Guat’s Up (I didn’t make it up)

WOW!!!!Mind and Spiritually blown is an understatement when it comes to the last couple of days. So tickled by  the way I have learnt and grown over the course of my trip. Before I get carried away, lets just put it out there: I’m back from Guatemala. As I lay in bed, at 12:11 AM, I am still in awe over the things that God in doing in Guatemala and the things He has restored, started and birthed in my life. I am looking forward to sharing some of that as I process the trip over the next couple of weeks but for now, here are a couple of pictures.

Watch this space for processing reflections. Can’t wait to share all that God did in  my life in Guatemala

“God, my shepherd!
    I don’t need a thing.
You have bedded me down in lush meadows,
    you find me quiet pools to drink from.
True to your word,
    you let me catch my breath
    and send me in the right direction.” Psalm 23:1 – 3 [MSG]
