Last day in Guatemala City
Our last day in Guatemala. Attended church service at El Camino. The church has a great ministry to deaf people – around 30 or so were in attendance - and so the lively worship songs were ‘signed’ using American Sign Language. The church treated us to lunch at Pizza Hut, next door, before we returned to deliver training to 30 people from the church. Encouragingly, one of the church Elders who was attending, was keen to volunteer for all the interactive stuff and all the delegates were very enthusiastic, asking loads of questions, and joining in with the practical activities. In fact the whole training session demonstrated being an inclusive church, because we had a double translation of English, translated into Spanish and also into sign language. Also Philippa, who is totally blind, interacted with deaf and physically disabled people and at the end of the training it was like we were all long-lost friends, with hugs all round.
