Guatemala Photo Of The Day – Up On The Mountain

There is something powerful about serving together with your family.  Our family has made it a point to serve together here at home in the United States and in Guatemala.

As we head over to breakfast on our second full day in Guatemala, we had the privilege of seeing all three distant peaks very clearly.  This was probably the best view we had all week as the mountains were typically covered in clouds.

As it is, Xenacoj is roughly 7,500 feet above sea level which means we truly had a mountain-top experience this week in Guatemala.  The experience lifted us up for greater service, a deeper appreciation for our home, and a strong desire to return again to the village we love.

When was the last time you had a mountain-top experience?  How were you stretched and transformed by this experience?  Tell us about it in the comments.


I lift up my eyes to the mountains — where does my help come from?  My help comes from the Lordthe Maker of heaven and earth.  He will not let your foot slip — he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.  The Lord watches over you — the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.  The Lord will keep you from all harm — he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.  Psalm 121
