Eight years ago, 2004, two young teenage girls arrived at Casa.
They were not natural sisters but they became the dearest of friends. Nancy was sent here
because her father had passed away and her mother was extremely poor working in a market selling vegetables. Dina had just lost her mother and her father became extremely ill and unable to care for the children.
These two girls are poster children for my dream of seeing Guatemalan children saved an educated in order to make a difference in their own nation.
The Lord had spoken to me back in 1989 that he did not want me to come to Guatemala and open an orphanage and provide children for adoption to the United States. But rather he wanted Dottie and I to raise these children to be the next Christian leaders in Guatemala.
Both Nancy and Dina have graduated from college. Both are working in hospitals for children with AIDS. They both have bank accounts but more important they are absolutely two of the strongest Christians that have ever been raised at Casa.
So now they return to Tecpan and San Jose’ Paoquil to their families where they will continue to work in their respective hospitals and the godly members of their communities.
As we pray for them in church and then a day later as their families came to pick them up and pray for me I felt as though the desire of my heart had become a reality.
