Week 2 - We spent a few more days with the team from Journey Church, Dinner with Antonietta and Jose Martinez, a Guatemala family we met on our first visit to Magdalena. Dinner with The Kunkel Family, another family who is serving here in Magdalena. Then off to Lake Atitlan for Intermissions Conference. Great worship, workshops and fellship.
When leaving, I was drawn to a sign on the side of a car - International Orphan Rescue - it reminded me of where I am and how my mind used to think. Just a few weeks ago if I would see the words "Orphan Rescue" I would think of animals as that is such a common thing in NJ. But here in Guatemala, it is about children. Oh, how things are different here. Each day I realize just how small my view on life is, and how much bigger My God is.
Much of our ride home from the conference I spent praying for God's protection over this beautiful country filled with so much pain, and for God to help me to understand just what it is that breaks His heart and to use me in ways I could never imagine.
