Happy Thanksgiving!!

Since living in Guatemala, my eyes have been opened to how blessed I am. I have so much to be thankful for. I pray that I take them time to say thank you everyday, not just on Thanksgiving.

“We learned that orphans are easier to ignore before you know their names. They are easier to ignore before you see their faces. It is easier to pretend they’re not real before you hold them in your arms. But once you do, everything changes.” – Radical by David Platt.

Orphan Sunday

They are not just statics.

They are real.

I see them every day.

I play with them, I laugh with them, and I listen to their hope and dreams and goals.

Just like the ones you and I have.

They may live across the world from you...

Or next door...

Or maybe you're like me, and can hear their feet running on the floor above you as you type,

Wherever they are,

They are a person...

With hopes and dreams and goals.

Will you help bring them hope in Him?

By advocating, by giving, by going, by loving, by telling.

There's a need. What will you do to change it?
