How I found my purpose in Caroline’s Promise

It’s hard to find the words for my first mission trip. It’s even harder to find the words to describe my incredible experience. 

I was clueless when it came to mission trips and I had no idea what I was getting myself into.  I didn’t know what my purpose was on the trip. “What is God’s plan for me?” I asked myself as we took off for Guatemala. 
Soon enough, God showed me that I was supposed to be where I was. 

Immediately after landing in Guatemala, I felt the amount of love and care that Caroline’s Promise gives the people of Guatemala. Children would swarm our team giving hugs, smiles
and waves. They were so grateful and excited we had arrived.  

From our girls retreat, helping promote self-love, and trusting the Lord to teaching the younger kids about the importance of The Armor of God, every minute was precious.  I never knew so much could be accomplished in a week. 

It was amazing to watch Ruth, Valerie and Melissa teach the women of Florecer how to support themselves and their families through hand-making products such as bags and home decor items.  But it was even more fun to spend the days with their children, loving them, laughing with them and learning all about their adventures. 

Looking back, I don’t know how I could ever question my purpose on the mission trip. God had a plan for us all on this trip and he taught me not to fear difference or change because he has a plan and purpose for us all.
