There are volumes written on “friendship” and I dare not attempt to add insight to such wisdom already present. But I want to share this one moment of grace. Today during our “home visits” with Pastor Felix, we stopped by the house of Andres. I have noted him in earlier posts (April 2011 visit). Andres is the dear friend of Norris – the man who is responsible for all of us being in Guatemala in the first place.
Norris , Andres and Pastor Felix worked with the school, government and church to build the school at La Toma. What we see today is a beautiful collaboration of several leaders who were able to bring their unique gifts and perspectives to provide a good place for the education of children. When I see Andres I am humbled just to have conversation with him. This man has changed the world with his life. It began with friends that came together in the context of meeting a need. Andres is sick and it broke my heart to see him not well. Please pray for him.
