Day 1, Friday, August 16: Planes, Trains and Automobiles

The Sister Parish delegation from Tierra Nueva 2, Guatemala arrived today! Miriam, Yoli, Marleny, Gilberto, Padre Isidoro and Carrie arrived safely in Minneapolis and were met at the airport by a contingent of St Joan of Arc’ers bearing signs, banners and cheers. They were escorted to St Joan of Arc via light rail and cars. Everyone enjoyed an hour of fellowship and the delegates were introduced to their host families.  The delegates spent a few minutes unpacking colorful hand-made craft and candle items they had brought over in their luggage. (Lots of oohing and aahing – we are in for a treat at this fall’s Sister Parish craft sale.)  After a prayer, they dispersed with their host families for dinner and some well-earned rest. We are blessed with a great start!
