.compassion in guatemala.

.compassion in guatemala.  Yesterday four bloggers left for a trip that I am sure will forever change their lives.  They are part of Compassion Internationals blogger team and are learning about those in Guatemala by first hand experience.  They are going to be seeing the difference Compassion really makes in the lives of the children and families there.  I know that mission trips impact lives, even if they are short.  I know that spending one day in another country can be eye-opening.  It can change you.  It does change you. 

Please follow the blogs with me and let your hearts be open to change.  Please also pray for these bloggers, their families, and all who support them.  Pray especially for their safety while in Guatemala.  There has been severe flooding lately and massive mud-slides.  Pray that they stay safe as they are on this life changing journey. 

If you don't know anything about Compassion... let me tell you a little.  Compassion is a Christian child advocacy ministry that helps to release children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty so that they may become responsible Christian adults.  They help more then 1 million children in 26 countries.  Compassion is amazing at what they do.  My husband and I sponsor a child in Ghana, Michael.  We love getting letters from him & have loved watching him grow throughout the past four years.  Honestly it means so much to us that we are able to sponsor him and help his family.  Sponsorship doesn't cost a lot ($38.00 a month) and you get so much in return. Consider sponsoring a child today.  .compassion in guatemala.

We also sponsor a child in Ghana (among other countries) and just love getting letters and photos from them. Compassion has changed our lives in SO many ways. Thanks for spreading the word about the Blogger trip!
