They Came Bringing Meds: Chimixiya

The clinic day in Chimixiya….lots of amoebas (little critters that live

in your intestines, not good).  Love Guatemala Canada did hand out

15 eco water filters but many do not have access to pure water.

The moms of our sponsored students provided us with a great lunch of

hot soup (it was cold, windy and rainy all day).

The second and third clinics were held in Jocotenango.

The City staff had set up enclosures for each doctor…great privacy.

They also provided the intake people to take their information.

And we were assigned 4 police persons.

High Blood Pressure and Diabetics, foot problems were high on the list of problems.

Kid’s Fiesta has been studying the Bible and learning how to worship

I enjoy hearing the kids recite verses and sing praises to our Lord and Saviour.

The Junior Leaders came over to help pack 300lbs of rice….from

empty shelves, to lots of laughter and conversation, to full shelves.

The school at Genesis Project will be painted next week.

Doors and windows, and the railings are being made.

January, 2018 will begin a new school year in a new school.

One that Genesis can call “home”.

I am so proud of our Junior Leaders…

They just take over the teaching of the lessons, crafts, worship and prayer.

These young people are future leaders of their community, their families, their church,

their country.

EVACUATION….

•July 22, 2017 • Leave a Comment

After three earthquakes in a week (6.9, 5 ad 6.8) and then heavy rain

the residents of Vista Hermosa were given an hour to pack up and get out.

The first evening 27 left and 23 stayed…..we got a call at 7pm asking if we could

provide dinner for the families.  “When??”  “8 pm”…..ok then…we provided fresh coffee,

and bean sandwiches.  They came by families, sadness and stress filled their eyes.

The ones I spoke to said they were “fine” “really???” “no, I am so scared!”

We fed, we prayed and we hugged…..

The second night it was ham sandwiches an beans and then BLANKETS!

The Disater Team had provided very thin blankets for the families and when

Pablo, 7, came and asked “lady, I am so cold, do you have a warmer blanket??”

I went home and emailed friends, within the hour we had funds to purchase

50 quilts.  The staff at the grocery store were excited to help me load

them in the truck when they found out who would be receiving them.

They have all moved back home, three houses are no longer in use.

One of the local schools provided help and materials to shore up the

mountain and rebuild some of the homes.
