Love Guatemala has been partnering with BuildinGuate

and providing soup for the people that they work with on the garbage dump

in Escuintla, near the Port of San Jose.

These people live and work on the garbage dump…

It was very hot and humid on the day we served soup….

This school, known as Esperanza (hope) was given school supplies

by the grade 3 class of Upper Sumas Elementary, in Abbotsford, BC

It was a surprise to the teacher and her students who all happily

opened the much needed bins….

How excited can you get about pencils, crayons, paper, etc???

I WILL BE WARM TONIGHT….

When the container arrived and we got to start emptying the boxes

we had fun delivering the 80+ blankets that had been made by

loving hands at the Yarrow MB church ladies group…

We delivered them to the students in Chimixiya…

Many of the children said that “I will be warm tonight”.

Even the director needed to be warm at night…

We then gave out food to the parents of the students that are sponsored…

This little gal is 85 years old, lives a lone and was very happy

when we stopped by and give her some food….we visit her every other month

Bus Drivers…on your mark, get set, GO

•June 22, 2015 • Leave a Comment

Our bus drivers that take 17 minutes to drive the route from

Los Llanos to Antigua are paid very little…they need to pay the

gas, the owner, the extortionist and if they are lucky after the bills are

paid…they can take some home to feed their families….

So again, we try to encourage them, pray for them and tell them that

Jesus loves them…

Pancakes for our Police Officers….

•June 22, 2015 • Leave a Comment

We want to show appreciation to our police force so we give

them pancake breakfasts…in June we fed 30 police officers.

They came, they hugged, they cried, they shared….

Many of them did not want to leave as they talked about what Philip

had meant to them….so I (Judy) told them that I would still pray for

them and their families.  But I knew that the greatest thing that could happen

in their lives was to give their heart to Jesus Christ….

The Police Chief, Josen, then told me how much they had appreciated

Philip and that is why they had carried his casket and been a part of the

procession to the cemetery.  He said that when Philip spoke about

the Lord Jesus Christ that they all knew that he also lived what he believed.

We hugged and they needed to get back to work….

Almighty God we pray to you
In heaven up above
Watch over our dear police officers
And protect them with your love.

Please guide them as they keep us
safe both day and night
And hold them firmly in your care
should danger come their way.

Give them true strength and courage
As they serve til duty’s end
And one more thing to ask dear Lord
Protect their family and their friends.

Route 66

We have started  Bible Study lessons entitled “Route 66″.

No, this is not the highway in the US but the study of the 66 books of the Bible…

The children at Kid’s Fiesta knew the names of the books but had no idea

what was written in each book….let the excitement begin…

In the BEGINNING…..

…they all received their own Bible….

That was more exciting than colouring…..

15 Work hard so God can say to you, “Well done.” Be a good workman, one who does not need to be  ashamed when God examines your work. Know what his Word says and means.
