Here I go again!

It's D-Day again! I leave today for Guatemala, with a team from The Well. It promises to be a really fulfilling and exciting trip, especially since my 15-year old daughter gets to experience the joys of serving others through a mission trip for the first time in her life. I am also thrilled at the opportunity to be able to experience God's love through the eyes of another culture. I pray that our team will be extensions of His hands and heart. I pray that we will remember that we are not the 'experts' but simply tools in the 'Master Builders' hands. I pray that we will remember that it is more blessed to give than it is to receive. But most of all, I pray that we will always be reminded of the privilege we have to live in a nation that makes it possible for us to serve others. I truly am looking forward to the 'adventure' that God has in store for us, and I look forward to giving you daily (depending on several factors) updates from the road. Watch this space, and if you get bored watching, then spare a moment to say a prayer for our team.
