There is a celebration in heaven this morning!
Our final devotion time together was last night and what a powerful one it was. We had the honor of worshiping and praying over Wendi and her family last night before she left for the U.S. with Dan. She will be in Indiana for her surgery and we will continue to keep her in our prayers throughout her treatment.
Our entire week was spent in preparation for last night. The Holy Spirit was at work in the place and everyone will forever be changed. Each person had their own experience last night but all praise be to our Father because everyone nailed something to the cross last night. Many left their name there for the first time and the rest left a sin that has been washed away. God has been victorious this week!
We leave this morning with mixed emotions. What a blessing it has been to see the Holy Spirit working in such a personal way for everyone. This is such a beautiful place, we were greeted with an amazing sun rise over the mountains this morning. God is with us!
God bless and we can’r wait to see everyone tonight. Especially 3 little guys!

Today we dedicated our houses and today I get to remember my grandpa as he was a caring man with a big heart but now that hes gone there’s a big hole in my heart it hurts. I know that i will see him one day but i miss him so much. Today we all cried we all felt the spirit run through us as we said to the family that we loved them and that we would miss them and we hoped they would enjoy the house and that we would see them all some day in a few years. Even though i’m hurting i know that the family is happy with their new home and that we know we all will miss them and we will see them again some day.
Our God is so amazing and He is in control of all. Today we dedicated our houses and give God all of the praise because all 5 families accepted Christ. We also had some of our own team members get down on their knees and accept Christ as well! We have been in a spiritual battle for souls but God is victorious. We are all humbled and exhausted from the past couple of days but there is a tremendous feeling of peace in the group now.
We will meet for devotions this evening and tomorrow night will be our final time together here in Guatemala. Be in continuous pray that walls will be broken and hearts changed as there are still some on our team that need to find Christ.
Thank you to everyone for all of the prayers and support. We can certainly feel the difference.

Houses are complete! Five houses in two days, the teams did amazing. Tomorrow we will head back to the village and dedicate each house to our amazing Lord and share the gospel with each family. The past couple of days have been physically exhausting but tomorrow will me spiritually exhausting. As we enter in to tomorrow please be in prayer for sickness. The enemy clearly has an agenda so please pray for healing for the group so that everyone will be able to attend the dedications. Pray also for our families, that their hearts would be ready for tomorrow. Our God has been doing some pretty awesome things but there is so much more to come!
We finally fished our houses and we had a great time doing it. I played with some kids and almost got a headache. My head hit a soccer ball so much i think i would of had a concussion we got back and we are all tired. I’m having fun and i did get burned yesterday and it hurt my neck still has a burning felling. Though i have made a lot of new friends and i’m hoping to stay friends with everyone. I miss everyone back home and i can’t wait to see them on Friday. I truly miss being in my own bed but I’ve been sleeping well i’m still going to be tired for a few days when i get home. Hope to see everyone soon and talk about this trip. I miss and love you all. Love, Lindsay
