KVNE Guatemala Mission Trip – Day 5

Today is the last day for our team at the Little House of Refuge. We spent the morning finishing up projects and spending as much time as we could with the kids. Joe, one of our KVNE listeners on the team, spent all morning grilling chicken for their lunch, and for these children it was a feast they rarely get here at the orphanage. Yesterday I shared that I would be meeting my sponsor child, Lupita. She’s in the 9th grade, love school and loves to read. With the help of one of our team members who speaks Spanish I was able to share with her that I was her sponsor. I’ll never forget the way her face lit up as she gave me a big hug. Meeting her being able to be a small part of her life was truly the highlight of this trip for me. As we left that evening, many of us had questions about the future of these kids. One of our interpreters Paola reminds us in our evening devotion that they are going to be OK. Each one of these precious children is going to be OK because God is with them through every circumstance. She reminds us that this trip was not about us, it wasn’t about the kids. It was about God, and that we need to keep Him at the center of our lives. We had an evening of sharing, and just listening as we went around the room it was so clear that God not only worked in the hearts of the kids but he’s been working in our hearts too.
