On the "road" again!

A view from Pastor Mario's home in Magdalena Milpas Altas.

I am so excited - a month from today I will be back in Guatemala!!! I certainly did not expect this opportunity.  His Hands Support Ministries has been given the go ahead to start a sponsorship program in a small village outside Magdalena Milpas Alas.  I can't wait to go back and see the people we met in August.

It will be a short trip as we need to process only 25 children who will be starting school for the first time.

Pastor Merari with some of the children from El Membrillal.

A dear lady we met in El Membrillal.

A grandmother and grandchild.

One of the many roadside markets.

 I saw a quote today that I really like.

from a friend currently in Haiti & her devotion of the day: If we aren't serving , we are just existing. Rick Warren stated," Life is meant for ministry." God wants us to love and serve others unselfishly.


Blessings to you.

Election Day

Choose this day whom YOU will serve - as for me, I will serve the LORD. (paraphrased from Joshua 24:15) Today is our chance to stand on the Word of God and what is right in His eyes. Remember - we are to strive to be holy (separated from the sin of the world) because God is Holy. (1 Peter 1:15, 16 & 2 Corinthians 7:1) 


Today we have to vote on whether homosexual marriage should be legal.  It has been quite a battle for our state.  Earlier this year, our legislature voted that it should be legal.  Some voters took offense and brought it to the point of putting it on the ballot.

Today, I voted for God and His unchanging Word.  I pray there are more who beleive marriage is for man and woman than those who think it's OK because "after all, God is love."  They ignore that He is also a God of righteousness. A holy God.  God who will judge.

May He be glorified today.
