  Picture Praise Photography by: Tracy Batchelor        

I took this picture while touring one of the ruins in Antigua, Guatemala.  You could see the centuries old fountain, which most days sits dry, framed by the new growth of the beautiful bougainvillea.  As I looked at the scene before me, it reminded me of how God makes all things new.  We are sent to proclaim freedom to those who are bound by their past and feel unworthy, and help them see that God can turn their mourning into joy and clothe them with hope for the future.

About the author

Originally from Georgia, I have lived and served alongside my family in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala since 1996. Our goal in ministry is to prepare the local believer to fulfill the call of God on his/her life and become a productive part of the Body of Christ. We want to lead by example and train others to share God’s love in practical ways, to build disciples through relationships and to always exalt God and keep Him first. We are able to do this through teaching in bible schools and seminars, networking with local pastors and through one on one mentoring. I have 3 daughters who are growing up on the mission field and an amazing husband of 24 years.
