Someone once said, “I want a relationship to be you’re telling me you love me is just a ceremonious validation of what you already show me”. During the past several years the Oakbrook Church mission team has been showing its love to the people of Sacapulas, Guatemala. This year the mission team joined forces with their friends from Sacapulas to show their love to the people of Balanya.
But mostly they just walked and they talked or should I say they listened. They listened as so many people told them their stories of divorce, poverty, sickness, and death. Not an easy week by any means but Oakbrook has learned over the years, forming relationships isn’t easy. It’s painful. It’s difficult. But at at the same time it’s so rewarding when people truly share with one another.
