Carlos and Emily Romero — Guatemala

Transition in life is inevitable! Our family is experiencing much transition
this summer…now we will have our sons David and Jonathan in Texas, while
Emily, Analynne and I will stay in Guatemala.

This time, after Jonathan left, our family has been very emotional.
The house is quiet, his room is so empty, and we have been adapting to the new family settings.

In the last couple of weeks, we have been giving away Jonathan’s old
clothes and selling some instruments and electronic equipment….as you can
imagine, this has been very emotional due to the fact that Jonathan has
been part of our family worship team for the last eight years.

A few weeks ago, after my car accident, I participated in a
leadership conference as one of the speakers. Due to the social
media platform, we were able to reach people in different
locations in Guatemala and in Mexico.

On Saturday mornings, I have been teaching an apologetics class for ASELSI in Chichicastenango, and in the afternoons I have been teaching the art of communication class online for students from Mexico, Venezuela, Guatemala and Texas. This has been a transitional way of teaching after the COVID restrictions.

Emily is experiencing a big transition not only with Jonathan leaving but as many of our closest missionary friends are returning to live in the U.S.; please pray for us to make new friends. As the elementary principal at Christian Academy of Guatemala, she is also praying for all of the teacher positions to be filled for August. If you know anyone who might like to be a missionary teacher, please let us know!

As we prepare our suitcases to go to Texas and visit our family, we know that God is faithful. He never leaves us or forsakes us, and we will continue to serve Him, teaching His Word and serving the beautiful people of Guatemala.

One of the families leaving to live in the U.S. is the chaplain’s family from the kids’ school. As we were saying goodbye, the chaplain
said to Analynne, “I think you could be the next student chaplain; I know that you have what it takes!” What a privilege to see our children growing in the Lord!

We will be in the DFW area for a month from June 15 to July 15. We are ready to see our family and visit our ministry supporters. Please pray for favor and opportunities to connect with more people and to continue to raise some funds to get a newer family ministry car. Thank you so much for your prayers and financial support.

In His hands,
Carlos and Emily Romero
