Life in Guatemala
The past few months have been really life changing. I was able to witness the baptism of one of my students and many others. Our church has been able to build a house for a needy family and provide beds for them to sleep in. I also personally have been going through some changes for the better. For a little while I was questioning my purpose and direction. God has re-aﬃrmed me in what I am doing and has been very gracious to send friends at the right time to help me work through things and to hold me accountable. I have been stretched in my patience and in my giving.
It is coming time again for more changes. Some teachers are leaving back to the States, and some students. Changes are hard for me, and saying goodbye is even harder. Unfortunately it has become a constant thing in my life. I have had to learn that people leaving, does not mean that they don’t care or that they are “leaving me.” I myself have left many. It does not mean a lack of love or care…just that we are being called to a diﬀerent location. God has been teaching me that although I feel “left”or alone…that He is there and that He is enough. I’m still learning, but I have experienced a peace beyond understanding and there has been healing for the hurt feeling inside. Two things I know for sure: God loves and God provides.
My hope and prayer is that you all would get to continue experiencing God in deeper and fuller ways. He is enough. He loves, and He provides.
I will be coming back to the USA on June 3rd and I will be around until the end of July. I would love to catch up with you all and hear how God has been working in your life. I am also looking for people who would like to join what I am doing by supporting me ﬁnancially each month. If you are already supporting me ﬁnancially and would like to continue, please let me know.
