Tonight, we have full bellies from a lovely last-night meal in Antigua…and we’re mindful of the Guatemalan children whose bellies are rumbling.
Our minds are consumed with thoughts about baggage weight limits, last-minute souvenir shopping at the airport, setting our alarms for OMG:30…and we’re mindful of Guatemalan pastors whose thoughts are only about the families whom they serve.
Our hearts are full of anticipation as we think about meeting back up with our friends and family back home…and we’re mindful of Guatemalan parents who ache with worry for their children’s today, let alone their tomorrow.
Our bodies are pleasantly weary from a solid week of expending physical, mental, and emotional energy…and we’re mindful of the Guatemalan teachers who pour out their lives for their students — day after day after day — in conditions no American school board would allow.
Our prayer is that we don’t lose this mindfulness…that we carry around with us what we’ve seen, heard, learned, and experienced. So, don’t be surprised if we’re a bit — or a lot — different. Don’t be surprised if we can’t exactly explain it at all.
And don’t be surprised if we ask you to come see for yourself.
