[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text disable_pattern=”true” align=”left” margin_bottom=”0″]Prior to joining the Athentikos team on the Fall 2014, I Am Art trip to Guatemala, I had struggled defining the purpose for this stage of my life. I had a great job working for a great company and a family that I loved dearly but something was missing. I couldn’t define what my life was supposed to look like but I knew that I wanted to do something where I could make a difference in people’s lives.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text disable_pattern=”true” align=”left” margin_bottom=”0″]During the week-long art camp, my eyes were opened to something I had never seen. I saw a new definition of beautiful. I knew for the first time in my life that God was clearly telling me to step out in faith and follow Him. He had a plan for me. So, I returned home, tendered my resignation and put my affairs in order to be away for an extended period of time.[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/6″][mk_image src=”https://athentikos.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/DSC08832.jpg” image_width=”800″ image_height=”350″ crop=”true” svg=”false” lightbox=”true” frame_style=”simple” target=”_self” caption_location=”inside-image” align=”left” margin_bottom=”10″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/6″][mk_image src=”https://athentikos.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/DSC01401.jpg” image_width=”800″ image_height=”350″ crop=”true” svg=”false” lightbox=”true” frame_style=”simple” target=”_self” caption_location=”inside-image” align=”left” margin_bottom=”10″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/6″][mk_image src=”https://athentikos.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/DSC00048.jpg” image_width=”800″ image_height=”350″ crop=”true” svg=”false” lightbox=”true” frame_style=”simple” target=”_self” caption_location=”inside-image” align=”left” margin_bottom=”10″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/6″][mk_image src=”https://athentikos.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/DSC01582.jpg” image_width=”800″ image_height=”350″ crop=”true” svg=”false” lightbox=”true” frame_style=”simple” target=”_self” caption_location=”inside-image” align=”left” margin_bottom=”10″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/6″][mk_image src=”https://athentikos.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/DSC08944.jpg” image_width=”800″ image_height=”350″ crop=”true” svg=”false” lightbox=”true” frame_style=”simple” target=”_self” caption_location=”inside-image” align=”left” margin_bottom=”10″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/6″][mk_image src=”https://athentikos.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/H4G-DSC02979.jpg” image_width=”800″ image_height=”350″ crop=”true” svg=”false” lightbox=”true” frame_style=”simple” target=”_self” caption_location=”inside-image” align=”left” margin_bottom=”10″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_column_text disable_pattern=”true” align=”left” margin_bottom=”0″]I felt learning the language was an important first step so I made the decision to go to Antigua to study Spanish. I plan to be in Guatemala for a couple of months where I can study and find opportunities to serve with others. I do not know where God will want me long-term but I have never had so much peace about where I am and absolutely no concern over where I am headed. My goal is to be prepared for the next chapter of my life – and I have no doubt who the author will be…..[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=prxqpwqflHY”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][mk_fancy_title tag_name=”h3″ style=”false” color=”#0ba9b9″ size=”25″ font_weight=”bolder” letter_spacing=”0″ margin_top=”10″ margin_bottom=”30″ font_family=”none” align=”center” font_style=”inhert” txt_transform=”uppercase”]HELP US EMPOWER 500 AT-RISK YOUTH IN 2015[/mk_fancy_title][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][mk_custom_box border_color=”” border_width=”1″ bg_color=”#f6f6f6″ bg_image=”” bg_position=”left top” bg_repeat=”repeat” bg_stretch=”false” predefined_bg=”” padding_vertical=”30″ padding_horizental=”20″ margin_bottom=”10″ min_height=”100″ visibility=”” animation=”” el_class=””][mk_font_icons icon=”mk-icon-money” color=”#0ba9b9″ size=”xx-large” margin_horizental=”4″ margin_vertical=”4″ circle=”false” align=”center” link=”https://Athentikos.com/give” target=”_self”][vc_column_text disable_pattern=”true” align=”center” margin_bottom=”0″]
