And he said to them, " The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. Luke 10:2
Since my last update, things at Aliento, our feeding program, have continued. Our relationship with the girls that help us have grown much stronger. We have had fantastic interactions with them these past months.
On September 20th, we were able to take our four sponsored girls out to celebrate them finishing this year of school and for 3 of the girl's 15th birthdays. We took them out to eat and explored a bit of Antigua. Most girls had never been to Antigua or eaten in a restaurant.
We wanted this day to be a day where we could share Jesus. Shower the girls with love, and show them how they are supposed to be treated by those around them.
On that day, we were also able to see the true girls under the mask they have to wear because of where they live.
With the holiday upon us we have been decorating and getting ready to celebrate Christmas and the birth of Jesus!
On the 27th of November we had our annual Christmas Tree Day. This is when we decorate the whole home. We are all decked out in Christmas clothes and have Christmas music playing all day.
New Family Member
Nohemí is the newest addition to our family. When she first came, we thought that she couldn't see or hear, but she's proven us wrong by definitely responding to loud noises.
After getting over having Covid and pneumonia, she has many stomach issues, which leads to a lot of crying. Recently she's been crying where it is tough to find a way to calm her or even know how to calm her down. Pray that we can figure out how to make her more comfortable.
* Pray for my friend Katie Riley and her adoption process of adopting two of our kids in the home.
* Pray that our Aliento team will continue to show Jesus's love to those Christ has given us to minister.
* Pray that we will be able to reach and have the necessary conversations.
* Pray for the health and protection of the adults and kids that we care for in our homes.
I want to take a moment to thank you for all your support and encouragement. The only way I can do this is because of Christ. He has provided me with a great support system both here in Guatemala and all of you back in the States. I am very thankful for both your prayer, emotional and financial support. Seeing all the hurt daily has made me see how blessed I am. Again thank you, and Happy holidays
