At the beginning of February, I traveled to Guatemala with an amazing team of strangers-turned-friends under the leadership of author Jeff Goins on a vision trip based on his book, Wrecked, that could only have been planned and orchestrated by God.
Those few short days in Guatemala left me emptied of myself and forever changed.
I came away with a deeper understanding of what it means to be a small part of God’s bigger story by simply being available and humbly learning from and loving on His people.
Two months later, I’m still processing and learning what it means to live fully and love well in each moment while being confronted with a sort of uncomfortable tension that won’t let me sit complacently doing my own thing, fulfilling my own selfish desires, because more than anything my heart longs to live for the Lord and to serve where and how He leads.
But even all of that seems rather unimportant. Because none of this is about me at all.
It’s about Christ. It’s about His love for His people. It’s about His beautiful and glorious redemption.
When I left Guatemala, I didn’t know if I would ever have the opportunity to go back. But not long after we returned, one of my new friends-who-feels-more-like-family, Alene, began to share that God was speaking to her about taking a team back to Guatemala.
Specifically back to Guatemala City to serve with Potter’s House and in the community of Treasures surrounding the dump.
So, I’m going back to Guatemala with her team October 9-13th, 2013!!
And you’re invited, too!

Is God speaking to your heart to go and serve with us in Guatemala City?
