Guatemalan News February 2014.
We have really enjoyed our in-home youth group with the girls from Fundaninos. We have come to see each one of them as special and unique to God.
Missionaries, like most people, experience good days, and difficult days. Our ministry is going well. Recently, after a particularly trying day, we had the girls over to our house, and I saw once again the wonderful opportunity that God has given us to help, parent, pastor, love and train these girls. It reaffirmed to me the importance of the calling we have to pour into their lives.
Like all of us, they have sinned and been hurt, they are broken, have been mistreated and abused, they have felt the injustices of life, yet through a desire to be in Christ they are finding redemption and through striving to have Christ in them, they are being sanctified.
Sometimes as I look at my life, and the mistakes and failures I have made, my pride tells me that there is no way that God can use me, yet as I read and study His Word, I find consolation in the fact that it is only because I have been broken that God can use me to help anyone at all.
