Guatemala is a beautiful country filled with beautiful people. Right now, I am a bit ticked with Guatemala because our amazing and wonderful babysitter is moving there and loving on orphans. Geesh, the nerve! 🙂
Roughly 370,000 precious Guatemalan children long for a mom and dad to kiss their boo-boos, hug them, and tuck them in at night. The Ucherek is trading in their hamburger and french fries for chiles rellnos to love on some of these beautiful children, work with Manna Worldwide, and to love on the community.
God has called them to go, but they need our help in raising the first $20,000 in funds needed. PLEASE go here and make a donation. Even if you can’t do $25, every single dollar helps. Yes, this is for a giveaway (and if you don’t have TOMS, you should, they are comfy and someone else half way around the world will wear a pair because of you) but regardless each of us skipping our morning java, afternoon happy hour, or whatever could make a difference we may never know of this side of heaven.
Even if you don’t feel the Lord leading you towards adoption, we are all called to defend the fatherless and to look after the widows and orphans, here’s a great chance to do just that!!!
