Last year I was blessed to participate in a life changing experience . I was able to go on my first mission trip to the country of Guatemala.
I went with an organization called Global Ventures led by an awesome husband and wife team, John and Martine Smithwick.
During the ten days we were there I met some wonderful people who I still consider great friends to this day but the thing that made it even more awesome was the fact that I was able to tap into some skills that I didn’t even know I possessed. I got to sing, I preached, and I even danced a little (very little).
The part that made it even more wonderful was knowing that I was able to make an impact in sombodies life and show them that someone does care about them and that Jesus loved them enough to send a crazy woman from Augusta, GA down to let them know of his goodness and mercy.
Now of course you don’t have to go to another part of the world to let someone know how special they are. You can do that right where you are.
Start with your neighbor, or your co-worker. If you are a student try one of your classmates or even your best friend.
I hope you have a Happy Monday.
P.S. Here is a video of some of our group auditioning to entertain the crowds before the crusades were started. I hope you enjoy the footage of some of the truly talented people I was able to meet. I’m in the footage too but please don’t judge my lack of talent. LOL
