We are all pretty tired this afternoon but once again the Lord has shown us clearly that Guatemala City was the mission for this team!
Our morning began by traveling just a short distance to a school for children that our Downs Syndrome. The women in charge has a son with this same condition and felt that the Lord was leading she and her husband to open this school. The children range from babies who come just a few afternoons a week with their parents, to teach the parents how to care for this children with special needs, to 24 years old! Many of them greeted us when we arrived with arms open wide and smiles on their faces. We mainly loved on them, singing, dancing, playing games. It was such a joy.
We left there and travel to a home for boys, 39 of them, who have been living on the streets because the parents have died, or abandoned them. As I type this I realize the stories really are the same all over the world! This school is trying to give them a good education and skills so that they one day can live on their own. We sang christian songs with them, placed games, shared the Gospel. The boys were very sweet, the group I worked with were from 7 to 11 years old and they listened very intently and when asked to answer questions, I could tell they really did listen!
The final stop was a home for young girls, run by the same ministry as the boy's home. Oh my, they were delightful, ages from 5 to 17 years old. Same situation as the boys, this is really a place to protect them, give them a place to live, food in their bellies and education. These girls loved the songs and fun and they especially responded to the Gospel message! Praise the Lord!
Tomorrow we will go to a school with 150 children and in the even I will teach at a seminary here in the City and hold a tea party for them.
Wow, you see what I mean about his being his plan?
Please pray for Danielle, she is sick with stomach trouble, we are not sure where she got it, we have been so careful.
Everyone else is healthy.
" I was hungry and you gave Me meat, I was thirty and you gave Me drink, I was a stranger and you took Me in, naked you clothed Me, when I was down you visited Me, when others turned you came unto Me. " I have only been able to do this because of you!!!!!!!
All because of my Sweet Jesus,
