Back from a life changing trip!

June 9, 2010

I haven’t been working the last week or so because our family participated in a life changing event.  Our oldest son, Sam, was born in Guatemala and we’ve been wanting to go back for awhile now.  We traveled back to Guatemala to visit our sweet sponsored daughters at Casa Bernabe orphange.  We were able to love on them, play with them….and most importantly show Jesus to them with our love.

We made it home safely, and I’m not doing well. I’m having such a hard time being back. We are back to luxury, back to “comfort”, back to our home, back to our normal lives. We are forever changed by the sweet faces of the kids at Casa Bernabe. We are humbled by the staff of Casa Bernabe and their willingless to serve these kids 365 days a year. We are emotional, we are wrecked, we are changed. We have SEEN and now we will never be the same.

We are so thankful for the wonderful house parents that live at Casa Bernabe and take care of the kids. We are thankful that we were able to spend time getting to know Linett from the baby house. We see her passion and love for our girls and the rest of the babies there. While it was excruciating to leave them, we are comforted knowing that she’s there loving on them for us. Thank you Linette. We love you for what you are doing in the lives of these children!

Brandon was talking with the dentist at Casa Bernabe and he said that he was one breath away from saying, “I’m selling my practice and coming to live here”!! It’s just THAT kind of place.

We are praying for another opportunity to return soon and love on the kiddos some more.

I’m sure that I’ll have more to say as time goes on, and as I process my experience. For now, all I know is that I’m wrecked…..in a good way….and that’s enough for now.
