Two weekends ago, some of the students from the language school went to a small village outside of Siguatepeque called Cerro Azul. We were accompanying the Wolfe family to the house of one of the teacher’s family where they lead a Bible study every other Sunday. This Sunday, we left a little earlier so we could have lunch together and then, those of us that wanted could hike to a waterfall nearby. The journey up the mountain was a bumpy ride on dirt roads. When it rains, I imagine that it is very difficult to leave or enter through these step, narrow and winding roads. But, the scenery was breathtaking!!
The trail up the mountain was very slick and very narrow, but it was a fun adventure. Especially when we got to look out and see the view! Wow, isn’t God amazing?!
The waterfall was beautiful…..and also very cold, though at that point I was more than willing to get a little wet! The hike was definitely worth it to see this 🙂
The Bible study after was such a sweet time of community. Mercedes, on of the teachers, shared the testimony of her family and how God had worked powerfully in their lives. She said, “This house, this place is completely different now. All because of God.” Isn’t that beautiful?
The waterfall was a magnificent picture of God’s handiwork, but even more beautiful was the story of His life-changing power and continuing work in the lives of His people!
“Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.”
2 Corinthians 5:17
