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.
