A Day of “Firsts”

As I lay in my bunk here in Guatemala, my mind is filled with all the “firsts” on this mission trip.

For over half the team it is the first mission trip they’ve been on, and about the same amount’s first time out of the United States. It will be the first time some have ever done a community outreach, much less lead one. For me, it’s the first time I’ve had my kids with me on a trip like this, which has always been a dream of mine. It’s the first time I’ve had someone sleep in the room with me that might actually snore louder than yours truly:)

It will be the first time a family has a home all to themselves and a gift built for God’s glory and our Joy.

I know there will be many more as the week goes on. Pray that we have eyes to see where God is moving and they we may have ears to hear his voice direct us.
