After a long time of praying and deciding, last week I finally took the plunge and registered for the trip to Guatemala in July! It still doesn’t feel real, to think that in just over 250 days, I’ll be taking this leap and hopping on a plane to a country I’ve never traveled to before. I love to travel and of course I love working with children and families, as I get to do what I love every day as a teacher. I know this trip will be an amazing experience to merge these two loves while bringing God’s love to the people of Guatemala and becoming closer to Him in a new way myself, as well. I can’t wait to give Evelin a hug in person and tell her how beautiful and loved she is. I can’t wait to go to church and praise God alongside the Guatemalan people. I can’t wait to meet the babies and young mothers of the CSP and hear their stories and share in their hope. I can’t wait for all of it.
So I have some time to expand on my simple Spanish skills and plan and research and shop and pack and let it all sink in. It’s going to be an amazing experience.
