Compassion Bloggers in Guatemala

Compassion Bloggers: Guatemala 2010

This week there are a team of bloggers traveling, touring and blogging their way through a missions trip with Compassion International to Guatemala.

I absolutely LOVE Compassion and what they do, I also absolutely LOVE Guatemala because that is where our Compassion daughter, Ericka, lives with her family.

In June 2009 my husband and a team from our church went to Guatemala with Compassion and while he was there he had a chance to meet her, visit her school, spend time with her family and even was blessed to take Ericka and her mom to a theme park for the day. 

In the picture above Ericka is holding my husband Matt's hand as they get ready to go into the park, it was the first time Ericka or her mother have ever experienced anything like that.  It was one of his most memorable missions trip and over the last year we, as a family, have been able to watch Ericka grow through letters and pictures.

I can't say it enough...Compassion is an amazing organization.  Take some time to get involved in what they are doing and while you are at it take some time to pray for the team of bloggers that are there right now.

Travel with our team of bloggers to Guatemala September 8-11, 2010. Come here to experience the ministry of Compassion International among the poor of Guatemala for yourself through tweets, posts, pics and videos.
