Splachna (mercy) in Guatemala

The day was full -- travel from Atlanta to Guatemala City to Antigua. Along the way we stopped at a clinic in Amatitlan. The region is known as El Salitre because of the warm mineral springs. While there, Pastor Eduardo Bonilla commented that he knew Rev. Matthew Harrison because he knew splachna (the Greek word for mercy/compassion). In any case, LCMS World Relief and Human Care's work is known throughout the world as is Rev. Matthew Harrison for recalling for the church splachna (compassion/mercy on those in need).

Tomorrow I hope to write more and share additional photos.
