Helping Families……Chickville and Wheelchairs

 

Two more chicken coops were delivered…..

one to the family of Marta Lidia, a widow with four children and

one to a family of 12.  It was exciting to see how they were all

eager to receive the coop and chickens.  After we set up the coop we

explain how this business works, three of the 31 chickens they need to give

to someone in need when they are mature at 6 weeks and the rest they can

eat or sell or do both.  We then pray over the family and the chicks.

 

Scott is making sure that the chicks will be safe in the back of the truck…..

Our new home…..

Esperanza(Hope)  and her cousin, putting in the chicks…

The neighbor kids want to know where are the rest of the chicks going…..

Here comes the second coop…..the Canu family in La Canoa…

Watching as it is put in its place…..

First of the chicks finding a new home….

Franscisco (3)….not sure what to do with this chick…..

The boys were intent on listening to instructions…..

Scott and Linda, our friends from Idaho and now Kansas City

wanted to show us the Bethel Project in Chimaltenango…

The project reburses used and damaged wheelchairs and gives

them to those who need them in Guatemala and El Salvador.

The four staff are also in wheelchairs….it is a very impressive place…..

Not your typically brown and black…..bright green, yellow, red, orange

 

…there are a lot of parts and wheelchairs that need fixing……2 containers came in

since January, 2010….everything is very organized in this building…

…something for a little person….

The first question which the priest and the Levite asked was:  “If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?” 

 But… the good Samaritan reversed the question:  “If I do not stop to help this man, what will happen to him?”
