I promised to bring you more details about my upcoming trip to Guatemala. Here you go!
My trip is June 22-30, 2012. I will be working alongside Doctor Gomez, an amazing man (I haven't met yet) that has devoted his life to the health and well being of the Guatemalan people. I will be assisting him in water purification projects, teaching the public the importance of hygiene, and doing some other very exciting medical work.
Even though Africa is my dream - and clearly placed on my heart by the Lord - I am so stoked for Guatemala! I didn't realize that Guatemala is number four in the world for starvation. Doesn't that just break your heart? I know it breaks mine. . . How many times do I only eat half of the meal placed before me because there is just too much? OFTEN. How often do these men, women, and children go without food? SO OFTEN.
I can't wait to share resources, knowledge, love, and JESUS with the Guatemalan people. The closer we get to the trip, the more excited I become. I will be sure to keep you all posted on more specific details of the trip when they are finalized.
Thank you for reading. Thank you for caring. Thank you for supporting.
