The Last day of the clinic was today. We will be heading home tomorrow, starting very early in the morning. It feels odd to be already through this busy week. On the one hand, I am ready to head home. On the other, it will be hard to leave all the team members when we part tomorrow evening. Bonds have been formed that are strong and unique to those who have shared such intense and life changing experiences.

At the beginning of this trip several of us, especially me, were anxious and feeling very inadequate to the task at hand. Seeing God work through both the people of the team and the people we were working with. I am not an outgoing person, but by the end of the week, I felt like I had a new family in Guatemala, a family of sisters and brothers in Christ. This was not an uncommon sentiment for many of us.

I still am inadequate, and most of the time I will probably be anxious in new situations, but I know that God will provide the right person at the right time, He will give me the peace of mind to deal with whatever He needs me to. He might do it with a sense of humor that just eases the tension, or a friend that will patiently teach you how to get the computer to work. Sometimes it means having someone you didn't know days ago, show you that you can grow and learn new things with much joy and even some fun.

We truly serve a wonderful God. Why do we fear and stress and refuse to step out on faith? I guess that is what I learned during this week. Still, I am glad to be going home.
Thanks to all the team, especially those who were in Stevens Point providing behind the scenes work that made all this possible.

God is good!
