Over the winter I have gotten the privilege of meeting Ted and Gail while living in the Florida Keys. She has such a heart for others and is always willing to help. After Meeting Gail I quickly learned her passion and love for missions. In just a short amount of time, we became quick friends. I have been blessed to have met Ted and Gail over the winter. I have also loved having the opportunity to help prepare the team for their missions when it comes to helping with the boat, sorting out clothes, going to one of the meetings, looking through photos and videos of the children, and most of all the "Raise the Roof" fundraiser. We also have had some pretty awesome experiences in Florida. We have attended a healing conference weekend, a little women's overnight meeting on the boat, and she was also able to attend when I had gotten baptized a few weeks ago which was pretty cool. Just being able to see how God is working in not just one event but in each and every event that goes on is absolutely amazing and I love being able to encounter his presence.
Gail is the founder of Bluewater Surrender and the children's home Casa Agua Azul in Guatemala. This children's home is home to children that have been abandoned, abused or, the parents aren't able to care for their children. Over the winter I have gotten the privilege to hear so many stories about the children at the children's home and it has been placed on my heart to help them as well. Bluewater Surrender has helped these kids in Guatemala tremendously but needs our help. I feel that I am being called to help these children as well. Being able to see how God is working in the lives of the kids in the children's home is amazing and I cannot wait until the day I get to go and meet and love on each and every one of those kiddos!
The race has begun to "Raise the Roof" for Casa Agua Azul in Guatemala. If you are wanting to help with missions but are unable to travel. This is a perfect way that you are able to still help. If you have a love for children and the desire to help out on missions then this is the perfect opportunity to start helping by donating. Anything helps no matter how little or how large you are able to help. Anything helps when it comes to helping the children
I promise if you are like me, you'll fall in love with the mission of BWS and the kids of Casa Agua Azul!
