Dear friends and partners,
God's right timing for us to launch a school in the community of Ebenezer (stone of help) started this year. This is a very poor village in Guatemala that never has had a health center nor a school for the children and teenagers. The Lord placed on our hearts His compassion and care for these lovely people in the year 2012. Since then we have been serving them in all the ways the Lord has allowed us to, in association with wonderful missionary teams and volunteers: feeding program, food distribution, water purification, installation of stoves, building of houses, handing out basic need supplies, strengthening the churches and preaching the gospel to the poor.
In the year 2016, with the help of our partners from FBC Doyline, Louisiana, the Hope Center was built to help us fulfill our mission in this place. Two years later we launched our Kindergarten School in this same building with great success in the first year. We had a total of 42 little ones attending our school for the first time and 15 students graduated from Kindergarten. All this was done by the grace of the Lord and the generous giving of many of you.
Now the Lord is leading us to expand the school in order to include the entire Elementary School, from first to sixth grade. This means that we will have more students and more teachers. We will need more classrooms, more school equipment and supplies, etc. by the end of this year. We estimate a budget from $8,000.00 to $10,000.00 to complete the new building and to equip the new grades. In Guatemala the school year starts in January and ends in October.
The needs can seem overwhelming and the challenges are great in our sight, but every effort and every financial seed that you can sow in this ministry will bring hope for a brighter future to a child, family and community, it will bless thousands of lives and moreover, it will bring glory, honor and thanksgiving to the Name of Jesus.
LET US JOIN OUR HANDS TOGETHER TO BE THE HOPE FOR THE PRECIOUS BROTHERS AND SISTERS OF JESUS IN GUATEMALA.
Thank you and thanks to everyone who reads this letter. May God richly bless you!
Serving others together with you, for Him!
