One year ago yesterday, we moved to Guatemala.
Today, one year ago, I was sobbing like a baby. Jackson was screaming. John was depressed. The dogs were playing dead.
Talk about culture shock.
I was looking for any excuse whatsoever to leave. Seriously.
Sadly, I could not come up with one.
I learned in that first week just how selfish I was. I learned how pathetic I was and how the only good things that come from me, are actually from God.
I learned what it was like to depend on God for my joy.
I say all of this to explain how good God is. I was desperately depressed.
Now, I have so much joy in being here. I love these kids. We are doing what God wanted us to do.
He has brought us through the dark time and shined his light on us. He is a good good God and we are so blessed to live part of our lives with these wonderful people.
Here is a list that John made. It is really so good, and I want to add 100 things to it.
Reader: Whoa. Whoa. Sarah. This is a blog about oils. I want to read about oils.
Well, cut me a little slack reader. I have lived in a third world country for a year now, and would like to talk about it a bit. OK?
Reader: Fine. I guess.
(I'm starting to wonder if I have multiple personalities. I am doing this writer/reader combo way to quickly in my head. It's almost like there is really someone else talking.....)
As we hit the one year mark of living in Guatemala, I decided that I want to capture every feeling that I don’t want to lose upon returning to the United States in 2015. A little reminder to never forget…
Thank you for playing such a vital role in this mission. To God be the glory!
John, Sarah, and Jackson
