Day 4: Independence Day Boat Trip

Today the mission prepared an “American” picnic of fried chicken, potato salad, and apple pie for us to take on a boat which carried us across the lake to two towns, first San Antonio and then Santiago. There, we had an opportunity to purchase local Guatemalan wares and visit the churches. At the church in Santiago, Fr. Stanley Rother was gunned down and martyred in his room adjacent to the church there, which now serves as a shrine for pilgrims who go to pray for his intercession.
