    Hi Miss Brittany! I am so excited for you! I am sure that you will have a grand adventure, just remember to be open to whatever God brings your way and when in doubt, pray. I am praying for all of you. Can’t wait to hear the stories and see the pictures next weekend!

    There is no doubt you are having the time of your life. My prayer for you is that this helps solidify your heart for missions. You have a huge heart for the lost, and I pray you are able to help bring some of God’s children back to him through this experience. Have a great time (I know you will). Go Get em girl!!

    Hey Everyone! 😀
    Thank you so much for all your support & prayers! I am having a blast here in Guatemala, I’ve learned so much already about the different culture and more about myself! The hardest part is keeping everything sanitary! But the best part is the kids! Watching them chase the vans everyday yelling for candy, and seeing their happy faces, their smiles are so contagious! Oh and the landscape is unreal!!! There are volcanoes right outside our window, and yesterday one spewed smoke!!!! Once again thanks, and I can’t wait to see you all again and share my stories!

    Brittany 😀

    Hi Brittany!
    It’s perfect beach weather here – now that the storm has passed over, and I can’t help but wonder what the folks there would think of our beaches and lives here. You will forever be the face of something spectacular for them, so remember to smile through the tears when it comes to say Goodbye and leave the babies there! TSA doesn’t like finding children in suitcases of crazy missionary kids!! Love you tons!

  27. Lynn Albachten says:

    Good morning everyone – The Lord is blessing the Allendale area with a much needed storm, rain, wind, thunder and lightening. Awesome!! Thinking and praying for all of you on your last day in paradise. So proud of everyone for taking God’s leading and sharing the love of Christ with so many wonderful and beautiful people in Guatemala. Thank you all for sharing little bits and pieces of your adventure. You have been such a blessing to all of us back in the states. The world has been a better place because of your trip, due to all of us praying for you and your trip. So many more prayers have been prayed in the last week than usual. Praise the Lord! Enjoy your day shopping and relaxing with friends and family. Hugs to you all! Can’t wait to hear all about your trip when you get home. Safety, health and love to you all! Be sure to keep your hearts and minds open to what God has in store for you all in many different ways. Heaven must be celebrating about all of the new followers from Guatemala. Thank you for your role in their new lives with Christ. We will continue to pray for Nancy that God will soften her heart and have the opportunity to welcome her into His mighty fold someday. Bless you all in mighty ways!!
    Hugs – Mom, Mrs. A, Lynn

    Brittany – thank you for taking Sarah under your wing and keeping her safe from Mr. Spider. You are the best friend I could have ever asked God for. You were the best friend wayyyyy before you saved her from Mr. Spider. BTW. Hugs to you! Mrs. A.
