Update One

It just hit me the other day that I am leaving in 4 months.

But I’ll start from the beginning!

I’ve always wanted to do mission work, something God placed in me since  I was little. It just felt ‘right’.

Well, 2 years ago, I went down to Guatemala on my first trip,  to Casa Bernabe, (FOCE.org), for 1 month.

And now that I’m out of school,and not planning on going to college at the moment, I wanted to be open to what He had for me.

Then it opened up for me to go back to Guatemala, only this time for 5 months. I’ll be leaving January 1st-June 1st 2017.

I’ll be back at the same orphanage, and planning on helping in the baby home. And while I’m down there, here on this blog is where I’ll be giving updates : )

And I want to ask you to be a part of my journey, to be apart of what God is doing in these people’s lives and how He is working here on earth!

I wrote more about it on my fundraiser page HERE.  (it will eventually be on the side bar of my blog here.)

But above giving, I’m asking you to please pray for this trip and for me. Prayer can make such a huge difference, and it would be such a blessing to me. Pray:

•That I would keep an open heart to learn and be taught
•That God would be at work at Casa Bernabe and in these kids’ AND volunteers’ lives
•For my spiritual and physical strength.
•For safety
•But mostly…that God would be glorified through everything that happens!

  1. Anna, I know God has big plans for you. You are a treasure to behold. Prayers always for you and your family and those precious babies that you will hold in your arms, sing to them, love them and allow them to love and trust in you. God knows exactly what He is doing, placing you there to care for them. God’s blessings for you as you take on this journey.

  2. Anna, we are missionaries in Guatemala and you can be sure I’ll be following your story…and maybe bring you cookies sometime. ☺️ I’m friends with your mom and I’ve been excited about you coming! (((Hugs))) ~Crystal

  3. I will really enjoy reading the updates. 🙂
    I am interested in missions too.
    I was wondering, could you change the background color of your website to have the background white and the words black?
    The grey and white is kind of difficult to read.
    By the way, here is a website that I like, and am using, to learn Español for free!
    http://www.duolingo.com
    God bless you!

    1. Thank you for letting me know, I don’t know if I can change that, but I’ll look into it. And yes, Duolingo has been really amazing 🙂
