Guatemala, October 28th – November 3rd, 2017; Trip Update 1

Deanna BerkesGuatemala, Mission Trip Update

Our team arrived in Guatemala coming from vastly different backgrounds and walks of life but united by the desire to serve others.

As we began to explore the beauty of Guatemala we were embraced by brilliant colors, beautiful people, and glorious terrain all wonderfully unfamiliar.

Each smiling face greeted us without hesitation and enchanted us with their melodious language.

Filled with the love of Christ and wonder at His creation we were glad to arrive at the Malnutrition Center so that we might be able to pour that love into the children.

Although we know little Spanish, we spoke a common language of giggles, tickles, smiles, clapping, and dancing that the children understood as love.

As we learn about their personalities and enjoy their snuggles we pray for the families that left them in our care.

It is a blessing to be able to minister to these families by letting these children know that they are special, they are wonderfully made, and they are loved beyond measure.
