Until last Friday at our meeting we were given... the names. I was handed a short list of a grandfather and his two grandchildren Oliver 2, Catherine 5. This family will have a new home to live in after our mission trip is finished. My mind starts racing with questions: What is their story? How did the parents die? Where are they staying now?
Overwhelmed, I think of how I never build anything. Ugh. Our little team of 6 people will be helping this family construct a small home. I can't do this. The verse that screams out, "Lord, I believe, help my unbelief (Luke 9:24)."
God has often put me in these places. Places where I am humbled and He is glorified. I don't know how it is going to happen, but I am excited to see Him show up and enable these willing hands to do the job. "He who has called you is faithful and HE WILL DO IT" (1 Thess 5:24). Isn't that how faith and trust is.
Your welcome to follow the team as we leave to Guatemala this week. http://www.paradisebound.org/blogs.html
