  1. Hey Babe!!! So glad you FINALLY made it!!! It is hard for me too with you not having a cell phone. I would LOVE to hear your voice and hear all about your adventures. But I guess I will have to share you with the youth group and more importantly God as you work to be HIS hands and feet to the people of Guatamala.
    It has been a busy couple of days, but not really doing anything special. I promise no trips to Lolly’s while you are gone. We will save that for when you get back:)
    Take care and be safe — Love you tons!!!!

    • Hey Amis, love and miss you a lot and everyone else. Tell Tyler it is Winter over here but so much more humid and feels trilllions of degrees hotter, Tell Ashlyn I am having a blast working with everyone down here while building houses, but mainly building my relationship with God, one day and this trip has already changed my perspective on faith and has grown a ton!! Anywho you should tell Diego about this sight, Miss and love all of you guys, ps tomorrow is friday!

  4. Hey, Salli,
    Praise the Lord you finally are in Guatemala. It is such a beautiful country. More importantly, the people there are people and children of the Heavenly Father. We pray for safety and health for you and the entire team. May you be bold for the Lord. As I have said before, you will be a blessing, but you too will be blessed.
    Love and prayers,
    Bill and Judy Vlietstra

    Tana from Curves told me to send you a “hello” from her. The boys had to stay home by themselves Friday since you where busy. But they are looking forward to you coming when you are back.

  9. Hi Salli!
    I am so proud of you for going to Guatemala! I know how excited you were and I hope the past few days have been a testimony to the power of our God. You serve with such humility yet joy, that is something so special about you. I cannot wait to hear all your stories-I will have to stop into Culvers soon to catch up hehe 🙂 tell everyone I say hi and I will be praying for your next few days of traveling.

  10. Hey Salli!

    Praying for you as the week is coming to a close- I’m sure everyone is pretty tired at this point. Stay strong to the end girl! I’m so excited you are exactly where you are at 🙂 Praying your eyes would be reopened to the ways God is working around you every day!
