A Blessing for us today!

Today we went to San Jorge to build a couple of stoves, visit a school to hand out shoes and take pictures.  This is the village where our construction team from last year began building a home for a family whose home had collapsed into the river after Tropical Storm Agatha.  Unfortunately because of the rain, our team did not finish the work.  When we arrived today we saw the completed home and the family had prepared a gift for our group.  It was such a blessing to hear her thank our church for purchasing her family a new home.  She said they no longer fear losing their home in the rains.  Julia, a member of last year's team, was able to receive their gift and we prayed for her and her family.  For all other members, we have video footage of the mother's appreciation for you to hear.

It was another great day as we gave out sooooo many shoes.  Our group has felt and experienced God's great gifts of beauty in the country and in the Mayan people.  Plus, no rain today!!!

Thanks for your continued support and prayers as we finish up our week.  More pictures to come tomorrow.

  2. Scripture for today. Paul,Silas and Timothy said, We always thank God for all of you in our prayers. We continually remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. 1Thess.1:2

  3. So happy to hear the news on the home started last summer. Thanks for the update! Continued prayers and hugs!
