Our journey to Guatemala was made complete by the team of beautiful people who joined us. Jean Clark is a pediatric nurse in Florida, and this is our second time to serve together in Guatemala. We’re thankful to share her words today as our guest blogger.

(A message to our team, but we thought we’d share it with everyone because God really does know EACH of your names).

Good Morning Team Guate10! As Ronne and I prepare to head out this morning, I wanted to share with you something that Jesus spoke to me this morning.  He knows each member of our team by name. He knows our strengths, our weaknesses, our fears, and the number of breaths we’ll take today.  Each step of our journey has been paved with His blood and we can take personally His instructions to “fear not.” During the next two days as you prepare to depart know that Ronne and I are praying for you, and that your way has already been prepared.


I woke up with this song playing in my head. I think it’s for you. Today.

So many precious people have assisted us here in Texas with our duffle bag goodies for the orphans and caregivers we will serve while in Guatemala. You have filled our hearts!
