I leave on Saturday to lead a team from our church to Guatemala for a week long trip. We'll be working with Lauren Pupchik from MissionImpact. While there, we'll have the opportunity to teach a Bible story and shine Jesus to the children there. It will also be a great opportunity for us to have our worldview enlarged to what God is doing in Guatemala. It's going to be a great trip, but it will be tough leaving- since Andrea and Abbie are not able to participate on the trip. This was supposed to be Abbie's first international trip, but since Andrea could not go because of some snow days, they are all going to stay home.
One of the exciting things about our trip is that we have a mom and 2 of her children going on the trip with us. (Dad and the son are staying home). The girls are elementary age. What an amazing opportunity for them to experience what God is doing around the world. I am sure that there won't be many people who can say the same thing when they get back to school in August.
I hope to write again before we leave. I may be able to do an update from Guatemala as well- which would be pretty sweet. Please keep us and our families in your prayers as we get ready to leave on Saturday! Grace and Peace.
