"Many of my children who live in impoverished nations are more joyful than Christians in "rich" countries with material abundance. Even the greatest blessings can fail to bring Joy unless they are received with gratitude."
We again witnessed the joy and happiness of the people of Guatemala. The people expect so little yet have so much to give from their hearts and their spirits. Family is the focus of their lives. We witnessed the love between parents and their children, between brothers and sisters, grandparents caring for children and grandchildren and immense respect for the elderly.
The lines were long and the heat was intense yet these people continued to wait with immense patience and kindness. They were grateful for everything which made our jobs so rewarding. ----Cathy.
