The group has been discussing anticipation, anxiety and the uneasiness that comes with the unknown.  We are many times faced with set backs and disappointments when we can not do, or have what we want. God provides us with new opportunities and blessings in theses times when things don’t go “our way” that we would not have otherwise experienced. 

As I saw the sun newly risen over the mountains and the river briskly flowing below I am reminded of the opportunities awaiting this week for our team.  We begin our work week with the team and face many unknowns and pray that new opportunities await!  

The words come to mind from the Matt Redmon song 10,0000 reasons. 

The sun comes up it’s a new day dawning, it’s time to sing your song again, whatever may pass and whatever lies before me, let me be singing when the evening comes.  

May we sing your song as we begin this day and our work in Guatemala!
