Emily and I made it safely to Chimaltenango yesterday afternoon. I was just able to get Wi-Fi this morning. Meet these two lovely ladies one named Onan who came in tears concerning baptism. Not that she doesn't agree with the importance of baptism but her nine-year-old son had drowned and a week before he drowned the whole family attended a baptism at the very spot where her church performs the baptisms. She has not wanted to go down in those waters of baptism out of the memory of her son's death. And this child was conceived through a rape situation and at first she struggled even loving him and then he was taken after she grew to love him. We have no idea the pain in the heart ache that lies with in the hearts of many of these beautiful faces. Father help us to be sensitive and to speak of your love and your grace and your mercy of your compassion and healing that are found in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Love you all, Cindy
