Here is an update of some events that took place towards the end of last year, 2016
God has been at work in many ways. One of them has been in uniting a few of the couples in marriage! This has been answered prayer, considering what these couples have come through and how God is now being honored in their lives. It has been exciting to see, and this opens up doors of opportunity for them now in ministry!
During Christmas, there were many events. We collected donations from willing givers and were able to put together Christmas baskets for families in need. They included basic food items like rice, beans, sugar, salt, cookies, oil, and coffee, along with laundry detergent, matches and toilet paper. We put together 8 total. Also, a few of the ladies gave their time one afternoon to help bake over 300 cookies! We made some to take to the hospital as part of a small care package that included soap and toilet paper. Gabriela, Kenya, and myself went the next day to hand out 25 packages at the hospital. There was even enough to hand out a few cookies to the staff.
The rest of the cookies we gave out during Sunday night church service with hot cafe latte's (minus the espresso, just instant coffee but still delicious!)
The kids were also blessed in a big way, receiving Christmas gifts and a small dinner which was provided for by a few ladies who had sent things down from the states. They were so excited!
We also had our annual women's Christmas dinner where we had about 35 women come out and participate.
So much has gone on this past month which makes us excited to see what God has in store for this upcoming year. He is faithful!
We appreciate your prayers and support!
Love and Blessings,
