The faces of La Limonade

I just started this project today. I was reading about how the Church is the people in it not the buildings they meet in. So i thought that the same is true with La Limonada we can show you the buildings and the poverty but you will really see God through the people of La Limonada. Every face has a story!

More to come. Enjoy!

So God is so good! since i have been down here i have really been seeing how living by faith is the only way to live our lives as Christ followers. This doesn't mean that the road will be easy, most times it means it will be harder than most. Just like climbing a mountin the trip up might be hard but the view at the top will blow your mind! God has taught me that there is no if it happens or I think I might there is when it happens and I will or I wont.  Just trust that God knows what he is doing and you will be amazed at what will come.

three day! i can't believe that its only been three days! Guatemala city is one of the most beautiful places on earth!  i have been in the gehtto for the past two days, there is so much despair but then you walk by the school and all you can hear is the laughing and screaming of the little kids!  The first day we walked around the gehtto, then we went to the school and the kids just jumped all over you asked you to pick them up and then again and again.  We playing fotbal in the street drew with the little ones and just were human jungle gyms. Yesterday we saw a casket being carried by six men. It could have been one of the kids family members. It's just crazy to see what these kids live with on a day to day basis.  Tonight we went up to the "lookout" it was so awesome you could see all of Guatemala!  
Being here really opens your eye to what is really important in life. Like trusting COMPLETELY in God b/c he will provide!!!  I have seen that when you give it all to God how he rewards you! All you really have to do is pray and believe and God does the rest!  I don't think i can ever go back to living the same life i was when i know there are kids that have nothing....
