Canadian Troop….

•November 6, 2017 • Leave a Comment

The Canadian team of 6 arrived to help construct a home for Humberto,

Maria and their two sons.  The second floor was completed, wiring and

plumbing were installed.  The walls were mudded, floor poured and

a short concrete patio was poured.

 

What a difference we have seen in Humberto in the last month.

Maria works his physio every day.  He wheeled into the house

and gave us a two thumbs up when we asked him if he liked

it.  We will purchase a new bed for them, mattresses for the

bunk beds for the boys, and a few shelves for both levels.

Thank you to Fredene, Norm, Monty, Barb, Wayne and Diana

for all the wheelbarrows of sand, gravel and dirt.  For all the

tiring and hot days that you worked so hard to help finish

the house…..bless you.

“It’s not enough to have lived. We should be determined to live for something. May I suggest that it be creating joy for others, sharing what we have for the betterment of person-kind, bringing hope to the lost and love to the lonely.”

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”.
