Friends and family:
Wanted you to know that I arrived safely on US soil Saturday evening. After a second flight from Atlanta to Richmond, and a long, sleepy drive from the Richmond airport over the mountain, I am home.
To the many who were praying, I believe every prayer was heard and certainly I felt each one.
For every encouraging email sent and comment left, my heart is grateful. I hope to respond to each one early this week.
My time in Guatemala far exceeded my greatest hopes. God’s goodness, even in the depths of poverty and death, grabbed hold of my heart and I am sure I have never been nearer to Jesus.
There are so many more stories to tell. I am not done writing by any stretch.
I hope you’ll keep following, not to hear me, but to hear them.

Each child, each mama, each family, each village has a God-sized story waiting to be told, and my journey would not be complete without telling them.
Today I want you to know how grateful I am for you, that you would take the time to read the posts, pray, and even give this week.
But I also want you to know the story isn’t over just because I’m back home. If I had one wish, it would be for you to become engaged in the story, too. In a deep way, to be engaged by praying, giving, telling, entering in, going, advocating.
Based on your encouraging comments and emails, I think many of you are already engaged, and I want this to be only the beginning for you.
There are more stories to tell than days in the year or hours in a day. Many more than I have time to write.

Yet, I’m going to try to tell the stories, because each life is worth it. Every one of them. I’m unwilling to forget or to move on or walk away or become complacent.
Will you join me in telling their stories?
If nowhere else, I promise you (really promise) that joining and participating in this epic story will lead you right into the Father heart of God.
