Paperwork in Guatemala

I know this video might seem a little long, but trust me, it’s a lot shorter than the process it talks about!  Many people want to know, “what exactly do you do down there?”  Here’s a perfect example  of one of those things to which I say, “try putting THAT in a newsletter!”

Strange

“We are now living in another country!”  The thought kinda hit me upside the head yesterday.  Missy looked at me like I was crazy.  I mean, we have been here since January and have been planning this for over a year.  But really, we’re living here.  We aren’t just vacationing or visiting here for a […]
