Next Week's Schedule in Guatemala

I'm heading out early Saturday a.m. for Guatemala once again--this time with a team of 9 others from our church. One of our participants from last year's trip to Cantel, Guatemala had to cancel out at the last minute due to a problem with security clearance from Uncle Sam. We're going to have a busy travel day on Saturday, awakening somewhere before 4:00 a.m. to be at church and load up at 4:30 to head for the airport. We're due in Guatemala City at 2:00 p.m. and rather than spending the night at the seminary as in times past, we're heading westward that same day to San Marcos in order to be present for Sunday services. I thought you might be interested in what our schedule looks like for the week. It's going to be a busy time from early until late every day. Here's what it looks like:
