The 50th Year Church of Christ Conference Starts!

Today, begins the 50th Anniversary of the Church of Christ Conferences!  It was chosen to be in Chichicastenango this year and the preparation has been going on for several months! I was told that they expect about 10 thousand people each day from all over Guatemala. It is only a few blocks from where I live, so I will check out to see what is going on.

There are lots of activities in the town due to Semana Santa.  I had told someone that this will the be the place to buy honey.  The streets are blocked off to traffic.........so, there are more bees than there are vehicles.

It is amazing the containers that people use for the honey.......soft drink bottles, whiskey and wine bottles and even ones that they use for vinegar.

It is a week that really puts our diabetics over the edge.  During our last clinic in Chuchipaca, I asked all of the diabetics to please be careful this week.  We will see what happens :)
