COCO! Praying for you and your team tonight before I go to bed. Your week is just about to start and I can’t wait to hear about the way God uses you this week. Your team is lucky to have you and I pray that God let’s you grow with a whole bunch of strangers. Tell Hot-Rod I say hi and that I hope he doesn’t “misplace” anything this year like his wallet. Love you so much. Praying for you and your entire team! XOXO
Glad you all arrived safely! Blessings to all. lOve you grandma.
Thank you grandma!!
I cannot wait to show you pictures and share with you all my stories!
God has placed me on this trip for a reason and it comes out in little ways each and everyday!
As I write this I am sipping on my cup of Guatemalan coffee here at the base. It is our second morning here and it is extremely foggy. Yesterday morning was exactly the same. I am so blessed to be here with this group of people, God has placed us all together on this trip in this particular moment for a reason. Some of His evident plans have already arose and it has been powerful. It’s only the second day!! Yesterday we got to the village and it was so damp and the mud was outrageous! Everywhere we stepped we had a hard time getting out of the place we were coming from because the mud was so thick and sticky. We made the best out of it and continued on our day. The house my team and I am are building for is a big family. They have four young children and yesterday I gained a relationship with them at the end of the day. I started tickling one of them and that turned into war, their laughs brought me complete joy it was such a heart warming experience. When we left yesterday, their faces were so sad but when we told them we would return to tomorrow they had a smile from ear to ear. God is working already here in the village and within this team. I am beyond thankful God has placed with such an amazing group! Please pray for us today as we build bigger and stronger relationships with each of our families as we will be dedicating their homes to them tomorrow and asking if they want to accept Jesus Christ into their hearts!
Thanks for everyone’s loving support and prayers!!
Until next time,
hey courtney! hope all is well!

This meant a lot to me to hear from you! I am hearing more and more amazing things about you and cannot wait to get together when we get home! I would love to hear your stories and the love you have for serving the LORD.
Hope all is well and you had a great dedication today and the family was touched. Hope you are staying healthy I hear some of your team got sick. Stay safe, can’t wait to hear the stories from this adventure.
Love you lots
Hi Mom! Miss you!
I did not get the flu but last night had some reaction with my stomach stuff but this morning I am feeling much better! Cant wait to share stories with you when I get home!!
I hope you are having an amazing time! I am so blessed to have you had a role model in my life, seeing how God shapes you through your trips makes me want to go on more and more mission trips. I can’t wait for you to get home so I can hear all about your adventures and blessings from over there.
With lots of love,
Thank you so much!! You brought tears to my eyes reading this katelyn. I am so proud of you and it excites me to watch you grow and shape into a beautiful young lady. God has tremendous plans for you and I cannot wait to see where He brings you!
Love you lots!!
Hey Courtney did you ask for #33 yet for me? El Poder Tu De Amore. Senor Al
Oh we played 33 for you multiple times!! Miss you wish you were here with us! Rodney says hi!
Thank you so much for all your prayers and support throughout this trip not only for myself but for this amazing team! Two nights before we left for Guate we had a packing night and I was surprised when I showed up to see how many Calvin Christian families were going. I thought I would only know a handful of people on this trip. God is always throwing curve balls at me through out my faith journey. Relationships are being built on this trip! Yesterday was the first med clinic and the first road we took was quite an adventure, we ended up having to back down this mountain side dirt road at 8000 ft up. Man did lots of us feel the power of prayer as we got down that mountain side safely. Prayer is the greater work and you can NEVER out give God. The enemy has been active this trip and does not want us to be sharing His word with anyone but we have not backed down and continue to give all we have to God. I cannot wait to share so many stories when I get home!!
Miss you all!
Lots of LOVE
My prayers are for God to put a hedge around all of you and God will open there ears to hear what God has to say to them.
May you all see His miracles and blessing .
I was exited to see more bloges!
Thanks and much love ,!
God is at work all praise to Him
Hi Courtney! It so great to hear about the trip! Praying for safety, good health, team bonding and open hearts! God always goes before you and is beside you. God’s light shines brightly in you!! See you soon.
