In the small community of Popabaj, God continues to show the early fruit of our work. Rosita and Ana started tracking the height and weight of the children in the community in March 2017, when the weekly program started. They are already showing increased physical growth. We have shared that the emotional and mental growth is showing fruit, but now there is also physical growth. Before the weekly community center meals, so many of these children and families were chronically hungry. Growth is nearly impossible with chronic malnutrition. Now, however, the groundwork is being laid for these children to be able to take the next steps toward school and future opportunities.
Have you ever desired to be part of something “bigger” but didn’t know how to make it happen or had precious little time to spare? For The Love of Missions has an incredible opportunity for you to impact lives that need the hope of relationships, mentoring and the ability to attend school. It’s called a sponsorship. We have the privilege of hosting the first annual Apple Chase 5K in October and are looking for individuals or companies to simply sponsor the race. All proceeds go directly to the families in need and are tax deductible. Below is a list of the different levels we are offering. Join the “Bigger” movement today by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For the Love of Missions desires poverty alleviation in all the communities we love in
Guatemala, but did you know we also desire poverty alleviation in our communities in the U.S.?
According to Brian Fikkert and Steve Corbett in When Helping Hurts, “Poverty alleviation is the ministry of reconciliation: moving people closer to glorifying God by living in right relationship with God, with self, with others, and with the rest of creation. This definition of poverty alleviation is based on the definition of poverty being so much more than just material poverty. True poverty alleviation is relational and occurs through discipleship as people grow in the love and grace of Jesus. While For the Love of Missions may engage in material poverty alleviation as part of our work, we do so as part of a bigger definition of poverty alleviation and always under the guidance of the local leaders.
