Well folks, we have been living in Guatemala for nearly a year now and as Christmas approaches we are looking forward to heading back to the states in December to spend the holidays with family and friends (and a little snow wouldn't hurt). In many ways this year has been a difficult one for us, but we have learned a lot and encountered so many wonderful people with a passion for Christ and his mission. For those of you who don't know, our family will be entering a new phase in our journey this coming February when we will be moving to Paraguay to direct a Christian facility for abandoned children. It was in Guatemala that we discovered God's love for hurting children and our passion to serve these children continues to grow.
That being said, please keep our family in your prayers through this transition period and remember to take the time this holiday season to consider those around you who are hurting and may not be able to find a reason to celebrate.
peace and joy,
Shaun and Sara
