Anyone can love when it’s easy; but, it’s how we respond when things are hard, that truly demonstrates the heart of God. Serving orphans and vulnerable children in Guatemala, we have had to figure out how to do this right.
While you probably know that we serve children and adults with PMLD (profound multiple learning disabilities), we wanted to take a moment to inform you of the intricacies of our work, why there is a need and what our work looks like day in and day out.
We live in a broken world. We are surrounded by need on every side. The world of non-profits, NGO’s and charities is bigger than ever. All over the globe children are hungry, orphaned and abused or lacking an education. Everywhere you look there is some noble cause to get involved with.
With all this need and potential to work in what some might consider more rewarding ministries. Why then have we chosen to serve those with disabilities?
Why do you teach girls carpentry? Are there any jobs for women carpenters in Guatemala? Is there a market for the things you are making? Are they capable of doing this on their own? What happens one day if you are gone?
