Yesterday, I had the privilege to attend a followup session for cleft lip and cleft palate patients with our friends from Clinica Dental Familiar. Their office is here in Guatemala City but families travel from all over Guatemala to come for the free consult to adjust their child’s obturator and receive instruction from the staff. I knew that the family of the newborn baby had their appointment later in the morning, but I felt led to be there during the entire session. After being there for a very few minutes, it was obvious that I was there for the spiritual and emotional needs of these families. I was given time to encourage and share God’s love to many of them and eventually I was directed to a private office to be able to minister to them in a more personal way. But as its often the case, I went to be a blessing to others and ended up being touched and blessed by each story and I am amazed at how much we can learn from them if we just the time to be their friends. These sessions are held on Mondays and please pray for the door to continue to be open there.
