Can't shake this......


"...once our eyes are opened, we can't pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12

I agree 100% and struggle daily with how I can help. It's true--once your eyes are opened to these things, you're never the same.

I totally agree. Guatemala is on my heart continually. I'm praying for direction on what to do.

God's placed this on your heart; he will lead you on why.

Blessings to your precious family.

I am in the process of writing about this same thing in our family blog for our christmas letter! We too spent a couple of months in Guat. before bringing our daughter home and are forever changed by what we saw!!
May God lead us all to do what ever He wills for us because of our experiences there!
Blessings,
Stacy

I can't remember if I've delurked her or not so, just in case I haven't here ya go. I started following your blog about a month before you moved to Guatemala to foster beautiful Eliana. I'm SOOO happy to see that she indeed is home and doing so well. You all 3 look like your having the time of your life.
Okay, so now YES I too have such a desire to return to Guatemala. Our sweetie Joshua has been home since Oct. '07. I like many others thought okay just get home, settle in and the "urge" will leave. Well, it's been over a year and it's just as strong as it was back then. I'm sooo tired of crying. As God says we can not ignore what we have seen.
I would enjoy speaking with you about possibly getting a team together. I know of 1 other most definetly if not 2. My email is grosskelly@bellsouth.net

God Bless,
Kelly

I know......so MANY, MANY needs in the country of our children's births.....Guatemala (& helping there) has been heavy on my heart as of late.

The biggest is the need to share the Gospel with the lost there (while caring for physical needs-I believe it is impossible to share the good news of Jesus with people who are hungry, cold or sickunless you help their physical needs first!)

I'm so haunted by the things I seen on my last trip to Guatemala. I know God lead me here for a reason and He allowed me to do great things while I was there and I know He is NOT done with me yet!! You can see pictures on my blog at www.mommyslilblessings.blogspot.com
I'm already working on my next trip and I just got home on Thursday, but it was in the works before I even got back home!
