It all started when ... I signed up because I had wanted to travel internationally and I had never been on a foreign missions trip. After a year or so of being on Liquid's waiting list for a clean water trip, I was selected for the August trip. I knew this was a once in a lifetime opportunity and I feel like God confirmed that I could go on the trip because I was available to go and I received a generous scholarship from my church (liquidchurch.com) to go on the mission.
It all started when ... My uncle told my family he would sponsor any of us who wanted to go on this mission trip to Guatemala with him. My Granddad had done a trip with Living Water before in Guatemala and when he came home and shared his stories; I had really wanted to go on a trip to Guatemala with Living Water. I enjoyed getting to know ... All the people in the village, and the in-country Living Water team.
It all started when .... When I was approached at Church because I had expressed an interest in doing a mission trip. I enjoyed getting to know .... The in-country team were amazing, we shared our belief in GOD, food, hard work and lots of laughter. The people in the community were awesome as well, very welcoming and accommodating. Lastly, the team of volunteers, I think we will forever be connected because of this experience.
I enjoyed getting to know.... The community members and the new incountry staff. Things that challenged and changed me.... The community and the joy they have. The example they set with there community and family. I will never forget... The kids and and having a great time drilling with the men of the community.
It all started when..... A friend from church shared her experience with Living Water. I was really touched by her testimony and it began to really weigh on my heart. After a lot of prayer, God was directing me and my husband to join them on this trip. I had no idea that this trip would be as life changing as it was.
