Feet spreading the good news

“How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation” ~ Isaiah 52:7

This week God made this verse come to life for me. But I came away with an expanded view of what I thought it meant. I’ve always pictured the feet of missionaries walking so that they could talk to people about the love of Christ. I do think this is a piece of this verse but today and yesterday I got to see a different set of feet carrying good news to a village in Guatemala called Chuaxic.

IMG_9435These are the feet that carried the good news all over a mountain down here in Guatemala. A team is here this week from Florida. They decided to bring shoes to the family we have been building the house for. Pretty soon the good news was spreading. And the team ended up fitting and buying shoes for about 200 people on the mountain! The children of Chuaxic, Guatemala ended up being the feet that spread the good news.
