We returned to Guatemala ready to hit the ground running! That was a great frame of mind because, we had quite a busy month! A team of lady friends came to share their gifts and love with the ladies of the hermandad project. We hiked a volcano with them and watched it sputter in pre-eruption excitement. A ballet dance on a soccer field. 60 families fed in place of the originally thirty planned. Praise God! May these families return to the church. May they return to the loving arms of our Lord. Brilliant lights on a much desired Christmas Tree and in the eyes of those holding burning candles in a candle light service. A realization of just how soon time travels as we began taking daily steps of life together as a family of three. What a beautiful month. What a gift. All of it.
I am still reeling!
“And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” Ephesians 5:2
God is Faithful. He is good! What an oppurtunity we have to share Him wherever we are. We hope that you enjoy the photos of how God allowed us to share and Love Where We Live the final month of 2017. Shane, Mandy, and Ava.
