Guatemala City x Photo Diaries

Here lies my photo diary of the busiest fly-by trip of my life...my first to Guatemala (hopefully of many more to come)!

Our Gateway Worship team was honored to lead worship and teach worship leadership sessions at Ensancha Conference 2017, plus weekend church services at Casa de Dios...a stunningly beautiful church in Guatemala City. Late nights, early mornings, little sleep and maximum ministry pretty much sums up our experience. (I think I slept roughly 7 hours in 3 days, y'all.) BUT God's strength was truly perfected in our weakness. Our team pulled together, worked hard and laughed the whole way through. I don't know if I've ever experienced such team unity and power in worship. (If you want to see a few minutes of our time in worship, I shared a video on my Facebook page)

We had an absolute blast! On top of spectacular ministry, don't get me started on the fabulous new friends, the weather (they call it the ETERNAL SPRING...literally my dream come true) and the food.

Below are photos from our evening out on the town at Paseo Cayala, a huge outdoor town center filled with shops, eats, entertainment and beautiful outdoor spaces like a dog park lined in fresh baby blue hydrangea flowers...unreal. (Out on the town = NUTELLA CREPES) Paseo Cayala.

And the photo diaries just wouldn't be complete without a few outfit photos, right? This denim jacket is a current favorite that's sure to stick around through fall. I love the stretch and give...makes for such a comfy fit. I paired it with this jumpsuit (under $40) and Malibu estate sale shoes (sorry, no link :). These frames are a FAQ, so here's where you can purchase the exact pair for under $100!

My gorgeous momma who helped me document this trip. We all have her to thank. :) xoxo

All the best,

Jess
