indiscriminate acts of kindness.

13 people from 7 states join 4 people from Guatemala on a single journey. And God shines.

I am so very thankful for the little family He crafted in Cliff, Tricia, Christie, Deann, Grace, Kellory, Stacey, Caitlin, Jon, Amy, Natalie, Gloria, Pablo, Cesar, Julia, and my best friend (and amazing trip leading partner) Courtney.  I’m thankful for the care provided to the discarded at Pequeno Refugio and Mi Especial Tesoro. I’m thankful for ministries like Orphan Outreach that are passionate about the cause of the orphan. And I’m thankful for the stranger in Antigua who stretched my faith by asking to join our team for prayer – though she didn’t fully understand what we were doing, she wanted to be part of what we had. She reminded me to always be praying for strangers, and always be prepared to pray with them.

“When you took your chances it was like you placed a bet
And sometimes this is the reward you can get
I was always taught when you see someone defiled
You should look them in the eye and smile
Take their hand or better still, take them home.

Consider it an indiscriminate act of kindness.”

  1. Incredible. Thanks so much to all of you for your ministry and for sharing so that we can have just a small taste of your experience. And I love that you characterized these works as “indiscriminate” acts of kindness vs. the ever-popular “random”. After seeing this video I’m thinking that there was absolutely nothing random about any of this. God’s grace and love radiate from every image. Richest blessings on you all, the servants and the served…..

  2. Beautiful! Thank you, Ronne, for threading these amazing pictures together for others to see. God has given you a beautiful gift 🙂 Thanks for sharing. I love you, sister. T.

  3. Amazing Visio Ronnie. I just visited both programs and they were so blessed by your visit. Your team demonstrated in a real way the love of Christ that has made a significant difference in the lives of the children. No words can express my thankfulness for each member of the team!! God bless each of you and your faithfulness to serve and glorify our Savior!
