BuildinGuate meets Love Guatemala

On October 20th we met the people who direct the organization BuildinGuate….

They love to help their people and love Jesus…

We travelled with them to Escuintla to feed Gleaners soup,

check out the school that they have adopted, and meet the people that they help.

  1. Those picture sure remind me of Mexico . There are so many ,many poor people. And yet there are wealthy people as well. When they show you the city, the houses are so beautiful. I asked who lives there. And the tour guide says, the doctors, teachers, drug dealers. That was amazing to me. But I quess very true. We nearly always buy our groceries in a village where the real Mexicans live. They are wonderful people. I,m sure the Quates are much the same. We are having another beautiful day. Hunter is over, and tonight his parents are coming for supper and Vanessa,s birthday celebration. I am cooking summa borscht and fresh buns. Sure always nice to hear from you. Have a great wk end and week. That soup you make looks delicious. Take care. Verna ps we visited John and Thelma yesterday and the day before. Their friend Jack Sailor died yesterday. Enjoy your grandchildren.
