Growing Pains at Birthing Center in Oaxaca, Mexico
Article submitted by Lila Quezada, Field Coordinator in Mexico
Here at Casa Compasiva we are experiencing our own version of growing pains. Things are going so well on so many levels (God has done a beautiful work!), but at the same time we are being forced to grow and stretch in so many areas at the same time. It is good growth, but it is so rapid that it is sometimes exhausting, and we don’t even have the option of stopping.
For example, in order to achieve compliance with such-and-such government regulation, we must develop such-and-such a system first, which requires the implementation of such-and-such a program, which is dependent on such-and-such a project already being in place. You get the picture?
We don’t have the luxury of growing slowly; we must advance on many fronts all at the same time!
The result? Casa Compasiva staff members currently have “aching bones” as we all try to make sense out of our shifting roles and struggle to catch up with new requirements and systems. It hurts the most “when it’s raining”– when misunderstandings and relational strains occur from lack of time to communicate and process all the changes.
So all of this is to say: we need your prayers! Please hold us before the throne and ask for God’s peace and comfort as we go through these growing pains.
