Answered Prayers in Guatemala

Yesterday I got really frustrated with some 2 year olds because they would not sit still or listen to ANYTHING I said to them in Spanish. It was our first day to work with them and they were not yet comfortable yet... but I learned some lessons from this experience:

1) God didnt call me to childrens minstry... but He did call me to work with them this week.
2) God answers prayers... no matter what they are.

I shared my frustration with my team last night and prayed that God will help me to communicate better with the kids... and TODAY WAS AMAZING!! I spoke alot of spanish with them and they listened, followed the commands, and behaved! It was so great.

A few verses have been brought to my attention that I wanted to share with you...

"May all the God of hope fill you with all the joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." (Romans 15:13)

"For you have not received a Spirit that makes you a slave to fear, but you received the spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, Abba Father. The Spirit himslef testifies with our spirit that we are Gods children." (romans 8: 15-16)

As we have been working with orphans... who have come from some really sad situations... its great to remind myself that we are all His children... we all have a Father we can call on for help in any situation... and He is a Father who can do all - because He created all.

Please continue to pray for us as we pour into these kids and receive so many blessings from them. I know God is working in my life and Im excited to see what else He has in store for this trip.
