April was the month of Easter.  The Junior Leaders  served an Easter lunch to the seniors

at the Drop in Center, helping sort out clothing, books and school supplies.

The Junior Leaders also taught lessons, sang and prayed with the kids.

One of our lessons was about saying NO to Drugs and Alcohol.

Melvyn a Karate Sensei came in and spoke to the kids.

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader. John Quincy Adams

So Proud of the Junior LGC Leaders….

While I was back in Canada the Junior Leaders took over Kid’s Fiesta.

They led worship, taught lessons and did a Valentines party

at the senior drop in center.  So when I came back it was so

good to see them still leading….their faith in Christ is strong

and they are using their gifts and abilities to further

His Kingdom….

For three days the ER Abroad Medical Mission team from

the US visited two villages and gave out diagnosis and

 meds….the people were so grateful as they could not

afford to see the doctor or pay for a prescription….

Thank you to Brian, Billie, David, Bob, Carli, Alison, Josh, Dr. David

Dr. Josue, Brad, and our translators: Arnoldo, Diego and Andrea.

The gals who worked the pharmacy:  Kaye and Margaret

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?” ~Martin Luther King, Jr.

In February the container of Gleaners soup left the Port of Vancouver

headed for Port Quetzal, Guatemala.

The container was loaded at FV Gleaners in Abbotsford but friends and

volunteers…..these Supermen loaded it in record time….

Blessings to you for your servant hearts….

The school in San Juan El Tizate is moving along block by block…

The parents, students and director are excited that they will have their

own school.

Thank you to so many that donated funds for this.  We are happy to also

hire a teacher so that Ricardo does not have to do it alone.

Education is the most powerful weapon for changing the world.

Packed and Ready to Move Out…

And they did, thank you to the “Supermen” that

came to help load the container in record time.

It is now off to Guatemala…..

Thank you to all of you that donated to the expense of the

container…1.7 million servings of soup, blankets, etc.
