  2. Hey AJ! I am doing great we had an amazing first day building houses! We got really far and we had a lot of fun. The weather has been really great so far it didn’t really rain all that much today so it didn’t mess with our building. The kids are absolutley amazing! We had such a fun day playing with the kids and I can’t wait until we go back tomorrow to see them all again! The food is great here we all love it. I cannot wait to see what the Lord is going to be doing in all of our lives while we are here! Thank you for the prayers they are greatly appreciated!

  3. Hey Jaden! Boy it was a HOT day at the fair! We came home at 10:30 because it was getting so warm! Watched Kody show…that was lots of fun! We hope you are having a great time in Guat…being the hands and feet of Christ and serving Him and others with your kind heart! We are praying for you!

  4. Hi Beautiful girl….. I miss you! How are things going? I am hoping that you are loving being the hands and feet of Christ. You have an awesome, giving spirit and I am sure by now the kids have seen that! I have been praying for you since you left! I will try and write again later to check into your building progress. I am thankful that you have lots of experience provided by Maassen Makeovers:) jk I love you and hope to chat with you soon.

  5. Hey Jaden!! Wanted you to know I am praying for you as you experience this amazing trip!! Sounds like you guys are bustin records with house building!! Way to GO!! You all are amazing!! Do you like the food? I wish you could sneak me some tostadas with chicken salad and fresh guacamole…pretty sure it wouldn’t be too safe to eat when you got home LOL! So just enjoy one for me please 🙂 Have a wonderful week Jaden and I can’t wait to hear all about how God has been using you this week, I am sure you are blessing everyone around you with your kind and compassionate heart and gentle spirit.

  6. Hi Jaden, How are you? I am missing my chore girl! Sounds like things are going well there for you. Are all of your carpenter skills that I taught you becoming useful? Here is an update on the fair – Charlie got reserve in her class of 14 hogs. She was the only pig of the day to get penned! Although Kody insisted he was not showing her, we bribed him – so Kody. Kennedy did well and was also reserve in her class. I hope that you are well and enjoying your time there being surrounded by the kids. Stay healthy and safe, love you! Marv

  7. Hi Jaden, I am excited to hear how God has been using you these last couple of days both in building the houses and also dedicating the houses. You have a beautiful spirit and I can’t wait to hear your stories and see your pictures. Take care of yourself! You are the true meaning of a servant. All our love, mom and Marv

  8. Hey momma! I am doing great! These past few days have been just amazing! The dedicating of our house was very emotional and was hard but we are hoping and praying that Jose will accept Christ. I just came back from the orphanage and those kids are just amazing! I already miss the kids from La Reina. I have many stories to share that’s for sure! 🙂 The medical clinic was really good last night and I am excited for the one tonight as well! God is definalty working the lives of these people here but also in our lives and it’s a little sad that we will be leaving soon but I know that He is still here and still doing amazing things! I love you and i’ll see you soon!

  9. I saw you in church this morning! Guess what, I got tears in my eyes. I am so proud of you and all that you are accomplishing! I believe you when you say it will be hard to leave there but remember that God will still be there! Can’t wait to hear your stories. Glad that you are well! Love and prayers to you and your team, mom and Marv

  10. Hello Miss Jaden. I am covering you in prayer on this last day of medical clinics. I hope you know how loved and supported you are from back home but more importantly our Heavenly Father. May you experience his everlasting peace as you transition back home in the next few days.

  11. Hi how are you? I hope you are having a good time in guetimala. I am praying for you. I hope you have safe travles home. from aj schrock.

  12. Hey Jaden!

    I love hearing about how you are loving to love on all the kids 🙂 I can definitely see you doing that- just as I can see the smiles on their faces. Praying for you!


  13. Thank you Laura, Stacey, and AJ! The prayers are much appreciated! 🙂 Ha mom.. You would cry.. 🙂 I love you though! Today was an amazing day at the medical clinic I actually helped out in the clinic and distributed medication which was very cool to be apart of! The trip to get there was very long, curvy, and bumpy but we got there safely! Praise the Lord! Well tomorrow is our last day and then it’s time to go home. I am ready to go home but I really don’t want to leave here. God is doing so much work here that it is just amazing to see and be apart of! I’ll be seeing you soon! Love you!
