...a Faithful Father who is in control

Dear Lord, please be with the people of Guatemala who have lost their homes or family members due to these natural disasters. I pray that you will please keep the team safe as they travel to San Salvador tomorrow. I also pray that you would hold the children in Your hand, keeping them all safe. I ask that you would give comfort, and draw people to Yourself during this time, to bring You the glory. I praise You for Your faithfulness.

"Not infrequently our God brings His people into difficulties on purpose that they may come to know Him as they could not otherwise do. Then He reveals Himself as a "very present help in time of need..." -Hudson Taylor

The Lord is faithful in all His words and kind in all His works.
-Psalm 145:13b

Please pray for the people of Guatemala during this time.


  1. What a beautiful young woman you are. I know that you do not remember me, but I am so in awe of the person that you have grown up to be. You inspire me greatly with the Light that just beams from you as you write of your passion for sharing Christ through missions. I will keep you and your team in my prayers daily. Sherrie (Cook) D'Arelli (your nanny many years ago).

  2. To hear that he kept many from being harmed even after the sinkhole fell was great news. What an answer to prayer! I am thankful that he is faithful and kind in all his works. I am thankful that you have been faithful to his call for you this summer!

    I will continue to pray for you all as you are there. Hope and pray that you have an open door to share the gospel with every child and adult there. Also hope to talk to you soon!

    Until then,
