Guatemala Trip

I'll be in Guatemala from June 25th - July 3rd on a mission trip with Caroline's Promise.  I cannot wait to see the ways that God is going to use our team to be His hands and feet among his children in Guatemala!  If you'd like updates about the trip, visit the Caroline's Promise blog:

Please pray for our team: for health, good weather, safety and, most of all, that God is glorified in everything we do.  Also, please pray for our families who are back at home.  I know that my husband, kids and mother would definitely appreciate your prayers.
