Ready, set.... GO!!

I can't believe the time has already come... the past few months has been a whirl wind, but as we sit here packed and ready to board our flight tomorrow morning I can't help but to smile as I see God's hand prints all over our journey.

I have no idea what lies ahead but one thing I do know it God is faithful. Through the good and the bad, He is there and He always keeps His promises.

Once again I want to take this opportunity to thank our partners. We are here because of your obedience. We understand the sacrifices you are making and we appreciate it more than you will ever know. We know what you give has nothing to do with us and everything to do with Jesus- and He knows that too. Thank you for extending your love to reach those in Guatemala. As we walk in faith we know you are by our side living out yours as well.... living out The Word. We love you all and we are so thankful to working along side you all for His glory.

Next time I post it will be from Guatemala...

Until then... adios amigos. ;)

Amy and Family, we love y'all dearly and are gonna miss you fiercely. We WILL come stay with y'all on a short-term mission trip just as soon as possible. It'll be amazing to be extra hands and feet serving Him alongside the Blocks, even if it's only for a week. If Travis and Keegan ever need anything while you're away, please holler. We'd be honored to help in any way. And, if you get a hankerin' for some Texas food/spices/mixes or anything you miss that we can get for you, please let us know. We'd love to send you some care packages full of all things Texas, with lots of love! Have a safe trip and keep your eyes on Him. You've got lots of people around the world lifting you up in prayer. I know this won't be an easy transition, but it'll be worth it, as you know. May God pour out His abundant blessings upon you as you serve Him, and may He gift you with the ability to speak and understand Spanish in a way that gives all glory to Him. Love y'all! Big Hugs from every one of the Pattersons!

I can remember writing down your family's departure date months ago, and as I looked at my calendar I get chills knowing your family will be on the plane tomorrow! I have been following your blog (since the rice and beans challenge), and I've been praying for each of you as this day has quickly arrived. May the Lord bless each of you immensely as you follow where He leads and may each of you grow to love Him even more. Leave in peace knowing you are covered in prayer!!
