The Lord is transforming me into someone who doesn’t fear compassion. He is transforming me to be someone who can dive in full force—love people with everything in me.
The Lord gave me sight in El Sal... I learned that I can endure difficult situations. I learned that I have an amazing team around me. I heard stories that broke my hearts from the people I would now consider my family.
The way he has softened my heart has given me this abundance of compassion for all those around me, all those who are hurting and are weak, all of the children we serve, all of the widows we meet, and every person I see.
I am learning to deny myself so that I can give my all to the kids that need attention, love, food, and water. I am so blessed to be learning with these Ugandans at G.O.D. who have been learning the bible for almost twenty years.
I’ve laughed, cried, danced— I’ve poured out every ounce of energy while serving and then leaned on the lord for more and received it. It hasn’t always been easy, but nothing compares to the joy I’ve felt using every gift God’s given me to it’s fullest extent.
The Lord changed my entire view of what caring for people looks like and how sometimes while we have the best intentions for helping other we need to turn to the word of God and know that the things that will make the biggest impact need to be lasting,
