzaltenango assemble for one large commemorative photo that will mark this passing. In just about an hour, formal processions will take place as every graduate will piously enter a large auditorium and …

Hot, hot, hot- Tecun Uman, San Marcos- Ayutla

We maintain hope that our actions and ministry to the people, sewed seed of an eternal nature. To bring medical services and ministry to 2300 people takes prayer, planning, and more prayer.

The fix is in

After some intensive research, collaboration, and phone calls this problem is a thing of the past. The persistent oil leak had been coming from this oil seal that had de-bonded from the circular recess just behind the crankshaft flange. With replacement parts available, bonding and de-bonding chemicals available, and special tools, this job takes maybe half a day. This job, on the field, in Guatemala…………..well that’s another story.

Shocking News!!!!

After 25 years the electrical system of the Mercy Wings International hangar is in dire need of some repairs and upgrades. Flickering lights, popping circuit breakers, shocking faucets, and smoking wires, have gotten our attention. Here in Guatemala, it is typical to use less than sufficient gauge wire to support an ever modified and increasing electrical load. Several estimates were ordered, with the most reasonable cost for the project being …

Is it 1, 2, or 3 ?

Four days earlier Robin sits in the oppressive heat, and swarming bees, of Tecun Uman, a border town located at a remote and congested crossing into Mexico. There she works, taking vital signs for a medical outreach that treated 2300 people in need.
