During the 30 hour famine I learned how God can use just a little to do a lot, and how very little people in different parts of Africa and other countries have. Often time in American we get caught up in all our own stuff and never take time to listen to God. However, when we take time to listen we can hear God and listen to what He's calling us to do and to be obedient to follow.
So, as I was saying, when I did the famine at church I felt God touch my heart and felt him opening up my heart to listen to what He had to say. I heard Him calling me to be a missionary and to open the Word of God to other countries.
When I got home and then went to church on Sunday I saw the Guatemala mission trip in the bulletin and I thought, "This must not be a coincidence." So later I asked my mom if I could go to the meeting. She told me to ask her later so I did.
The mission trip to Guatemala is one led by The Webers from our church. We will be going as part of a team. The focus is medical, building, and going to the Palencia school. Josiah's focus would be working with the children during the time that the adults are in the medical clinics. The trip is in June
If you are interested in joining Josiah as a partner in the mission trip, you can write a check to First Presbyterian Church and send it to our home address.
