Meeting Will and Diane and visiting Opal House has been a delight. We live two hours from them in Xela, and we met a couple of years ago, and were so impressed by their journey of faith, leaving everything in the States for a dream of mutual transformation in Guatemala. Many dreams like that are forgotten or ignored, or fear of the risk involved prevents people from stepping into them. Thankfully this dream came true, because Will and Diane never wavered in their faith, and their desire to bless the poor and create new possibilities for children who have few options in life. Opal House derives its name from how the opal forms from defects, signifying that the most beautiful things can spring forth from pain and suffering and limitations. Will and Diane have experienced that first hand, which gives them the moral authority and believability to engender such transformation amongst those they serve. Opal House is a beacon of hope, and the spirituality of unity that Will and Diane live out in a country that is divided in every possible way, allows them, even in their weakness as foreigners, to be incredible instruments of peace.
