God does some truly amazing things. When we flew back from Guatemala and we were saying our last goodbyes, I felt the need to pray with my team for one last time. We all prayed and sang together outside of our hotel and tears rolled down my face as I thought of the amazing two weeks I had just experienced. I could not have asked for a better group of people to serve with. 


When Jaala and I were flying home to the Great White North, our flight was delayed but I couldn’t help but feel at peace because I felt like I was meant to be there. Then we met Kay. She struck up a conversation with us as we were waiting for our plane and at first we anticipated a quick polite talk with a sweet older woman. We told her we had just been serving in Guatemala and she told us she was also Christian. We got talking about her life and some struggles she had been through in the past few weeks. Kay then shared some bible verses with us (psalms 100 and 103) and told us they helped her remember that God has a plan. She told us about her faith and how she truly believed all would be well through Christ. 


I asked Kay if we could pray over her and she did the same for us. She was the first person I prayed for out loud outside of my team and it felt amazing. She had such a fun laugh and positive attitude. I didn’t know how much I needed this reassurance. I was afraid I would not be able to minister to people the same way I did in Guatemala, so God placed Kay in my path so that I could know I am entirely capable of sharing my faith with others, even if I feel some initial fear in my heart. Kay was exactly what I needed & I believe I may have been what Kat needed as well. 


All these things and more are possible through Him.
