Why i love Guatemala #1

i have to give credit to my brother in law from Washington state credit for the idea...sorry guys my imagination gets used up by my kids at school and my kids at home! for instance Coleman and i found that he starts laughing really really hard when we Kung Fu in the shower...in answer to your question why not? my bro in law started a series of blogs entitled Why I love the Pacific Northwest and i have to say some of it is pretty funny, socks and sandals that sort of thing! Here is the address if you are bored with my blog and want something different: http://www.raisingebenezer.wordpress.com/

Why i love Guatemala #1--------Campaign Promises better be kept

The United States could take a lesson from this third world country. When i was in Guatemala this summer i was staying with amazing friends who are also missionaries ( Hey Brandon and Jenny) we were caught in traffic that didn't move for a while, i think two days. i was on my way to see another set of amazing missionary friends (Hey Danny and Daph). Apparently the newly elected president had make campaign promises to give the farmers fertilizer for their farms...seems easy enough but he reneged on the promise and the farmers got together and used their equipment and trucks to block major roadways all over the country...yes all over the country resulting in a two day traffic jam. I was worried i wouldn't get to see my friends or make it home. Needless to say i made it home without incident but after i arrived at home the farmers decided to block traffic again because not all of the fertilizer had been delivered. Eventually it all was worked out
