Have been so bad with the blogging thing lately (me sick), but I wanted to ask you all to be praying for my sister, Becki, who is going on an amazing adventure today.

Today she leaves for Guatemala, with a small local group called Reach Beyond Borders. She'll be providing medical care and supplies for a very very poor rural region near Guatemala City. The group works under the oversight of America Latina Clinics and Ministries (their website doesn't seem to be working, but hopefully will be by the time you read this).

Guatemala isn't a very safe place for foreigners... Lonely Planet rates it high-risk. Many safety precautions have been taken, but we ask that you pray for her safety while there. Becki is so excited to do hands on service that fully utilizes her skills and to bring desperately needed supplies to an area that is extremely rural, poor and seemingly forgotten by the government.

She hasn't even gotten on her plane yet, but I'm anxious for her return so she can share pictures and stories. What a trip!

I will keep your sister in my prayers. I think the kind of work she is doing is very important to this world - it must be very exciting for her!
