Orphan Care – Beyond Orphanages, serving for a lifetime. Lessons about orphan care from a missionary in Guatemala. When does our ministry end? When do we check someone we have been serving off our list and consider them “mission accomplished”? All too often in many orphanages and children’s homes, the moment they walk out the door they are forgotten.
Anyone can love when it’s easy; but, it’s how we respond when things are hard, that truly demonstrates the heart of God. Serving orphans and vulnerable children in Guatemala, we have had to figure out how to do this right.
Happenings in Guatemala, October 2016. This month we were blessed to have a visit from F.I.R.E. missionaries in Mexico who now our supervisors. We appreciated their insight and they were a great encouragement to us. We are still here and carrying on with our work, so I guess we passed the test and get keep being missionaries.
