On The Eve Of Something Life-Changing

Guatemala 2013 321

There is an electricity in the air.

The excitement is building, and there is this feeling that something life-changing is about to happen.

In just over an hour, our family will be heading towards Newark, NJ to catch a flight tomorrow morning to Guatemala.

We have thoughts, ideas, dreams, hopes, and even some fears about what we are about to experience.

We want to change lives – lives of widows, lives of orphans, lives of those who don’t know Jesus.  This will probably happen, but it won’t be the only change that happens.  With little doubt, we will be impacted.  Each of our lives will be transformed by our time away in a foreign land.

What stories we will have to share upon our return.  I can only imagine.

And so as we stand on the brink of amazing expectation and opportunity, we patiently wait with anticipation of what is to come.

I’m not certain about my ability to connect while we are in Guatemala.  I’ll try to check in from time to time if time and accessibility permits.  In the meantime, I have a great line up of guest bloggers who will keep you stretching while I am away.  Read their posts.  Leave comments and enter the discussion.  Jump over to their blogs.  (And while you are at it say a prayer for us, for our partners, and for the people of Guatemala – specifically of Santo Domingo Xenacoj.)

Until next week, keep stretching and look for something life-changing.

 My eager expectation and hope is that I will not be ashamed about anything, but that now as always, with all boldness, Christ will be highly honored in my body, whether by life or by death.  Philippians 1:20 HCSB
