…and On This Mountain….

The shelves were bare….no food, time to go shopping….

1800 lbs of food is now bagged and ready to be delivered….

We had made a pot of soup to take to Mano de Leon….on the way up the mountain

we encountered the migrant coffee workers coming down the mountain after a long,

hot day picking coffee….we started serving soup…..

…not looking good…need to go shopping…

…it is always fun to go into a grocery store and pick up multiple

quantities of food….people here shop daily….so we are always asked

“why are you buying so much?”….perfect opportunity to share what we are doing…

…that looks much better…

…we make smaller pacs of Gleaners soup and include it in the

40lbs of food/family…

…zip locked and tagged with pictures (for those who cannot read)

and description (for the children who can tell their parents how to

make the soup)…

…stopping on the mountain road to feed soup to some migrant workers…

…thank you for the soup and pan…

could you move your truck as there is a coffee truck coming

towards you….

…loading the sacks of coffee…

they make approx $140.00/month

…these workers live here….home is 6 hours away in Quiche’

a “refugee” camp for workers….the living conditions are terrible..

there are 300 people living here….poor and hungry

…do you have any food for us????…

…one of the gals from Mano de Leon heading out to sell corn…

…welcome back…do you want to know what grade I am in????

…the little guy on the right is the village clown…

his laugh is contagious…..

…enjoying the truck….how do I make the security lights go on again????

…I will get you….

…amidst their poverty there is laughter….

…what did you say????

…good to the last drop….

…handing out groceries…

…did you bring something for me????

 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?”
