THE STORY:

¡Hola y Dios bendiga! Or, hello and God bless! I will be heading to Guatemala on a mission trip with a group through Charity Lutheran Church from July 18-29, 2016. My group and I will be working with the God’s Child Project during the trip. The God’s Child Project offers poor children and families in Guatemala a dignifying and permanent way to break out of poverty. The program helps to address both the needs of very poor children and families, as well as the support they need to one day make it on their own. I was blessed enough to go on this trip last year and to say the least, it has thus far been the biggest and best life-changing experience that God has sent my way. The work was tough and demanding, but at the end of the day you had to stand back and thank God for working another miracle in your life. That miracle was Matthew 26:41: “For the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak." God gave us the strength to push through the intensive labor despite how physically weak we were feeling. While there, my team and I will be building homes for the homeless, visiting the children at the orphanage and malnutrition center, going to the homeless shelter, and hopefully holding a clothing/food drive! It would be much appreciated if you would pray for this mission trip experience. Please pray for the 32 of us who are going – that we would be open to the new cultural experiences, that we would love others the way that we are loved, encourage those whom Christ asks us to encourage, and strengthen our relationship with God, listening to Him, and letting His will be done. Pray for the community members who we will meet – that we could love and honor them well, giving back all that we can. Pray especially for the children who we will get to minister to – that they would connect the love we show with the love Jesus has for them. Finally, please pray for me as I learn, grow, and share the love and light of Jesus Christ. Also, I’m still working on fundraising for this trip. Please consider supporting me financially. Any amount is appreciated. Gifts are tax deductible and can be made out to “Charity Lutheran Church” and mailed to: Attn: Guatemala Mission Trip for “my name”, c/o Charity Lutheran Church, 120 Aspen Ave. Bismarck, ND 58503. Thank you for considering supporting me through prayer and/or giving. This trip would be impossible without the generosity of so many. I am beyond excited for this opportunity and am looking forward to sharing about it with you when I return. In Christ, Shyanne Blodgett
