This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Guatemala

Been catching up with DD after her return from Guatemala. She had a very memorable and meaningful time. She is glad to be home enjoying (and seeing with new eyes) all the conveniences we so often take for granted. Yet, she was sad to leave her new friends and carries with her the image of all the work left to be done.



While there her team laid the cinder block walls for a house for a family whose home was lost in a mudslide. The family was especially appreciative as the father suffers from epilepsy and was not able to do the building work himself. She also has many stories and memories of the children she taught, played with and came to love.



I think she has a greater understanding of how one person can really make a difference in the life of another (both physically and eternally). Since day one at college she has been encouraged to be a "world changer" and I think she now really believes that she can be! (Notice any proud parents around here? LOL)



Have a Wonder-filled Wednesday!
