Feed a child, save a family, share the Gospel, give eternity.
During the Covid-19 crisis, as countries around the world have struggled to combat the spread of the virus, people have suffered.
Guatemala, a developing country in Central America, shut down on March 16th, implemented strict quarantines, curfews and placed many restrictions on the population, all with the hopes of stopping the spread of a disease they believed they were ill equipped to handle.
People suffered, but the poorest suffered most.
The population we serve are amongst the most vulnerable. Many are day labors who use they money they earn one day, to pay for food the next.
When the country shut down, there was no transportation and little work. These people began to suffer.
Since March 16th, the Cadanino ministry run by Tim and Sharie Martiny, missionaries in Guatemala since 2002, stepped in to help.
Every month the families of the 200 students in our programs have received bags of food staples to ensure that they don’t go hungry during this crisis.
$20 pays for a bag of beans, rice, corn flour for tortillas and other essentials to cover basic meals for the family for a month.
We have 150 families in our programs so it costs $3,000 to pay for one round of food for them.
With every round of food distribution, we share a message of hope, encouragement and salvation that is only found in Jesus Christ.
All the parents and students who receive food are enrolled in our distance learning program of tutoring and Bible classes during the Covid-19 crisis and will return to classes in our two community centers when we hopefully resume classes in January 2021.
