Alberta bound….

The day after Philip passed away a team from Alberta arrived.  These 19 people had such compassion and team work.  Two organizations here in Guatemala took them to their projects and then they worked a few days for Love Guatemala.  This September I visited the team and their families and friends.  It was great to hear their salvation stories, why they came to Guatemala and what impressions they had of the work they did there.  I also got to watch a slow pitch game and speak in the Rheinland church and the EMMC church.  These teams organized a fund raiser for a school that they worked with in Guatemala.  They raised enough money to buy a lot and we are hoping to start the school in November.

The November Love Guatemala Canada team will be leaving on November 2 to help build a school or a house, work with 100 kids in Vacation Bible School, enjoy a 15th birthday celebration, a graduation party and give out lots of hugs.

They worked at the Gleaners for a morning to see how the soup is made.


Thank you for your servant hearts…

The House Above….

Philip and my dream was to build a house on top of the two containers that sit on a lot in El Recuerdo Jocotenango.  The one container has Gleaners soup and the other one is construction materials and community aid.

The construction team started building in July….a new adventure for them as the house if made of wood not concrete blocks.  It will be a ministry house, not only a home for Judy, but other missionaries who need a place to stay or just hang out for a while.

We are praying that it will be finished by October 15th.

The Bomberos (Firemen) in Antigua did not have any blankets, sheets or pillows

so Love Guatemala outfitted 14 beds…..they were so grateful….

Time to Feed the Hungry….

We love to feed the bus drivers…..and they love to be fed….

200+ pancakes, ham and coffee…..perfect to start their run for the day…


It is always exciting to visit our friends in Chimixiya,

These women have become very precious to us and it has taken years before they have trusted us enough to ask for prayer…..

The House that Love Built….

•May 20, 2016 • Leave a Comment

We had met Lucrecia and her family several years ago.

They are a family of 11 living in a metal shack with dirt floors.

The women all make tortillas and try to sell them.

Some days are good others, not so good for sales.

There were 6 people sleeping in one bedroom.  A widow and her daughter (11),

her son (17) and two brothers (38 and 39) and grandma Lucrecia.

The other room had a son and his wife and their 3 boys.

We called the children together and said “who owns the land?”

Lucrecia does….that was a very good start.  Love Guatemala would like to build you a house.  With you helping as much as you can, we can do this….lots of tears.

So….in the Beginning…..

THANK YOU to the three dudes in the last picture.  They worked

long days in the heat, they worked hard and the end result was

a home built with love.

THANK YOU  to those of you who financially supported this project.

Bless you…..if you were here you would be hugged by the entire family.

When we gave them the keys, we prayed a prayer of blessing

on the family and upon the house.
