Good Grief

Sorry I haven’t posted a single thing in an entire week...

It is safe to say that I am broken and grieving our return from Guate.  I have cried at least once every day since we’ve been home.  

I can’t stop thinking about the precious souls we encountered at Hermano Pedro (the hospital in Antigua we visited the last day of our trip).  It’s a government owned orphanage run by the Catholic church for orphans with disabilities.  It is very under staffed and short on volunteers...which translates to, innocent  children who are neglected, malnourished, abused and forgotten.  

Here at this hospital/orphanage...just like at the GC cemetery (posted earlier)...the value of life does not exist.  “Bodies” (alive and dead) are literally thrown away and forgotten in this country.

Please pray as we continue to process and grieve everything we felt, saw and heard...most of the stuff we can’t even mention due to the graphic nature and confidentiality. 

I trust that God will redeem all things in His time...


“So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy.”  John 16:22
