God's Definition

Wow…6 days! 6 days and I will be in Guatemala.

This weekend I purchased the last of my supplies.

Bug Spray…check.

Long Pants…check.

Passport…check.

One thing I wish I could say I was taking with me is the Spanish language. This “poor Mexican”, what my husband calls me, wishes I soaked up every word my great-grandparents and grandparents spoke.  We’ve been watching some Telenovelas (Spanish soap operas) to help me recognize the words again but as always I’ll understand better than speak the language.

All kidding aside, to say I’m excited is an understatement.  The last few days and the rest of this week I’ve been preparing my heart, asking God His definition of contentment. Asking Him what his definition of loving others looks like.

One of our Team Leaders with Food for the Hungry wrote this beautiful post.  Seeing the images like these that she posted of her last trip showed the realness of some of the communities we will be going into.

I am humbled to be a part of this journey with some rock star bloggers such as Raechel Meyers, Darrell and Allison Vesterfelt, and Sarah Matheny.  Follow our trip as we discuss our travels, the work that Food for the Hungry does and opportunities how you can get involved.

Until next time. (Hasta manana!)
