available and obedient

This past weekend we heard our pastor preach on being AVAILABLE and OBEDIENT. The Lord has called our family to serve HIM in Guatemala and we have booked one-way tickets for TEN days from today! 

On June 21st we will step on a plane and travel 2,600 miles away from those we love! While saying goodbye seems impossible, we are excited for the incredible opportunity to share Jesus with those that have been hiding in fear and shame for their entire lives because they are living with HIV/AIDS. There are 380,000 orphaned children in Guatemala who need HOPE... the hope that can be found through Jesus Christ aloneAlthough we sometimes feel inadequate for what He has called us to at Village of Hope, we are available and obedient! It is a scary thing to uproot your family to another country, but we have peace that when we step out in obedience, He will meet all of our needs! 
Yes, You came when I called, You told me, ‘Do not fear’ - Lamentations 3:57.
And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others - 2 Corinthians 9:8
We are asking you, the body of Christ, to step out of the boat with us on this incredible journey. We have sold our home and belongings, and the only possessions we have left on this earth are the few things that will fit in the luggage we can carry on the airplane. 
Would you give sacrificially to be a part of the Lord’s work in Guatemala? In order to leave in 10 days we need to be at 75% of our monthly financial need, but are currently at 54%. That translates to $720 per month or $8,640 for the year. The children of Guatemala need your help... are you available
