In their own words… Old and New

Old and New
by Janie Wicker

Our For the Love board of directors visited Javier, our recipient of the first small business loan, last week. He has a small home and factory just outside Antigua, Guatemala on the side of a mountain…literally. When we first arrived and took a tour of the upgrades he had made with the loan, I was taken back by how old the equipment was even though it was purchased fairly recently. But then I realized how God takes the old, no matter how old, and makes things new. He does this for everyone who asks. Javier and his workers are making new purses, new key chains, new jewelry, and new luggage tags using their God given talents. I was the “old person of the group” but the Holy Spirit showed me new ways to see, think, and praise. Hebrews 10:20 says “by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, His body.” Now so real. He does make all things new…ask Him.
