"When Helping Hurts"

I am super thrilled because I just ordered a new book. When Helping Hurts: How to Alleviate Poverty Without Hurting the Poor...and Yourself. Author: Corbett, Steve
In on a super strict budget because I am eagerly paying off what I owe to make the move to Guatemala permanent. I still have long ways to go, but I have this renewed faith that I cannot explain. The support of friends have been pouring out like a refreshed waterfall after a drought. I have a prayer, a new dream in my heart and that is to be ready to move in 2014. Where I stand at this point, it is not possible. HOWEVER, God says that anything is possible through Him. I believe it! All I. The name of Jesus! I do not have an ounce of doubt. The mountain has already thrown itself in the ocean. I am beyond thankful to my new Monday night prayer partner, Nuhit. I have not had the chance of meeting her personally, but I know that god has connected us to build our faith in Christ. 

I think a lot about the children at the orphanage, the young girls who will be helped, but most importantly I think about God and the things He will do. The things He will change, how He will change and transform me to the woman He has always intended me to be. Am I still scared? Uh, YES! BUT I Stand before Christ and I say, "be my guide, be my light when I am in the dark, be my love when I feel alone, be my all when I am in need" I trust Him. He has not disappointed me thus far and according to what I have read in the Bible, He will not disappoint.
