Anyone interested in the Guatemala Presidential election runoff on Sunday, August 11. I have some interest since our church has done mission trips to an orphanage there. I haven't gone myself yet.
The Presidential race is between former first lady Sandra Torres and Alejandro Giamattei who is a former director of the Guatemalan penitentiary system. Current President Jimmy Morales is not eligible to run for re-election. Sandra Torres got the most votes in the first 2019 election. Torres is considered left of center, but that is by Central American standards. She is pro-life and against government recognized same sex marriage. Giamattei is running as a law and order candidate who supports bringing back the death penalty. Guatemala has problems with high unemployment, gang violence, and corruption in government.
July 20 is the 50th anniversary of the first landing of men on the moon. The feat which occured in 1969 was done with the comparatively primitive technology of that time. The Apollo 11 landed on the moon on that date was at 4:17 PM Eastern Daylight Time. Neil Armstrong became the first human to step on the moon at 10:56 PM EDT. December 14, 1972 is the last day that anyone has walked on the moon. It is a feat so stunning that many do not believe it really happened. Many younger people believe that the moon landings were faked. You could look up "moon landing hoax debunked" in DuckDuckGo to find a number of sites which debunk the moon landing hoax conspiracy theories.
I made a couple of posts at the King County Democrats page on Facebook telling them the Gospel truth and denouncing a Drag Queen story hour at a library in Renton, Washington. Those defenders of the drag queen story hour care more about the advancement of their ideology than they do about the welfare of children. Yet, they claim that is love. As a boy in 1974, I visited Western State Hospital in Pierce County several times; and many of the "progressive" voters in Washington State are crazier IMO than most of those at WSH at the time. Here is the URL of their page if you can stand to read their leftist claptrap, https://www.facebook.com/kingcountydemocrats .
Americans should support church and other Christian ministry run food booths at temporary marketplaces throughout the U.S. for the Independence Day holiday. My home church has a food booth.
