"Evildoers do not understand what is right, but those who seek the LORD understand it fully" (Prov.28:5).
These two beautiful children, created in the image of God, represent the symptom of our grave disease. Our ailment? The love and idolatry of violence.This week they shared the gruesome details of a double murder at the entrance of the church plant. They spoke of the "giant pools of blood" and how "one of the stray bullets got stuck" in their home. They even plainly described the entrance and exit wounds of the victims. If one wasn't listening carefully, they would have thought they were speaking about a movie, a dream or a retelling a story they overheard. But never would one imagine the terror and violence that they witnessed and into which they are becoming indoctrinated could be real. Without someone to show these children that the violence, crime and injustice which surrounds them is wrong, they will only grow up perpetuate it upon another generation. Please keep the work we're doing in Guatemala in your prayers!
"The righteous care about justice for the poor, but the wicked have no such concern" (Proverbs 29:7)!
