Giving thanks.

Undies for Orphans!

Duffle bags are being filled in Maryland, Florida and Texas.  They will be emptied in Guatemala City, Quetzaltenango (Xela), Santiago, and Antigua.

As go those duffle bags, so will go hearts.  Filled and emptied.  The only difference between the two is that, unlike the duffle bags, the filling and emptying of hearts will happen simultaneously – and repeatedly.

So many precious people have assisted us here in Texas with our duffle bag goodies for the orphans and caregivers we will serve while in Guatemala. You have filled our hearts!

Every caregiver will receive sweet-smelling treats.

If you gave supplies – thank you. If you gave cash for powdered milk, cereal, kitchen equipment – thank you. If you were one of the many area dentists who donated toothbrushes and toothpaste – thank you. If you gave your time to help collect – thank you.

School supplies!

I read a quote in a blog this week that God has given us everything we need – He just doesn’t distribute it.  He uses people to be His hands and feet in this world.  What an honor it is that He would choose us to serve others.

Thank you for being “distributors.”

Never walk away from someone who deserves help; your hand is God’s hand for that person. ~Prov.3:27
