Misperceptions

Posted by Scott Well, all that is left is the trip home. We woke up around 3 am in order to beat the insane traffic that heads into Guatemala City each day. Chris was really excited to get home, too. He has been out with teams for days and days and really wanted to spend […]

Distribution Day

After a very short night’s sleep, we had a quick breakfast and headed out for Chimaltenango. This is the day that so many lives would be changed through mobility. The distribution was being held at a church next door to the Bethel wheelchair warehouse. We arrived early enough to begin moving wheelchairs into place. Our […]

Salvation for Victoriano

Nothing is random. I know it is hard for some people to believe that there is an all-knowing, all-powerful, loving God who is in control of all events in human history. But, if you come to Guatemala and see what has happened over the past few days, you will change your opinion. Today only confirmed […]

God had a lot cooking during our stove builds today!

Posted by Rick & Tom Hello from Guatemala, Day 3. Today was filled with blessings again! The day started with seeing Fuego (volcano) reminding us he is still active!

Jars of Clay

We talked […]

One more morning…

What a difference 24 hours will make… Sometimes it’s difficult to get motivated to wake up for work at 1:30 a.m. just to fly in the cold and snow.  I will not have that trouble tomorrow.  The anticipation for Guatemala will energize me to hit the ground running! My suitcase for work only changes with […]
