SHARED BEAT
June 30, 2012

The Mayan people who work the dump in Guatemala City, though small in stature are big in heart, accepting of their plight in life, gracious and friendly beyond belief given their living conditions. We had the joy of giving new sight to many for whom we crafted prescription eye glasses from special equipment designed for use in third world countries.
We came away with a renewed appreciation of how blessed we are, how raw and cruel life is for so many, how critical it is for us to share from our abundance and blessings and how very small are our problems and concerns compared to theirs. It was the kind of place and people where Jesus would be today and we need to be there with them and for them and so many others like them worldwide.
