Update from Hogar del Niño in Guatemala

May the Lord bless each one of you and I thank God for all the blessings we recieve daily. At the ¨Hogar del Niño¨ presently there are six children. Angelina who is 17 years old, Yessica who is 15 years old, Sandra who is 14 years old, Juan Manuel who is 13 years old, Samuelito who is 3 years old and Juanita who is 2 years old. We are very thankful because they are growing and in health. Juanita is going to therapy to learn to walk well and her progress is good each day. Samuelito is a very cute boy who is growing and playing each day. The older girls and boys are in school and this year they are working hard. Please pray so that they continue growing in school but most importantly in their knowledge about Jesus and His love for them. Also so that all of us that work with them and see them grow each day may have the wisdom and knowledge to guide and help them in different areas. Thank you and may the Lord bless you greatly.

The New Horizon School in Paraguay

New Horizon Students Welcome you! New Horizon Methodist School serves students with limited resources. We seek scholarships for the students and families who pay a small portion so they have a vested interest in their children’s education. We currently have 715 students from 4 years old through the 12th grade.  The school’s vision is to form leaders through academic excellence in order to develop integrity, discipline, wisdom, honesty, respect, and love of God and neighbor.  Currently, all our planned buildings have been constructed but there are various smaller projects and general maintenance that need to be attended to. However, building, maintenance, and construction are just a small part of our needs. We are looking for teams that are interested in joining our older students, school staff, and parents to visit local schools and poor settlements in our area and around Paraguay to do Evangelism projects. Also, we would like groups that can lead Bible studies, vacation bible school, leadership trainings and other seminars. Since the completion of our multipurpose building, we are also looking for teams that can help us conduct sports camps and tournaments, art programs, music and dance programs and plan theatre productions and concerts as community outreach programs for children, youth,...

Medical Mission Team to Haiti

The medical mission team to Haiti has been an incredible blessing to all that have gone. Haiti is a country trying to recover from one of the most devastating natural disasters on record. The country has very little in the way of medical support. Taking medical supplies and providing basic medical treatment helps protect the community from basic infections to providing daily vitamins. The things we take for granted are virtually unavailable to most Haitians. Children and prison inmates are the most susceptible to infections, rashes, worms, bacteria and STD’s. Women suffer especially with STD’s, infections and female problems. It is through this outreach that hundreds and thousands of lives are changed and encouraged. I wish that there were a problem with their being too many people willing to travel and help on medical missions to Haiti. God calls each of us to be servants and there can no greater love than serving in outreach. -Allen...
