Full Circle

Posted By on Oct 13, 2011 in Compassion Guatemala | 6 comments


It was just over a year ago that I found myself in Guatemala on a blogging trip with Compassion International. I was petrified. I was in over my head. And I was in over my heart.

Before I left I only expressed how deep my fear ran to a handful of friends, but Justin and Trish Davis knew. And they wouldn’t let me depart without gathering their whole family to pray over me.

On one of the last days we were in Guatemala, I was literally brought to tears as I read that the Davises had decided to sponsor a child from Guatemala. You see this wasn’t just any child sponsorship. This wasn’t just a big deal for sweet Joselina. This was a big deal for Trish. She was finally able to redeem a story that had haunted her for more than a decade.

A couple of months later, I was with Trish at the Recreate Conference when she decided to sponsor another Compassion child. And I was with her again a day later, when it was announced that she was the lucky winner of a trip to meet one of her sponsor children.

Finally, this Sunday, Trish leaves for Guatemala. She gets to meet Joselina. Although I am so sad that I can’t be with her to see the joy (and rushing tears) in her eyes as she sees the hope in that little girl’s eyes, although I am so sad that I can’t pop in and surprise sweet little Jenser, I am so excited I get to pray for her trip and follow along with her posts.

Will you join me praying for and reading along with Trish?

Isn’t it cool how the Lord brings things around full circle?
