Well I believe God has started a tradition for us here in Guatemala and we LOVE IT!!! You may remember that last year I posted a blog about Uniting 2 Serve At Risk Families which shared about the opportunity we had to take food to families for Easter and share with them about the importance of what we celebrate with this holiday: the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus which washed us clean of all our sins and gives us new life in Him!! This year God provided us with the opportunity to do it again and we were able to serve even more families!!
When we shared about this last year, Dylan’s family loved the idea so much that they sent money for us to be able to buy some food and candy for the families. Then our home church in the states, York Christian Church, had a team here in February and they had a lot of candy left over so they gave it to us. One of our 4 banana trees in our year produced a bushel of bananas just in time for them to be ready to give with these baskets. Also, just like last year, we were able to buy the baskets and some food in addition to what was already supplied thanks to our faithful financial partners who continue to support us to do what God has called us to here in Guatemala.
We were able to bless 12 families with food this year and share with them the love and hope that Jesus brings to all of us! As I said in my post when we did this last year it wasn’t just Jon, Dylan, and I buying this food and sharing the love of Christ with these families it was ALL of us, doing our part that God has called us to do, working TOGETHER as the body of Christ. We want to thank all of you, our partners in ministry, for your faithful prayer and financial support. We are so grateful that God continues to move your hearts and that you continue to follow God’s call in Uniting 2 Serve At Risk Families with us in Guatemala! Below are some pictures of a few of the families God blessed this year. Can’t wait to see what He does next year!!
