Talking Trash!

….we work with 15-20 moms….some are single, some widowed,

some married with a spouse who lives with them….all are very poor.

We have started a new project…we have become trash ladies…in the

nice sense of the word!  If you were here you might see us picking up

garbage….making Guatemala a “primavera” country….

…we even got the guys to help….

…this gal lives with her grandmother…

…it is a time for them to get to know each other…

sharing stories, laughing, knowing that they are all in the same

situation….

…so if you are wondering what we are doing…

You will have to wait until we have some finished product!

…once a week a psychologist comes and talks to the women…

…she also does role playing with them…

here they are team building….

…while the moms are in session, we play with the kids….

..teaching them that Jesus Loves them…

…sometimes older siblings need to babysit so that mom

can go to a session….

“Jesus is the starving, the parched, the prisoner, the stranger,

 the naked, the sick, the dying. Jesus is the oppressed,

the poor. To live with Jesus is to live with the poor.

 To live with the poor is to live with Jesus.”
