I didn't have to go to the place where I was expecting to see Him move, to see Him move.
He is just as powerful here. Just as good here.
The same amazing God here.
At the end of March, due to varying circumstances, I realized I would be able to go on a trip that was planned to Guatemala by my father to install irrigation and water purification for the Seeds of Tomorrow Project that is up and going at Impact Ministries. I was actually at the airport, coming back from a short trip to see my sister for her birthday when I realized I could go. I honestly cannot describe the joy that filled my heart in that moment - and still continues to!
So in an hour, I leave for the airport with an amazing group of guys... my boyfriend and a few of our friends from our Community Group are flying to Houston where we will be meeting up with my dad, sister, and a few of my dad's colleagues who helped donate the water systems.
I do not know what I will all be doing on this trip; however, I do know that God is calling me to rest.
To rest in Him.
Guatemala is a place for me that the veil between heaven and earth is smaller. Where I feel God move in mighty ways. Where I see His hand at work. Where I see the battle between good and evil so vividly. Where the Truth is completely changing lives, families, and whole communities.
And so I am going with an open and expectant heart.
A heart that desires to rest in His presence.
To grow closer to Him and more sensitive to His Spirit.
A heart that desires to stop carrying my own burdens and rest in Him - for it is His yoke that is easy and burden that is light.
I will do my best to keep you updated with what our team gets up to in Guatemala and how God is working in our lives - however, I may not be able to do this until we are back. But I will do what I can. Thank you for keeping us in your prayers.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” - Matthew 11:28-30
