4 Small Book Shelves and 2 Large Book Shelves and Basic School Supplies
Lutheran Church of the Resurrection/Lutheran School
Pastor Luis Alberto Jasinto
4 Young Children need $1,000 each to attend school for 1 year
Includes enrollment fees, all uniforms, transportation to and from the school, daily lunch and supplies.
They all live in Los Limones, a poor settlement near Gualan and have no opportunities or a prosperous future without support.
They have dreams that can not come true without our support. They want to study at the Lutheran College of Gualán and dream of being teachers and administrators. They need our prayers and financial support.
Lutheran Hour (Cristo For Los Todos Naciones)
Rebeca de Franco
Met with Rebeca de Franco, Director and discussed our possible involvement in a water project in San Pedro Ayampue. Which is located in one of Guatemala’s dry corridors that get less rain annually than the rest of the country.
Medium and High drought risk.
1 in 4 families have unsatisfied basic water needs.
Helping 46 families would mean drinking water accessor over 200 people.
(construct water cisterns at approx. $300 each)
We went with my American Legion Post from Antigua on Dec 19th; we handed out a $1,000 worth of Christmas gifts to the poor children in San Juan del Obispo. There was food served and also the ever present festive piñatas!
