Bags Packed & Ready to Go!!

We are finally packed and ready to go. I ‘think’ I have everything packed. That’s the problem with packing as you get time—you forget what you’ve packed! But I ‘think’ I remembered everything!
Also...the guest house now has wifi...so I am hoping to update and blog each night about our day!
We’ve got all of our donations packed and our stuff is intermingled throughout. The huge duffle on the right is lovingly referred to as ‘the body bag.’ It is huge and awkward to carry but allows you to cram a lot of stuff into it!

We also were given enough funds to get at least 15 19!! food baskets!!!
Thank you friends for donating for that and for first aid supplies! We are truly blessed and thankful! (you can still jump in if you’d like ! They are $20 a basket—email me at gcknight@verizon.net by 6 today)
How to pray for us:
1) Pray that God will be honored and blessed in all that we do. Pray that we will flexible and quick to hear His voice and the Spirit’s prompting.
2) Pray for our safety.
3) Pray that we will know more of God through this trip.
I was reflecting on the trip the other day and praying that we would each have the right attitude and motivation. God spoke to my heart as I prayed. So often we do things as wanting to help—which isn’t necessarily wrong. But sometimes that can come off as us being ‘above the people.’ or better than them—and we are not. Just born into a different set of circumstances.
I want to go as a servant. A sister in Christ coming to serve the people of Guatemala for 1 week.
May God grants us love and compassion and eyes to see what He sees. May He break our hearts for what breaks His. May He change us---to be more like Him.
