My husband and I are headed back to Guatemala this week and I realized I failed to share any pictures from our trip last summer.
It’s so hard to “put into words” what these trips are like – how much it wrecks a heart – and yet leaves a yearning to go back.
This past trip we distributed book bags full of hygiene items, small toys and crafts to our little village, put a roof on a widow’s home, ministered to some people at a local dump, distributed food and clothing, and loved on and played with a whole lot of kiddos. It’s hard to just list these things out because it doesn’t seem to do justice to the impact each experience had on our team and on the people we came in contact with. But I’ve started, and restarted multiple times trying to write about this trip and our encounters…and I just can’t….
My hope is that these pictures might give you a small taste of the beauty and the devastation that is Guatemala.
We can’t wait to be back there and see what the Lord holds for us this time!
