The Noble Peace Prize

Day- 30- Thurs. 25/8/16- It is 4:42 in the morning and the “words” that caught our attention for the moment is The Noble Peace Prize. We are aware that it is not the first time that we will mention the name Thelma Aldana of Guatemala.

Here is an excerpt from WORD, which we shared with our readers on the 8th February 2016, “Mon. 8/2/16- It is 4:31 in the morning and has been searching for the right “words” to fit the occasion.
You see, just a few days ago, while we were watching a talk show, it was mentioned that Thelma Aldana of Guatemala, can be a possible candidate for The Nobel Peace Prize.

On the other hand, we just to through reading Dr. Martin Luther King’s discourse in Oslo in 1964 when he received the Nobel Peace Prize. Here is what caught our attention, “I have the audacity to believe that people everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education, and culture for their minds, and dignity, equality, and freedom for their spirits.”-The Autobiography of Marin Luther King Jr. - By Clayborne Carson.   

Before we continue, we would like to thank The Most High and the Spirits of the Trouble Makers in advance for their intervention in our affairs. We want to thank you for sharing your time with us.
Back to the moment that caught our attention this morning, in this case, we would like to share this moment with you in three parts. The first part took place at the Villa Caribe Hotel in La Buga on Tuesday 28th 2016. The meeting was with the institution that Sister Thelma Aldana of Guatemala is in charge of today. Her representatives were in La Buga last Tuesday speaking of wanting a better and stronger relationship with the Garifuna People of Guatemala. Therefore an agreement was reached for us to organize a structure urgently for the 9th September 2016.

The second part is about today, where do we stand on judicial issues regarding the Garifuna People of Guatemala. In this case, we have spoken in many occasions about the need of a Political Figure for the Garifuna People of Guatemala.

The third part should be about creating a political figure that an institution like the judicial systems of Guatemala will respect. It is vital for us, the Garifuna People of Guatemala to participate in the legal process.

Speaking of a legal process, we hope to be at the seventh COMUDE meeting in a row at the head- quarters of ONEGUA sometime this morning. It should be known that this is the first time in the history of La Buga that something like this has taken place.  In this case, we hope to provide the updates as they unfold in front of our eyes.

Labor Pain

Day- 18- 13/8/16- It is 6:07 in the morning and it has been twenty four hours since the labor pain began and now we have seventy two hours to go. In the meantime we were playing around with some numbers, for example Day- 21 will fall on the 16th August 2016. The 16th August was a day that was set aside almost nineteen years ago.

Day- 19- Sun. 14/8/16- It is 5:33 in the evening and have decided not to wait another twelve hours before we share what unfolded in front of our eyes yesterday.

From our point of view yesterday was marked by these words, “The concept of the Seeds that was revealed to us on the 21st June 2016, by way of the Spirit of Sister Myrna Mack. We were at the office of AVANSO to receive the Seeds that Sister Myrna Mack was talking about and yesterday it became a fragile plant that is a day old today.

We hope to care and provide everything this plant will need. To be honest with you, we have no idea of how long it will take for her to bear fruits.”

What took place at the head-quarters of Beluba Luba Furendie yesterday sometime between 10:30 and 12:30 has shaped the role Tomas Sanchez will play if there is a future for the project between PNUD, AVANSCO and Beluba Luba Furendie?

I would like the key players to know that Tomas Sanchez have decided to step aside, because I am not sure if I am on the same page with my colleagues. Opportunities like this in particular will allow me to take a better look at the situation from the inside and out.    
    
On the other hand we believe that Beluba Luba Furendie comes close to the Seeds that Sister Myrna Mack has been revealing to us. Beluba Luba Furendie is a like a nursery. It is a place where we are taking care of the seeds of La Buga.

Day-20- Mon. 15/8/16- It is 3:10 in the morning and just got through reading a message that Brother Obama shared with us through the Audacity of Hope, “According to this view, the Founding Fathers and the original ratifies have told us how to think but are no longer around to tell us what to think. We are on our own, and have only our reason and judgment to rely on.”

If we had stayed in bed a little longer this morning maybe we would have missed the concept of a message like this in a time like this. The labor pain we have been writing about for the past three days as not eased.

The leader of one of the most powerful unions in the country of Guatemala by the name of Joviel Acevedo has said on VEA Canal, a prestigious public channel in Guatemala, that the teachers will continue the strike until President Jimmy Morales signs.

What calls our attention in this case, is that both sides are talking about the important role of the parents. A role that the parents of children in the public schools of Guatemala can play  in the decision making, but as far as we know, neither side has invited us to the round table. We would like both sides to know that we are ready to sit on the same table with them.

We would like the parents of the children in the public schools of Guatemala to have a voice and a vote in the decision making as far as their education is concern. We the Garifuna Parents of the children in the public schools that lives  in our community to get ready to participate in the decision making as far as the education of our children is concern.

In this case, we would like to know, what are the possibilities for us to be invited by Vea Canal to give our side of the story?

We would like the People of Guatemala to know that the future of Guatemala depends on the quality of the education. The future of our Children will be measured by the quality of the education they are receiving now.

Day-21- Tues. 16/8/16- It is 6:18 in the morning and wondering if some-day you and I can look back at this date nineteen years from today. Those of us that is taking life one day at a time and living every moment like if it is the last, may think that it will an eternity.

For example most of our children in Public Schools in La Buga are not in class today, however this has been going on for more than fifteen years that we know of. Are we going to allow for this to happen for another fifteen years?

The concept of Labor Pain is about the painful transition that our country of Guatemala is going through. It is painful to see the future of our country on the brinks of a system that has collapsed and from our point of view we have no choice but to choose common good.

Labor Pain can give birth to Common Good in more ways than what we can ever imagine. We would like to give you our Word that we will share with you as the events unfold in front of our eyes.

Common Good, Part III

Day-5- Sun. 31/7/16- It is 5:03 in the morning and just came across the word “filibuster,” while reading The Audacity of Hope- by Brother Barack Obama. Today is Day-5 on our calendar, on the other calendar; the month of July has five weekends this year, meaning five Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. An event like this can take centuries to unfold; it is definitely a blessing to be here.

It is a blessing to share a moment like this with you, and we hope that the “Words” or Seeds” will find the right soil to germinate. In this case, what called our attention this morning is the concept of Two Words that we have been using for quite some time now, “Common Good.”

It will be twenty years on the 16th August 2016 since we have been using words to share. From our point of view, “to share” with words is not an easy concept to grasp, and could be the main reason why we are still trying today.

Today however; is a day that was set aside for this to unfold. We believe that “Common Good” begins with a strong foundation in Education. The Educational System in Guatemala has failed us in more ways than one. Our children in the public schools of La Buga have not completed a calendar of 180 days of classes in fifteen years. In so many “words” our children have not had a complete year of classes that we know of since 2001.

At the COMUDE meeting that was held at the head-quarters of ONEGUA on Thursday 28th July 2016 we were able to express our disappointment at the system and the teachers who are supporting it.

If a teacher is not in his or her classroom in La Buga by Tuesday August 2nd 2016, the world will know that she has failed our children and she has failed us. Most Teachers in La Buga are taking advantage of the situation by blaming the system. Some teachers are teaching at the private schools and promoting that private education is better. Some Teachers are sending their children to private schools while they are supporting the strike against public education.

We said at the COMUDE meeting in La Buga on July 28th 2016 that “Education” is an integral part of the Common Good.  Education is the nutrition of our future.

Words are Seeds

Day-31- Sun. 17/7/16- It is 4:42 in the morning and getting ready to be in Rio Dulce- Livingston, Guatemala somewhere around the bridge that looks like a monument. The concept of a monument is provoking a sensation that we are looking forward to. Brother Leo has been in La Buga since Friday 15th July 2016. The first time we met Brother Leo was in December 2004 along with Brother Luther and Brother Gaborone. Therefore it has taken eleven years for this to unfold.

Day-32- 18/7/16- It is 7:59 in the morning and words are seeds is in the making. It was the 21st June 2016 since the word seeds was revealed to us by Sister Myrna Elizabeth Mack Chang. Yesterday the 17th July 2016, we received the miracle seeds in our hands in Rio Dulce at a nursery called Frutas Del Mundo, where we met Brother Dwight. It was at the home of another Brother who is now a part of the congress for the department of Izabal Guatemala.

It was at the home of the brother who is now in congress that we began to understand that the seeds Sister Myrna is talking about are our children across borders. The first set of seeds came from his home but we know from the bottom of our hearts that it is a visit we will never forget.

While we were visiting Brother Dwight at his home, which is a unique nursery we came across the sensation that we had spoken about before our departure. The words became a sweet flavor and can transform sour into sweet in the moment of a heartbeat.

When we give somebody our word, it likes giving them a seed. Jesus Christ once told us a story about some seeds he had given to a few farmers; it is interesting that we still have the same choice today.
When we receive a word from somebody, we have the choice to do the same with a seed. The seeds we received in Rio Dulce yesterday are on their way to Gangadiwali and some will make their way to Punta Gorda and soon across borders

Center of Attention

Day- 19- Tues. 5/7/16- It is 5:57 in the morning and Center of Attention is in the making with a message from Myrna Elizabeth Mack Chang: - sunrise was the year 1949 and sunset was 1990.

“Chispa de luz en la oscuridad, desbordante, testigo del hambre, la extrema pobreza, la desnutrición, voz de dignidad frente la impunidad y la injusticia. 
Maestra y ciudadana consciente- Lucha y esperanza
Aspiramos a ser consecuentes con las semillas que nos heredó”

Day-20- Wed.  6/7/16- It is 5:53 in the morning and the light is showing us that we are twenty days away from Day- 40; therefore we are in the center, right in the middle, so far it has taken us twenty days and we have twenty to go.

From our point of view, “Center of attention is one of those concepts that are not easy to grasp, it is difficult to find “words” to describe a Spiritual Adventure. We first started using the concept when the construction of what we call today the Center of Attention. The Center of Attention today is in Gangadiwali it is where Diriwana’s Table is located for the past four years.”

Day- 22- Fri. 8/7/16- It is 6:26 in the morning and has been meditating about a particular part of a message that was revealed to us by the spirit of Myrna Mack on the 21st June 2016. We were in Gangadiwali yesterday to receive the “seeds” that Myrna Mack is revealing to us.

Day- 23- Sat. 9/7/16- It is 6:18 in the morning and just got through glancing at a document in the form of a project called ICHARI GANGADIWALI. Brother Ivan’s intervention has been vital in this process for more than eight years and continues today.

It will be eight years since our return to Gangadiwali on July 23rd 2016 and today we can say that the “seeds” are ready. The seeds are ready for Day-40 on the 26th July 2016.

Day- 24- Sun. 10/7/16- It is 6:29 in the morning and just got through reading Two Faces. The concept of two faces was born from a statement made by Brother Todd Robinson on the 30th April 2015 at the head quarters of ONEGUA.

The message has more or less 1,351 words and each one can compromise what a group or a person is saying. In this case, in the past you would not find the word “Brother” in front of the name of Ambassador Todd Robinson of the United States.

Today has been set aside to let the world know that the dream of Martin Luther King for the Garifuna Nation in Guatemala is still alive because of “Brothers” like you. Today we can tell the world that you are our Brother and the Spirits of the Trouble Makers and Our Ancestor will always be with you.

The concept of Center of Attention is not an easy concept to grasp. It has taken us eight years to be here today. The eight years we are referring began in July 2008 and on the 30th April 2015 you became a part of it. Since April of 2015 Guatemala became a Center of Attention.

The concept of Center of Attention from our point of view at this moment is about understanding our call.

Light And Darkness

Day-15- Fri. 1/7/16- It is 6:24 in the morning, because of what unfolded in front of our eyes yesterday in La Guairá, next to Gangadiwali, is the main reason why we are sharing this message with you today.

Day-17 – Sun. 3/7/16- It is 5:52 in the morning,  Light and Darkness is in the making.  The past seventy hours has been like another world for us, it has taught us the difference between day and night and between light and darkness.

Duality is a concept that we first started sharing with our readers from an experience we had in Tela Honduras from November 4th - November 8th 2013.  What took place in La Guaira and Gangadiwali on Thursday June 30th 2016 and what took place at Bro Fermin’s home on Friday July 1st 2016 is like light and darkness.

Before we continue first we would like to give and thanks and praise to the Most High and the Spirits of the Trouble Makers for their intervention in our affairs. We want to thank you for being here; In this case we would like to share a message with you that we will take us back to Tele Honduras ,November 4th November 2013.

“I was able to say on the microphone that “words” can compromise an individual or a group based on what the person or group is saying. I was in Honduras to speak as the President of ONEGUA, but in this case I would like to take it to another level, I would like to take the opportunity to write my open speech. I am choosing the time and place to put this in writing because I would like to stand by what I am putting in writing”.

Tomorrow will be two years and eight months since the experience we are writing about took place. We have learned that the concept of duality is a way of life. We believe that it is not a concept we can measure in terms of what comes first, whether it is the egg or the hen. We believe that it is one and the same.

We acknowledge that there are two forces that repels and sometimes it may look to naked eyes like they are fighting against each other. There was a side of me that unfolded at Fermin’s home that has brought us to this moment.

There have been many dark moments in my life and one of them was Friday 1st 2016. I realized that I am responsible for the darkness that took place and will give my word that darkness will not prevail.

The light has allowed me to see the darkness that I have created in the eyes of Brother Fafa and other against me. I am responsible one hundred percent for the darkness he had seen in me. 

This much we will put in writing; we will never again speak of separation, if unity is what we are looking for.  This search could have its roots in California in the year 1992; it was an occasion that the Garifuna Nation came together.

So far, this particular journey has taken twenty four years; Bencho, Brother Fermin and I were at that occasion in Los Angles California in 1992. Last Friday Bencho and I were at Brother Fermi’s home along with Bro Mariano, Bro. Fafa and Bro. David .  I would like to apologize to these brothers. I am giving them my word that I will never again speak from the dark side of me.

On the other hand tomorrow will be another day; it will be like the birth of a new beginning. Bro Fermin was born on a day like tomorrow. The fourth of July was set aside many years ago.

The concept of a calendar caught our attention from Pildorita 60 Cuando Comienza el Año Nuevo Garifuna  by Brother Salvador Suazo.

In this case, by our calendar, tomorrow will be Day-18. Day-18 on our calendar has always been a mystic day. Therefore Brother Fermin was born on a Mystic Day and we would like to wish him a Mystical Birthday.

Expectation and Attention


Day-7- Thurs. 23/6/16- It is 6:43 in the morning and it has been five days since we joined expectation and attention together. We were in Guatemala City a couple days ago; to be honest with you at this moment we cannot give you an exact date about our last visit to the capital however the trip that took place on the 21st June 2016 will never be forgotten.

To join expectation and attention together brought us to a moment like this, but it does not stop here. It has been six years since a relationship between the Garifuna People of Guatemala and a branch of the United Nation began here in La Buga and still continues today.

In this case, the relationship has taken different forms and routes and now we are trying to create another figure. Beluba Luba Furendie has been playing the role of a committee in our community for more than eight years and continues to struggle to meet some of the needs of the communities in our municipality.

 The role of a committee within the legal system of Guatemala is not enough for us to continue the struggle. It was how Beluba Luba Furendie came in contact with AVANSCO [Asociación para el Avance de las Ciencias Sociales en Guatemala] by way of Brother Ivan Jamett in 2014 and in October 2015 the relationship between Beluba Luba Furendie, PNUD, and AVANSCO became a project.

The past eight months has been a learning process and continues today however the visit to Guatemala on Tuesday 21st June 2016 will not be forgotten for many reasons. From our point of view the meeting between us was like a little light at the end of the tunnel.

Day-9- Sat.  25/6/16- It is 6:55 in the morning and just got through reading A Spiritual Vote which we share with you on the 25th October 2015.  A month from today which will be the 25th July 2016 is Day 39.  Day 40 is on July 26th 2016 a month from tomorrow.

Tomorrow will be Day-10 and it falls on the 26th June 2016, and for the most part the world will be watching the expansion of the Panamá Chanel. It is a project that has taken nine years with more than 40,000 workers and predictions are being made for the next hundred years. It is our prediction that someday products of the Garifuna Nation will be crossing the Panamá Channel also. 

Tomorrow is Day-10 on our calendar and we hope to share with you as the events unfold.
Day-11- Mon. 27/6/16- It is 6:56 in the morning, and feeling a “sense” that we have not experienced before. It started yesterday on our way to Gangadiwali and has prevailed to this moment.

While we were in Gangadiwali yesterday, the events that unfolded in front of our eyes proved beyond a reasonable doubt that Gangadiwali was chosen for the “redemption”of the Garifuna Nation in the Americas.

What took place on Diriwana’s Table yesterday comes close to what Booker T. Washington was talking about.  The “bucket” that Booker T. was talking about is now in Gangadiwali for the Garifuna Nation in the Americas.

Stand By What You Say

Day- 35- Sat. 11/6/16- It is 5:14 in the morning and Stand by what you say is in the making.

For a man to say that he is “Pretty” is not an ever day occasion, and it is not an easy concept to grasp. So far, he has been the only pretty man I have ever seen in a ring. He has been the only pretty man to stand by what he say, rain, shine, wet or fine, please smile with me.

We first heard of Mohammad Ali in the early seventies while living in Pomona Valley in the district of what is now Dangriga Belize. During his last fights in early eighties we were already living in South Central in Los Angeles.

Yesterday we were watching cable television live from Kentucky, where Mohammad Ali shared his youth. We were able to learn how Ali has touched our lives. To touch the world in a way that Ali did, unfolds in unique ways.

To stand by what you say, from our point of view cannot be measured by the amount of words that you are using to get the message across. Ali was able to use a lot of words to get the message across; however it was the principles behind those words that made him pretty.

 One of our favorite concepts to date is to stand by what we say; “principles” however have brought us to this moment. We want to world to know that the Garifuna Nation will miss you.

On the other hand, we have been feeding the idea that we were going to share has unfolded during the past seven days starting here “ Day- 27- Fri. 3/6/16- It is 6:11in the morning and have been thinking about a date that has been set aside. The 26th July 2016 will be a Day 40 and symbolize a return.  It will be four years this July since the largest group of youngsters ever gatherer together in Gangadiwali.

It will be four years since we have been cultivating the idea of a return, the return of the young brothers and sisters who were in Gangadiwali four years ago. We have mentioned before the importance of a relationship between the two faces.

The old face and the new face, has to have something in common.  We believe that our Spirituality is the common ground. It has been our guiding light and it is taking us back to Gangadiwali.

Day 28- Sat. 4/6/16- It  is 4:58 in the morning and has been  thinking about a message we shared with you yesterday morning that goes like this “We believe that our Spirituality is the common ground.”

We came in contact with Bro. Fermin, Bro. Fafa and Bencho on my way to La Pista to visit Waba yesterday. From our point of view, it was obvious that our center was Garifuna Spirituality.  We have said before and we are saying it again that our Spirituality has not failed us, we have failed our Spirituality.

The situation and condition in Guatemala is calling for change. The situation and condition among the Garifuna Nation is calling for change. Our Spirituality is calling for change.

 It will be vitally important for the reader to understand that this message will have to go beyond our personal differences. Change comes with a price. Change is the result of cause and effect.

 The 26th July 2016 will fall on a Tuesday more or less fifty two days away and would like for you to join us on a Spiritual Adventure.

We asked the readers a question not long ago about when was the last time you did something for the first time. A Spiritual Adventure is a concept that allows you to see Heaven on Earth.

Day-29- Sun. 5/6/16- It is 5:02 in the morning and was thinking about what unfolded in front of our eyes at the head quarters of ONEGUA at the monthly meeting for the community leaders yesterday evening.

The main menu of the meeting continues to be the water crisis in La Buga. We were told by one of the engineers who came with the team that they had been at the same water source in 1998 trying to do same thing they are doing now. They told us in so many words that there is enough water at the source to supply La Buga twenty four hours for the next forty to fifty years.

In this case, we would like our readers to understand that so far it has been a process. We are getting a second chance at the same project eighteen years later.  We are inviting to join us and support the cause.

Let’s not be the ones to be blamed by the future generation.  Let’s not be the ones to stop the growth of La Buga, because without water there will be no growth. Let’s be the ones to take a chance at the possibilities. Let be the ones to take a chance at “change.”

Day-30- Mon.  6/6/16- It is 2:44 in the morning and our mind is set on this moment. From our point of view, a moment like this is what heaven on earth is all about; it is when the mind, body and soul come together as one.

The mind, body, and soul now become “we” it is an understanding that at this dimension we become the past, present and future. Now in this moment we are the Ancestors of Tomorrow.

The word that caught my attention this morning while we were studying the Strategic Plan of the Parlamento Garifuna was the word Vision .

The concept of a Vision for our Nation is vital, in this case where do we see ourselves in the future. Heaven on earth is a moment that continues, from this moment, to the moment this message finds you, it becomes an understanding.

Day-33- Thurs. 9/6/16- It is 4:31 in the morning and just got through studying RESOLUCIÓN N0. 452   it got to our hands by way of Bro Baldo Estero yesterday but was issued on April 8th 2016, by the Ministry of Education of Guatemala. 

RESOLUCIÓN  N0. 452, is now an “agreement” that gives the parents of public school students a legal instrument to play a role in the decision making regarding the future of our children and grandchildren. We would like the actual president of the Republic of Guatemala, President, Jimmy Morales to know, that he and his team has exceeded the expectations of many, including ours.

We the Garifuna of Guatemala would like to give you our “Word”, that we hope to be among the first public schools to be registered in a project like this from La Buga. We want to thank you and your team for making a difference.

On the other hand the responsibility that will lie on our shoulders as Garifuna Parents will depend on the same standard. How many of us are ready for the extra mile.  How many of us can exceed our own expectations? How many of us can make a difference?”

Stand by what you say!

Heaven on Earth

Day-10- Tues. 17/5/16- It is 4:04 in the morning and we have been looking at some of the days that are already set aside. To begin with today is Day-10 and it falls on the 17th May 2016.  From an angle like this we can study very carefully the events that have unfolded during the past ten days of the first quarter; it can be done with the previous three quarters for the past two years.

Day- 11 is tomorrow and  Day- 19 - Day- 20 are already set aside, during the next eight days the fire will be burning. We believe that the events that will unfold for the next eight days will give birth to what the Ancestors of Tomorrow have expected.  We have been writing about what is unfolding during Expectation- IV.

Expectations for the year 2016 started on the 8th January 2016 which was Day-1.   Expectation -V will begin on the 17th June 2016 and come to a new cycle on the 27th July 2016.  The next Day- 40 will fall on June 16, 2016 and the date we are looking forward to is the 26th July 2016.

We plan to be on Diriwana’s Table today to sit with the Ancestors of Tomorrow in Gangadiwali. We plan to be on Diriwana’s Table today to pray to the Spirits of the Trouble Markers never to leave us alone during the struggle.

Day- 11-  Wed. 18/5/16- It is 4:15 in the morning and while we were organizing our agenda for today we realized that it has been four months since the first day of class for the children of Labuga in the Public Schools. The reputation of the Public Schools in Guatemala could be at its lowest point, and La Buga is not an exception. From our point of view, the education and the educator blend very well for those who have been trapped by a system that has fallen short of our expectations. 

In this case we would like to share a message with you that we wrote on January 19th 2016; therefore tomorrow will be four months since this message was revealed.

“Tues. 19/1/16- It is 4:07 in the morning and we have been thinking about this moment due to how we understand the concept of expectations today.  What are some of the expectations we can share with you this morning.  In this case, first and foremost Thanks and Praise to the Most High and the Spirits of the Trouble Makers for their intervention in our affairs.

We want to thank you for being a part of this journey; a journey that began in San Diego California on the 16th August 1997, and continues today in La Buga Guatemala.  To give you an idea we were present yesterday for the first day of Imenigi in Jr. High.  What we are hoping to do here is to shed some light on the reality of the Garifuna People in Guatemala from different angles.

“We have shared in many occasions that the Garifuna Teachers and Educators have fallen short of our expectations in Guatemala.” We would like to acknowledge that we have allowed the system to dictate the outcome. We all know that our Garifuna Teachers Educators work in one of the poorest educational system in the Americas.”

If our children have fallen short of our expectations, now is the time to do something about it.

Day- 13- Friday 20/5/16- It is 6:14 in the morning and while watching the news from Guatemala, one of the vice ministers of education was justifying why this government has not been able to meet the needs for the nutritional programs for the public schools in Guatemala. We could not avoid thinking about the role Gangadiwali can play in a time like this.

Food For Thought has been in the making for eighteen years and nine months.  It has given birth to a moment like this; we hope that this journey can take us through another eighteen years and nine months.

The next eighteen years will come whether we are here or not.  The next eighteen years can begin when you choose to participate. “The concept of participation in this context is about exceeding your own expectations.”

If we get the chance to share with you for another eighteen years it will be like heaven on earth.

Thanks to the Almighty
Seremein Lun Sunti Gabafu

Day- 33- Sat. 30/4/16- It is 5:53 in the morning and would like to share with you what is unfolding in front of our eyes. For some reason we have been studying and praying. We have been praying and studying “ I’VE BEEN ON THE MOUNTAIN TOP” by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  It has been forty eight years since the intervention of the Most High, The Almighty in our affairs and we won’t stop here.

If we the Garifuna Nation of Guatemala were standing on the edge of time, we would ask the Almighty, the Most High and the Spirits of the Trouble Makers to intervene in Our Affairs 
Day-34- Sun. 1/5/16- It is 4:52 in the morning and was thinking about a phone call we received yesterday a few minutes before noon. The call came in from La Pista which is now a community. Forty eight years ago the “territory” already mentioned was an area where Garifuna Families would grow their corps, not far from the Garifuna Temple in Milinda, not far from Chewecha.
We began a relationship fourteen years ago with a piece of land in La Pista. We believe that the meeting in La Pista today is not a coincidence. Studying I’ve been on the mountain top is not a coincidence.

What is about to unfold from now on will be connected with Day-40 which will be on Saturday 7th May 2016. By being a part of this journey, we want to give Thanks and Praise to the Most High and the Spirits of the Trouble Makers for their “intervention” in our affairs.

Day-36- Tues. 3/5/16- It is 4:03 in the morning and just got through reading the first paragraph of “ A drum major for righteousness” - The Autobiography of Martin Luther King Jr. edited by Clayborne Carson, here is the part that caught our attention this morning.

“We all think about it. And every now then I think about my own death, and think about my own funeral. And I don’t think of it in a morbid sense. Every now and then I ask myself, “What is it that I would want said” And I leave the word to you this morning.

The “word” we have chosen this morning is “Seremein”. It is a Garifuna Word that transcends time and space. “Thanks” is another way to say it.

Thanks In Advance it is concept that we have manage to share with you few years ago. Now that we are living what we have given thanks for, we give thanks and praise in advance to the Most High and the Spirits of the Trouble Makers for their intervention in our affairs.

Thanks in Advance on behalf of the Garifuna Nation for never leaving us alone in the wilderness of Central America. Thanks In Advance for the outcome.

Day- 40, is four days away, May 7th 2016 is a day already set aside for what will unfold in front of our eyes. The “word” that is already chosen is “Seremein”

Day 37- 4/5/16- It is 5:33 in the morning and thinking about what unfolded in front of our eyes yesterday. The high of our day was a feedback from Dr. Joe and Bro. Roy.

Seremein is a “word” that was chosen for a time like this. It is the intervention of the Most High along with the Spirits of the Trouble Makers that created this moment for us to take a serious look at the Garifuna Conditions in Central America.

The next three days will give birth to Expectation IV.  We are looking forward to the next forty days already.  According to our calendar the next forty days will fall in the fourth quarter. The 8th May 2016 will be the beginning of another expectation and comes to a new point on the 16th June 2016.

Day-38-  Thurs. 5/5/15- It is 4:24 in the morning and getting ready for the day, at the same time thinking about what is unfolding. We were thinking about a commitment that we have for the 15th May 2016, not to forget that a star among us was born on May 15th. ----.  This Star once told Lúbara Huya that he has not been to Gangadiwali.

The trip to Gangadiwali this morning is about a spiritual journey that came together in Tela Honduras from the 4th November- 8th November 2013 and continues today. The next nine days will be full of “wonders”.

We wonder if the Star will be in Gangadiwali and La Pista on his birthday. Thanks In Advance.
Day-40-   Sat. 7/5/16- It is 4:45 in the morning and we have  been going like an energizer battery since  2:30 and now that we are here we want to give Thanks In Advance, first and foremost to the Most High and the Spirits of the Trouble Makers for their intervention in our affairs. We are praying for your intervention as we write the following “words.” Seremein Lun Sunti Gabafu, in so many words, we are saying Thanks to the Almighty for a moment like this.

Au- Le
