After a week of arriving in Guatemala, our family was placed in lock down or quarantine here at Hope of Life. We are grateful for the forward thinking of the Administration with the organization to provide safety and security to us for our medical well-being.
The same approach has been taken here with closing airport, stores etc and social distancing as in the USA. The difference is there are so many people that depend on the organization we serve for life sustaining assistance when times are normal, so I am sure you understand the devastation. Guatemala does not have the systems in place to continue assistance when others cant reach out. Churches can not operate and people are starving. We are thankful that we serve a wonderful God that sees us thru these tough times.
We have been tasked with filling food bags, preparing medical supplies and sorting valuable needed items for families in the hills of Guatemala and neighboring villages. The temperatures have averaged 104 each day, with a feel like of 111. We will soon be in the rainy season and the humidity will increase sharply.
Please pray for HOL and the missionaries here as we work to continue Gods work thru HOL without the weekly assistance of teams that were visiting.
We are prayerful that COVID will end soon and teams can return to work for Christ and fulfill the needs of these people.
Thank you for your financial support. Once we are able to be moved into our permanent home and out of the village of Safe Haven we will post photographs of our home and discuss future goals.
God is good and we are obedient to His message and desire, see ya soon!
We have arrived at Hope of Life International in Guatemala. Please continue to pray for our mission as God begins to expose his plan to us. Every cent that you donate will be used toward this mission of insuring orphans transistion into caring, productive adults in a society that they can be successful.
Our goal is to nurture each child that comes into our care as if they were our natural children. We are eager to watch them grow and go to college, join the work force and begin there own families while instilling the love of Jesus Christ.
Please keep us in prayer, as days will not always be easy and struggles will abound. But, with the love and steadfast support of people like you, this mission will be a success!
Much love and more to follow!
In His service,
Dale, Lori, Traci Lee and Bekah
Thank you for viewing, we appreciate all that God has done already for His mission for our family. Please pray that God will continue to move in mighty ways.
Ok folks its getting close and here is your chance to help in a huge way, below is a link that will take you to our home in Maryland. It needs to sell so that we can take that income and put it to work for God's kingdom in Guatemala.
YOU can make it possible for my family to travel to Guatemala and "break ground" on a home that will radically change the lives of orphans forever! Thank you in advance for your donation, and most importantly thanks for praying for my family that we may answer God's call.
... to help put this in perspective, if everyone who views this on our friends list, gave $41 (less than a tank of fuel) we could build this house and be one step closer to reality in Guatemala. So, truely every dollar counts and will go toward building this home for countless generations beyond us to benefit from!
